Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee cited the “victimization” of megastar Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai today before a large audience including political leaders, social activists, former High Court judges and politicians. celebrities. Calling the BJP a “cruel and undemocratic party,” she stressed the need for unity and asked for advice and guidance for the battle ahead.

Calling it a “ray of hope,” director Mahesh Bhat said, “India’s history is too vast and diverse to narrow it down to one narrative. The story of a plural, diverse and tolerant India must be this. to protect liberals from right-wing henchmen? “

India loves manpower, not muscle power. We are up against a cruel undemocratic party, the BJP. If we are together, we will win,” responded the head of Trinamool, who is visiting from two days in the state.

“Mahesh ji (director Mahesh Bhatt), you were a victim, Shah Rukh Khan was also a victim. If we are to win, we have to fight and talk wherever you can. You guide us and give us advice as a political party, ”added Ms. Banerjee, who was accompanied on this trip by poll strategist Prashant Kishor.

Whether there is a bridge between Bengal and Maharashtra is clear, she said, invoking the iconic Bengal poet Rabindranath Tagore and his poem about the warrior king Maratha Chhatrapati Shivaji.

The Trinamool leader’s mega victory over the powerful BJP electoral machine propelled her onto the national stage.
