Jubilant after the massive victory, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said TMC has won 90 per cent seats despite all opposition parties coming together, which is a "rarity".
"This shows how strong we are at the grassroot level," she said.
"That shows how solid we are at the grassroots. The BJP created hurdles in every step of my way, moved the High Court and Supreme Court, doing everything possible to stop me from working."
She also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "violating political propriety" by criticising the TMC at a public forum. "I haven't said anything in retort." The TMC supremo congratulated her party workers and promised them her best service. On this day Mamata denied the fact of brutal killing of the presiding officer in Raigaunj, and asked for CID investigation.
Infiltration during the rural polls to disrupt the law and order in the state was the main motto of the saffron brigade and the left front, she claimed.
Ms Banerjee stated that in 2013, CPI(M) had filed 11,000 nominations and the figure changed drastically in the current year which is 28,000.
The CM cried over the report sought by MHA over the violence. Earlier, the Prime Minister hit out at the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal over violence during the panchayat elections in the state, saying democracy was "murdered" for narrow political interests. On Thursday, the CM retaliated over the statement given by PM. Hitting out at the PM directly, Ms Banerjee asked Mr Modi not to convey such words against a state.
She concluded by appealing to President Ram Nath Kovind to look into the political crisis in such a situation running across the nation.
