RAMCHANDRAPUR, Mar 29 : Reacting sharply to BJP chief Amit Shah's comment that the sound of Rabindra Sangeet was getting drowned out by bomb blasts in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today said there will be no "bigger enemy" than her for anybody who insulted the state.
"If anyone insults Bengal, there will be no bigger enemy than myself," she said at a poll rally here in Purulia district.
"Today you (BJP) are in power in Delhi, but you will lose tomorrow," the Chief Minister said.
Referring to the remarks by the BJP President, she said, "I have heard (Shah) has said something about Rabindranath.
"People of Bengal do not forgive anyone who insults great poets like Rabindranath Tagore and Kazi Nazrul Islam," she said at the rally ahead of the upcoming Assembly polls in the state. During a press meet in Kolkata earlier in the day, Shah said the only industry to have come up in Bengal under Trinamool Congress rule was the bomb-making industry.
"Only the bomb-making industry has come up in West Bengal in the last five years. And the sound of Rabindra Sangeet is getting suppressed because of those bomb blasts," he said.    ?PTI
