Trinamool’s election strategist team inquired about the progress of Mamata Banerjee’s Didi Ke Bolo campaign at grassroots level
The common people’s anger and resentment reflected how the ruling party is losing its grassroots connect in Bengal.
Addressing the Martyrs' Day rally here on Sunday, Banerjee alleged that central agencies were threatening leaders of her party to "get in touch" with the saffron party.
The leaders were slapped with a ‘penalty’ of Rs 2 crore as they allegedly collected cut money, ranging from Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000, from hundreds of beneficiaries under the houses for the poor scheme.
Local Trinamool leader, Trilochan Mukherjee, returned money to 141 beneficiaries with one recipient getting Rs 1,617 in a 'kangaroo' court.
Opposition demanded a statement by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and setting up an inquiry commission to go into the matter.
