Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of Bengal and Trinamool Congress chief hit out at the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) led central government on Sunday, saying that the country is going through “super emergency” and asked the people to take a pledge “to safeguard the constitutional values” of India, on the International Day of Democracy.

Banerjee in her tweet said, “On the International Day of Democracy today, let us once again pledge to safeguard the constitutional values our country was founded on. In this era of ‘Super Emergency’, we must do all it takes to protect the rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees.”

The West Bengal Chief Minister had been critical of the BJP government and voiced her adverse views on several occasions.

Earlier, in June hitting out at the BJP, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on the occasion of anniversary of the Emergency imposed in 1975, said that the country is going through “super emergency” for the past five years.

“Today is the anniversary of the Emergency declared in 1975. For the last five years, the country went through a ‘Super Emergency’. We must learn our lessons from history and fight to safeguard the democratic institutions in the country,” Banerjee tweeted.

BJP and TMC are at loggerheads in West Bengal as BJP managed to make huge inroads in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019.

On September 12, Banerjee led a protest march against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam that has faced backlash for leaving out 19 lakh people from the list.

She has called the NRC,  a “fiasco” for which the nation deserves an answer.
