Mamata asks people to be ready for early Assembly elections
Nanoor: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee today asked people to gear up for early Assembly
elections in West Bengal.
"Elections will be held after two or three months in the
state. You should be ready for that," Banerjee said while
addressing a rally here in Birbhum district.
Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi during his
August visit to the state had, however, ruled out advancement
of the polls, saying as per the constitutional provisions they
are due only next June.
Banerjee told the rally that she would review land
reforms carried out in West Bengal, if voted to power.
"We will review land reforms in the state and also
investigate corrupt police officers," she said.
Talking about the recent train derailments in the state,
Banerjee, also the Union Railway Minister, said it had been
noticed that sabotage incidents took place in the areas where
she started mass political campaigns.
