Where's the leader of the country, wonders Mamata

Kolkata, Aug 22 : Contending that India was passing through "an intolerable economic disaster", West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Thursday wondered "where is the leader of the country" to save the people from economic onslaught and internal and external security threats.


"The country is passing through a nightmarish situation. From petrol to onions, from diesel to dollar, prices are skyrocketing. The economic disaster through which the country is passing is simply intolerable," Banerjee said on her official Facebook page.

"Where is the leader of the country to save the people from economic onslaught and the internal and external security threats?" she asked.

Observing that the "economic security of the common people is at stake", Banerjee said: "Is it a product of the so-called reforms and activities being pushed by the Government at the centre in view of the ensuing Lok Sabha election?

"Is a type of political gimmickry going on to satisfy some political parties at the expense of the common people? The country cannot be run like this," she said.

She also sought public opinion and called for public mobilisation on the issue.

"Public opinion and mobilisation is very much needed at this hour. Let us all make a collective effort to save our country," added Banerjee.
