‘Return to ballot’: Days after Lok Sabha poll results, Mamata expresses concerns over EVMs



Days after facing a tough fight from the BJP in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee accused the saffron party of spreading lies about the state. Mamata also expressed concern over EVMs and suggested that polling should be conducted using paper ballots. TMC will campaign from door to door. Save democracy, we dont want EVMs, return to ballot. There should be a fact finding committee on EVMs, In the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, Mamata Banerjees party TMC won 22 of the 42 states in West Bengal, while BJP won 18. In recent times, Mamata has also in a war of words of with the BJP on the issue of Jai Shree Ram slogan. While the saffron party has repeatedly accused her of getting angry merely on hearing the slogan, the TMC supremo has accused them of mixing politics with religion. The BJP has also announced that it would send postcards with slogans of Jai Shree Ram, written on it. The party also announced that it would send Get Well Soon cards to the CM. On Sunday, taking to her Facebook, Mamata wrote, Every political party has their own slogan. My party has Jai Hind, Vande Mataram. The Left has Inquilab Zindabad. Others have different slogans. We respect each other. Also read: We respect these sentiments. But BJP is using religious slogan like Jai Sia Ram as their party slogan in a misconceived manner by way of mixing religion with politics. We do not respect this forcible enforcement of political slogans on others in the name of so called RSS which Bengal never accepted, Mamata Banerjee also said that attempts are being made to sell the hatred ideology through violence, which must be opposed. One can fool some people sometimes, but cannot fool all the people all the time,
