On Wednesday, Mamata Banerjee got a notice from the Election Commission. The poll panel issued this notice to Mamata Banerjee for violating the model code of conduct, after she allegedly urged the Muslim community to vote en block for the TMC.
Responding to this, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said that “the Election Commission may serve 10 showcause notices on her but she won’t change her stance”. The TMC supremo, Mamata Banerjee further pronounced that “You (EC) can issue 10 showcause notices to me but my reply will be the same. I will always speak against any division in Hindu, Muslim votes. I will always stand against the division of voters along religious lines.”
During her campaign in Domjur's assembly seat, she also raised a question that why no complaint has been filed against BJP star campaigner and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he often makes references to Hindu and Muslim vote-banks while delivering speeches. She raised this question by saying that “Why is it that no complaint has been filed against Narendra Modi, who every day talks about Hindu and Muslim (vote banks)? How many complaints have been lodged against those who had uttered the word ‘mini Pakistan during the Nandigram campaigns?”
