"This is the first time a prime minister did not call," said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on congratulatory message from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
This comes a day after Banerjee's Trinamool Congress won the West Bengal Assembly election with more than 200 seats. After the win, the PM tweeted his congratulatory message but did not call her.
She said, "They (BJP) are posting photographs of old riots, it's their habit. I don't like any violence. Why BJP is doing that? Even after winning with a thumping majority, we didn't do any kind of celebration."
She also alleged that the returning officer of Nandigram feared for his life and so he did not give a recounting order. Addressing a press meet, Banerjee reiterated that she will move court over the election result in Nandigram where she lost to BJP's Suvendu Adhikari.
"How come EC reverse Nandigram result after formally announcing it? We will move court against this," she said.
"Why was the server down for four hours? We are willing to accept people's mandate but if the result of one place has anomalies, there may be something beyond what appears. We have to seek the truth," she added.
Banerjee urged her supporters to maintain peace amid reports of violence from some areas, asking them not to fall prey to provocations.
The central forces committed many atrocities on TMC supporters during the elections, she alleged.
"Even after the results were announced, BJP attacked our supporters in certain areas but we ask our men not to get provoked and instead report to the police," she said.
Banerjee alleged that some of the police officers worked in a partisan manner against the TMC during the elections.
Hitting out at the Election Commission, she claimed that the BJP would not have crossed the 50-mark in its tally if the poll panel would not have helped it.
The chief minister again demanded that every citizen of the country should be given free vaccines by the Centre.
"They are sending vaccine and oxygen to two-three states. Why so? Every state should get its due. I have heard that in Gujarat, vaccine is being given from the BJP party office. Does they (BJP) have any expertise in giving vaccines?" she claimed.
Replying to a question, Banerjee said her priority is fighting the pandemic and would think about her role in the national elections of 2024 once the COVID-19 crisis is over.
"I am just a street fighter. I can boost the morale of the people, so that we can fight a strong fight against the BJP. One cannot do everything alone and it should be a collective effort. If collectively we can take a decision, together we can fight the battle of 2024. But, first let us fight this COVID crisis and then we will decide on this. Now is not the time," she said.
