Kolkata : Mocking Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee’s ‘Delhi Chalo’ call, the Congress on Friday said, she should first learn to fulfill her duties as Chief Minister before dreaming of being a Prime Minister.

Congress MP and Union Minister Deepa Dasmunsi, said: “The dream of becoming PM should be kept aside and steps should be taken to provide security to the women. The incident of rapes and atrocities against women have become a daily affair in Bengal.”

Congress leader Shakeel Ahmed Khan lashed at Banerjee for not coming clean on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. “Mamata

Banerjee is dreaming of becoming PM. She is yet to come clean on Narendra Modi. Both Narendra Modi and Rajnath  Singh have praised Banerjee, everybody knows the meaning.”

Somen Mitra, who has recently defected from TMC, said:  “Even if Trinamool wins all the 42 seats I cannot understand how she will play a deciding factor as the Lok Sabha consists of more than 500 seats.”

Kickstarting her party’s campaign for the LS election at a rally, Banerjee, who had shared power earlier with NDA and UPA at the Centre, attacked both saying “we do not want dynastic rule, nor do we want a government of rioters at the Centre”.

Renewing her call for a federal front of non-Congress and non-BJP political parties, Banerjee had lashed at the BJP, saying her party does not want a government of rioters and  announced the TMC would go alone in the forthcoming Lok Sabha election.
