West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said she does not believe in politics of revenge otherwise she had enough grounds to send some CPI(M) leaders to jail after coming to power in the state.
Unveiling the festival edition of TMC mouthpiece ‘Jago Bangla’, Banerjee also took on social media trolling and alleged that outsiders have been hired to spread misinformation about the state.
“At times I feel ashamed and embarrassed when I visit Delhi and discover how some people are spreading falsehood to malign Bengal, how they badmouth the state,” she said.
The chief minister said that these people cannot see the recognitions received by her government, and the achievements it made.
“One particular comment is picked up and twisted and circulated in social media and you are trolled,” she said.
“Some outsiders have been hired to spread misinformation. This is not the culture of our state,” she added.
