Panaji: Trinamool Congress Party supremo Mamata Banerjee on Saturday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to be more powerful because of the Congress party.
Addressing a group of mediapersons in Panaji on the last day of her three-day-long visit to the coastal state, Banerjee also said that Congress could not take their decisions due to which the country is suffering.
“I cannot say everything right now because they didn’t take politics seriously to politics. Modiji is going to be more powerful because of the Congress,” she said.
Banerjee said “If one cannot take a decision, why should the country should suffer for that.”
“They (Congress) got opportunity (in the past). Instead of BJP, they contested against me in my state. Don’t you think when they contested against me, when they contested my political party in Bengal….,” she commented.
Banerjee said that TMC believes in distributing seats for the regional parties.
“I want the regional parties to be strong. We want the federal structure to be strong. We should make states strong, if states are strong, then the central will be strong. Delhi ka dadagiri amka naka (We don’t want dadagiri of Delhi) enough is enough,” she said.
When asked about which are the decisions that Congress should be taking, she said “I am not going to discuss Congress because this is not my party. I have set up my regional party and without any support from anybody, we formed a three times government.”
“ Let them decide. That is my system also, I don’t interfere with any other political party business, I can talk about my political party and our fight will continue. We are not going to bow down our heads to BJP,” she added.
