Mamata faces attack by BJP workers in Varanasi, says “defeat is imminent”

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday alleged that she was attacked by BJP workers on her visit to Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.

These actions indicated BJP’s “imminent” defeat in the ongoing assembly elections, said TMC supremo.

West Bengal CM arrived in the city Wednesday to campaign for Samajwadi Party.

Voting for the seventh and final round will be held on March 7 for Varanasi and its eight adjoining districts.

Mamata faced protests from Hindu Yuva Vahini during her visit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency, with the members of the Hindu militant group waving black flags and raising slogans such as “Mamata Banerjee wapas jao (go back)” and “Jai Shri Ram”.

“I was coming from the airport yesterday and going to the ghat. Midway, some BJP workers, who have nothing in their brain except violence, stopped my vehicle. They hit my car, pushed me and told me to go back,” Mamata said.

“It was then that I thought, they are going out (of power). They are completely gone, their defeat is imminent,” news agency PTI quoted Banerjee as saying at a poll rally in Varanasi.
