BJP using media power to win polls: Mamata Banerjee
Charging the BJP with using "media power" for winning the Lok Sabha polls, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Saturday accused the opposition of carrying out a "malicious campaign" against her.
Addressing rallies in northern West Bengal's Jalpaiguri and Dinhata, Banerjee, also the Trinamool Congress supremo, said her party was being made the soft target for attacks as it stuck to its principles.
She also lashed out at the media, alleging some sections of the fourth estate have sold themselves to "money power".
Attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party, she said the party may use media power to show a wave, "but its divisive and communal agenda will not win".
"Certain sections of the media have been sold off. They are hyping any small little incident against me. We will not bow down to any pressure. Some media houses may have huge bank balance, but we have people with us," she said.
"We do not have money power. We do not have any deals with media. We work honestly for the people.We will not use money power for buying votes. We will struggle for the sake of people," she said.
In an indirect attack on the Election Commission, Banerjee said the Trinamool's hoardings were being removed, and they were not allowed to put up posters.
"Our wall graffiti is not allowed. How will we campaign?" she asked.
Banerjee said though the opposition was conducting "malicious campaigns", Trinamool had the people's trust.
