West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has not been allowed by the Modi government at the Center to visit Rome next month. After this decision of the central government, not only Mamata Banerjee but the MP of BJP himself has slammed his own government. Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has asked the government of his own party why Mamata Banerjee has been stopped from going to Rome.
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy tweeted on his official Twitter handle and asked- ‘Why did the Home Ministry stop Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from attending an international conference in Rome? Which law prevents her from going?’ Let us tell you that Mamata Banerjee was invited to participate in the ‘World Peace Conference’.
In fact, in August this year, Banerjee was invited to attend the event by Macro Impagliazzo, president of the Community of Saint Egidio, a Catholic association based in Rome. She is the only Indian who has been called. Pope Francis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and HE Ahmed al-Tayeb, the highest imam of Egypt’s Al-Alzhar, among others, are expected to attend the conclave on October 6 and 7, 2021.
After this decision of the central government, Mamata Banerjee has expressed her strong objection to the decision of the central government and said that PM Modi is jealous of her. Mamata Banerjee said that the decision of the central government expresses the feeling of jealousy towards her party. Addressing a rally for the Bhawanipore assembly by-election, Mamata said that the Italian government had invited her to participate in the upcoming World Peace Conference held on October 6 and 7, but the BJP government at the Center denied her permission. She said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Center can defeat the Congress, cannot defeat the Trinamool Congress.
Mamata claimed that Bhawanipur would take the country towards a BJP-mukt Bharat and the voters here would repeat the same performance as they did in 2011 and 2016. She challenged the BJP and said that the ‘khela’ will end only when her party wins the entire country. She said that the Trinamool Congress alone is enough to defeat the BJP at the Centre. We have to protect our freedom. BJP cannot run in India.
