RANAGHAT: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today kept up her defiance against the Election Commission and said she would continue to do and say as she liked and transfer of police officers by it will not affect her party's poll prospects.

- EC Examining Mamata's Outburst Against Showcause Notice

"I will continue to do or say as I like. If somebody threatens me I roar back. Transfer of police officers will not have any impact on our (TMC) poll prospect ... We do not believe in threat in politics."" Banerjee told poll meetings at Nadia district a day after she was issued a showcause notice by EC for allegedly violating the model code of conduct.

Police officers are being transferred by EC "at the drop of a hat" but the transfer of some ICs and OCs of the police will unite the rest of them. "All police officers are our men," she claimed.

The TMC supremo accused the poll panel of acting only on the complaints of opposition-sponsored "syndicates" and transferring police officers.

"Please close down your complaint book and act in an impartial manner to ensure a free and fair polls in the state. Instead of that you are acting only on the complaints of the opposition-sponsored syndicates, which has developed in the state this time.

"People in Bengal will not tolerate this insult ... Seven TMC workers are killed in poll violence. What steps the poll panel has taken? It only knows to act on the complaints of opposition-sponsored syndicates," she said.

People would have to "deactivate" these "complain syndicates", who are calling on the EC in Delhi every now and then out of "fear psychosis" by rejecting the opposition in the election in a fitting reply to the poll panel.

"Once the poll result is declared on May 19, they (Opposition) will be surprised as their dreams will be shattered," she claimed.

The TMC supremo further said her party would play an important role after 2019 Lok Sabha election. "Bengal will show the way to Delhi."
