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.
