As per PTI report, Addressing the rally, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee trained her guns at the BJP saying, BJP is trying to break the government everywhere, this has become their job. In West Bengal, they tried to defeat us but could not succeed. It has been raining here and roads were full of water but our supporters did not move .

Mamata took on the Centre over recent GST hike too saying, Now that GST has been imposed on puffed rice as well, so will the people of BJP not eat that now. GST is levied on sweets, lassi, and curd. What will people eat? GST is even imposed when a patient is hospitalized
