Mamta ‘Didi’ and Amit Shah are both close to my heart – Basudev Das
After joining the program, Basudev Das has said that both ‘Mamta’ Didi ‘and Amit Shah are very close to my heart.’ Das said that ‘I came here to perform. Today Didi (Mamata Banerjee) called me, so here I am, if someone from BJP invites me, I will perform at their rally too. The Bowl community belongs to everyone. Both Didi and Amit Shah ji honored me. ‘
Even in Mamta Banerjee’s program, Basudev Das narrated the same song he had played to Amit Shah. The song’s lyrics are ‘Tomay Hrid Majhe Rakhibo Chhare Debo Na’ which means ‘will give you a place inside the heart and will not let you go anywhere’.
Mamta Banerjee targeted BJP
Taking a dig at the BJP during the rally, CM Mamta said that ‘you can buy some MLAs, but can’t buy TMC. It does not matter if some MLAs leave the party, the public is with us.
The Chief Minister said, ‘Vice Chancellor of Visva Bharati is a BJP man, he is promoting communal politics, damaging the heritage of the university. I feel bad when I see efforts being made for communal politics in Visva-Bharati. Those who do not respect Mahatma Gandhi and other great men of the country, talk of making ‘Sonar Bangla’.
