TMC expansion: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s Shaheed Diwas speech to be telecast in many states
Kolkata, July 19: In a bid to expand its footprint across India, Trinamool Congress (TMC) has decided to virtually televise Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Shahid Diwas address on July 21 across several states, including Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Assam and others.
According to TMC supremo's Shaheed Diwas speech will be live telecast in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow, Mirzapur, Azamgarh, Bareilly, Banaras. Besides UP, the speech will be telecast across 32 districts in Gujarat, Tripura, Delhi and Madurai and Chennai in Tamil Nadu.
Giant screens will be put up at specific locations in the respective areas where people can watch and listen to Mamata Banerjee's speech.
After securing a landslide victory in the West Bengal Assembly elections 2021, Mamata Banerjee's nephew and TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee announced that the party will expand its base in other states to take on the BJP.
Addressing a press conference after his elevation, Abhishek said TMC will take the BJP head-on in every state where it gets to gain a foothold.
"We have received around one lakh emails from people across India thanking the TMC for defeating the BJP in assembly polls. We will take the BJP head-on in every state where the TMC builds its foundation," the TMC MP had said.
