The doctors movement which started from Kolkata’s NRS hospital, has grown into a nation wide movement and is still growing. But that doesn’t seem to be bothering West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee a bit. The Chief Minister on Friday made it clear that she won’t be softening her stance on the protests.
The CM said that a lot of imposters are posing as doctors to instigate the protests. She also said that this media attention on her is only going to make her stronger.
“Outsiders are instigating the doctors. I had rightly said that they were involved in yesterday’s protest. I had seen some outsiders raising slogans (at SSKM hospital),” she said while addressing a rally here.
She once again also tried to play the regionalist card to counter BJP saying that those living in West Bengal will have to learn Bengali.
“Just because they (BJP) won a few seats by programming the EVMs, it doesn’t mean that they can beat up Bengalis and minorities. We will not tolerate this,” the chief minister said.
“The police will take action against the hooligans. If someone is living in Bengal, he or she has to learn Bengali,” she added.
