Kolkata, Nov 24: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee set a new standard in public vocabulary when she uttered S**a to identify an unknown enemy entering her territory and accusing her party's members as thieves. [Mamata accuses RAW of carrying out Burdwan blast]
Banerjee, who attacked the Centre, CBI and media at a workers' meeting here saying all were conspiring against her government, said somebody from outside and was accusing everybody as a thief. "What are you? A saint? S**a," said Banerjee. She withdrew it immediately but gave a strange reason for using it. She said nobody knew the person's name. Hence she used the word!

Trinamool Congress's Rajya Sabha MP and national spokesperson Derek O'Brien couldn't hide his smile when her party supremo uttered the word. Later, he even said that after hearing Banerjee's speech, he would commit for another 50 years, a Telegraph report said.
Banerjee attacked the ABP Group which also publishes The Telegraph newspaper, asking people not to read its newspapers.
The TMC chief blasted the Centre and the CBI over the arrest of her Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam. Bose became the second MP to have been arrested after Kunal Ghosh in connection to the scam.
She said the Centre was conspiring to impose President's Rule in the state, adding that everybody, including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, was scared to speak out, The Telegraph said.
