"We will fight and not stop till the BJP is ousted from power".

Resonating similar views, another BJP leader Vinay Katiyar stated that Mamata is a "hypocrite".

BJP state President Dilip Ghosh, in turn, alleged that it was TMC which maintained a double standard. This statement and campaign of hers truly proves her lust for power. She said her movement against the BJP will continue till the BJP government at the Centre is defeated in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. In 2019 our slogan will be "BJP quit India".

Yesterday, Mamata launched the "BJP Quit India Movement" to oust the saffron party from the country. "We will never allow the division", Banerjee said reiterating her stand.

She alleged that "secularism is under threat" and "the BJP-led government is trying to divide the country". "We want this politics of communalism and hatred to come to an end", Mamata said while kicking off the campaign in Medinipur of West Bengal.

Referring to the victory of Ahmed Patel for election to Rajya Sabha from Gujarat, she said she was glad that democracy emerged victorious in the battle between democracy and dictatorship on the PM's home turf.

"This is an all-Bengal movement".

Such kind of agitation in the hills has become common in a 10-15 year interval and there had been a loss of Rs 550 crore and that the state administration had shown restraint, she had said at the house. All the districts, down to the block-level, will be covered.

Mamata also informed that she would attend the rally convened by RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav in Patna later this month and will fight for the rights of adivasis (tribal) and backward classes of the society.
