Borrowing from Bangladesh, Mamata gave the slogan: Shuvendu

Trinamool BJP leader Shuvendu Adhikari has once again taunted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. He said that Mamata spoke by borrowing slogans from Bangladesh

West Bengal politics is heated over the killing of five people in a massive clash in Sitalkuchi in the 4th phase of assembly elections. Trinamool and BJP leaders have been giving counter-statements since the incident. 

Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee held a press conference after the clash. Claiming that all the dead were grassroots supporters, Mamata said the central security forces had fired directly at her staff. He likens it to genocide.

On the other hand, Shuvendu Adhikari, who left the grassroots and joined the BJP, once again taunted Mamata. During the 5th phase of the election campaign on Saturday, he addressed Mamata as 'Begum' and said that she was saying one anti-national thing after another. Shuvendu also commented that most of Mamata's slogans were borrowed from Bangladeshi leaders.

As West Bengal politics heats up over the clashes at the polling station, the country's Election Commission has said no political leader can enter Cooch Behar in the interest of investigation and to keep the situation calm. The commission also called for a report on Saturday's clashes with security forces.

Meanwhile, top Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has announced his visit to West Bengal for the election campaign in the middle of the polls. His party has said it will hold two public rallies in Dinajpur and Darjeeling on April 14.
