When two women were undressed, paraded, and gangraped on May 4 in Manipur, the BJP-led administration at the federal level came under further fire from Banerjee.

Mamata Banerjee, the leader of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and chief minister of West Bengal (WB), announced the launch of her party’s 2024 Lok Sabha election campaign after returning from a meeting of


26 opposition parties in Bengaluru where it was decided to use the name Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) for the elections. She added that “INDIA would fight” and that the TMC would participate in the campaign as “a soldier carrying a flag.”

Banerjee, whose TMC won 22 of the 40 seats in the 2019 elections, promised to utilize the slogans “Jai Bangla” (victory to West Bengal) and “Jai India” (victory to India) throughout all party initiatives.

Speaking at the TMC’s annual rally in Kolkata, Banerjee called for the designation of July 21 as “martyrs day” in memory of the 13 Congress workers who lost their lives in police shootings during a

demonstration she organized in 1993.
TMC would stand behind India while it fights, acting as a soldier holding a banner. Let India triumph. Let BJP fail. Modi won’t succeed. My sole slogan is that. Along with our (party’s) slogan, “Jai Bangla,” we shall

use the phrase “Jai INDIA” during the upcoming 2024 elections. To make this motto more well-known, we will include it in all of our program

The TMC “did not want a chair,” according to Banerjee, but the nation could no longer stand the BJP. “I am pleased that we have established an alliance called INDIA in advance of the elections in 2024. Under this banner would be waged the entire conflict. India will triumph. A chair is not what we want. We favor

the overthrow of the BJP. They can no longer be tolerated. They have gone beyond all bounds, she declared.
When two women were undressed, displayed, and gangraped on May 4 in Manipur, she intensified her criticism of the BJP-led central government. “We express our support for the people of Manipur. We’re

here for you. Where is the BJP’s slogan “Save Daughter”? The girl is on fire right now. Manipur is in flames. They will remove you from office in the upcoming elections in 2024 if you (the BJP) insult the dignity of women, she said.

According to Banerjee, negotiations are ongoing to send a delegation from INDIA that includes the chief ministers to Manipur. “We won’t be leaving Manipur. Sisters from the North East are our sisters, she remarked.
According to Banerjee, the BJP has been disseminating phony movies to disparage West Bengal. The TMC leader claimed that the Prime Minister had made this abundantly obvious when he addressed West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan during his speech on Manipur.

She said that the MGNREGA and PMAY programs no longer receive funding from the federal government and that the West Bengal administration would introduce two state-funded programs in their place.

“Even after the center ended the 100-day work program, the state nevertheless gave job card holders 26 days of employment. We would launch a 100-day work plan in WB in the future. The state would provide the funding. “Khela Hobe” (Game on) would be the name of it. Even after promising to build 1.1 million homes, the center stopped providing funding for the PMAY. With our money, we would build them. They would be built in stages. We have the funding set up,” she stated.

In the 2021 assembly elections, when the TMC won a resounding win and returned to power in the state for the third time in a row, “Khela Hobe” served as the party’s campaign slogan.
TMC national general secretary and MP Abhishek Banerjee, who also spoke at the protest, announced that the TMC would hold a “huge rally” on October 2 in Delhi to demand the delivery of federal funding. He added that on August 5, TMC members would picket the residences of BJP leaders.
