Will attend Iftar 100 times: Mamata over Muslim appeasement allegations


May 26, 2019

Showing scant regard for the BJP’s constant criticism that she was appeasing Muslims, Mamata Banerjee on Saturday indicated that she would continue to attend ‘Iftaars’ as the community votes for her Trinamool Congress.

Banerjee, who was addressing the media, made the potentially controversial comment while inviting the media to attend an Iftaar party organised by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation towards the end of the month.

“I am going to the Iftar party. You all also please come,” Mamata Banerjee said.

“I appease Muslims, no? I will go there a hundred times. ‘Je goru dudh dei tar lathio khete hoi; (if a cow gives milk, one has to be prepared for its kicks also),” she said.

The Muslim community voted for Banerjee’s Trinamool in the recent elections, where a lot of Hindu votes shifted to the BJP which came up with best performance in Bengal taking 18 seats.

The Trinamool, which had got 34 seats five years back, saw its tally getting reduced to 22.
