“Bengalis are ready to teach the Suu Kyi authorities a lesson,” she said. The people cannot be divided on the basis of ’70:30 vote share. We are all equal ‘, Mamata said.

Mamata Banerjee said authorities were using Hindu-Muslim cards. ‘I come from a Brahmin family. No one should teach me Hindu Dharma ‘, Mamata said.

Mamta said, ‘Those who are playing the Hindu-Muslim card, I want to tell them clearly that I too am a girl from a Hindu family. Don’t play Hindu cards with me.

Ever since the announcement of contesting elections from Nandigram, BJP has started calling Mamata an outsider. In retaliation on Tuesday, Mamta said, ‘Some people are saying that I am an outsider. 

How can I become an outsider when I am from Bengal? And the people coming from Delhi are not outsiders? Are the goons coming from Rajasthan not outsiders? If I am an outsider, I would not have been the Chief Minister.
