Mamata Banerjee to take oath as WB Chief Minister on May 27
Kolkata: Refusing to have been nursing any ambition to become prime Minister ever, the Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee on Thursday announced to take oath as West Bengal Chief Minister of West Bengal on May 27, second time in succession.
“I will take oath on May 27 and a session of Assembly will be called before May 29,” said Mamata while addressing a press conference here after it became clear that her party won in the polls.
Sounding modest, she said, in reply to a question, that his stature was too small to aspire for Prime Ministerial post.
What else she said:
- There is no corruption in West Bengal.
- Want to thank the people of Bengal for giving us huge victory.
- The opposition was united against us this time.
- We fought alone this time.
- Attempts were made to mislead and create an atmosphere of fear among people but they voted peacefully and fearlessly.
- We have called a meeting of newly elected MLAs on Friday at 1230 hours.
- Consider me as ‘least important person’ when asked about her role in 2019 elections.
- I do not aim to be the Prime Minister; I am too small a person for that post.
- If party loses its ideology it loses everything, Congress has lost everything.
