I will continue to highlight your misdeeds as Trinamool Congress will always fight for the poor and the helpless. It is the government of the people, for the people and by the people,” she said during a recent meeting held in Birbhum. She had referred to the arrest of party’s MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay and said: “Why Sudipda was kept behind bars for so many months?” Over the months, the all-India leaders have realised that the BJP will try their utmost to break the grand alliance.last_img
