Voting for Meira to protest BJP's 'atrocities': Mamata

Meanwhile, targeting the Centre for having bad relations with West Bengal, Banerjee termed it like a "sandwich".

Now, she has also blamed Central agencies like the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) and the National Investigating Agency (NIA), saying that China and Nepal are responsible for the Gorkhaland fires that have singed the "Chicken Neck" region of north Bengal, while the communal trouble in Basirhat in the North 24 Parganas district is being caused by Bangladeshi infiltrators as well as RSS-affiliated organisations from this side of the border.

Speaking to the media after casting her presidential vote here on Monday, the West Bengal chief minister drew comparisons between the acts of cow vigilantes with the mythology of Lord Hanuman burning down Lanka with fire on his tail.

What is SSB, IB, RAW doing here? "We will not bow our head, we will be happy to go to jail", she said.

As the Monsoon session of the Parliament began on Monday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, her party will play an aggressive role in coming days.

"We are voting for Meira Kumar because it's a vote against the atrocities of the Bharatiya Janata Party, violence in the name of cow vigilantism, interference in federal structure... And if we protest, we will be threatened by the CBI, ED and I-T", she said.
