Mamata Banerjee thinks she is a tiger, but she is a cat: Dilip Ghosh's fresh attack on West Bengal CM
Kolkata, Feb 11: West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh slammed State Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying "she considers herself a tiger but her situation is that of a cat". Ghosh's attack comes amidst a heated atmosphere in the state in the wake of the Assembly elections, due in April-May later this year.
"She considers herself a Royal Bengal Tiger. Real tigers don't call themselves tiger. Now her situation is that of a cat. Even her party members and administrative officers don't fear her," Ghosh said.
His remarks come a day after Mamata Banerjee launched a blistering attack at the BJP, saying that she is not a weak person who can be intimidated by the saffron party. The Trinamool Congress supremo further said that she will live like a Royal Bengal Tiger till the time she is alive.
"There is no reason to think I am weak, I am not a person to be afraid of anything. I am a strong person and will keep my head high as long as I live and till then I will live like a Royal Bengal Tiger," Banerjee said.
"The BJP seems to be a washing machine, those having dirty hands emerge clean after joining it," she said, mounting her attack on TMC defectors.
