Manage Uttar Pradesh first: Mamata Banerjee advices Yogi Adityanath
Purulia : West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday attacked Yogi Adityanath, who addressed a rally in Purulia, advising the Bharatiya Janata Party leader to "manage Uttar Pradesh first" where “many people including a police officer have been killed”.
Responding to a question about Yogi’s rally, Banerjee said, “Let him hold the rally…Ask him to manage Uttar Pradesh first. So many people have been killed in UP. Police (officer) was also killed. So many farmers have committed suicide in UP. So many people have been lynched in UP. Let him first manage Uttar Pradesh.”
“If he contests (election) today, he will lose. He does not have a place in UP to contest, so he is roaming around in Bengal. Let him roam,” Banerjee said in Kolkata on the third day of her sit-in against the Narendra Modi government after a team of Central Bureau of Investigation reached Kolkata to question city police commission Rajeev Kumar in connection with a chit fund scam case.
Denied permission to land in Purulia, Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday landed in BJP-rules Bokaro, travelled 50-odd kilometres to reach Purulia and hold his scheduled rally.
