Addressing a poll rally at Bankura in West Bengal, Banerjee said that despite farmers protesting at the Delhi borders, all the BJP ministers are here in Bengal.
Farmers have been protesting for 6 months now, however, the ministers are not holding talks with them.

“Farmers have been protesting for six months now, however, the ministers are not holding talks with them. All the ministers are here, in Bengal, where they have booked hotels and are conspiring to kill me, destroy TMC and how to file cases against TMC with the help of EC,” ANI quoted her as saying.
Banerjee also accused Union Home Minister and BJP senior leader Amit Shah of hatching a conspiracy to harass Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders. She further claimed that he is getting “frustrated” by “poor turnout” at his rallies.
“Amit Shah is getting frustrated as there is a poor turnout at his rallies. Instead of running the country, he is sitting in Kolkata and hatching a conspiracy to harass TMC leaders. What do they want? Do they want to kill me? Do they think that they will win this election by killing me? They are wrong,” she said at her campaign rally.
The TMC supremo asked whether Shah is running the Election Commission and giving “instructions” to them.
