As Mamata arrived in a chopper, people climbed trees and sat on roofs to catch a glimpse of the CM, who seemed exhilarated on her arrival at undisputed territory for TMC.

The firebrand leader started off by hitting out at the election commission and soon took on the police for their high handed approach.

She also dealt blows to the newly appointed Kolkata police commissioner.

Then targeted the Congress and CPM for being hand in glove with the authorities.

She challenged paramilitary forces,

And warned of dire consequences for those acting against her.

At the end she invoked uprisings in Singur and Nandigram to remind how she can stand up to police.

As East Medinipur and Cooch Behar districts are set to vote in the last phase of Assembly elections on May 5, Didi’s war cry has certainly raised the bar.
