BJP collecting TMC’s garbage: Mamata

Kolkata: Coming down heavily on TMC leaders who joined the BJP post the Lok Sabha elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday called them “greedy and corrupt” and said the saffron party was “collecting garbage”.
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo also said she would be replacing the “traitors” with “dedicated members” and asked those “undecided about joining the BJP” to leave her party at the earliest.
Banerjee’s remarks came in the backdrop of three MLAs and a majority of councillors from five municipalities in the state defecting to the BJP from the TMC since the declaration of general election results last month. “We are not bothered about a few corrupt and greedy leaders who are switching to some other party,” she said.
