A day after violence marked BJP chief Amit Shah's roadshow in Kolkata, Union minister Narendra Tomar Wednesday alleged that Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee was trying to trample her political opponents, sensing her defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.
"The base of Trinamool Congress is violence and it is heading for a defeat in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. She is totally flustered and that is why she is throwing the Constitution, law and protocol to the wind and trying to trample her opponents," Tomar told reporters here.
"I strongly condemn the act of instigating the riot to stop the BJP chief's roadshow," he said, adding that Banerjee should remember that his party has come out stronger whenever it was oppressed.
He said the TMC would lose badly and the BJP would come to power with a huge mandate on May 23.
"It is unfortunate for WB that earlier the Communist parties had resorted to dictatorship there," he added.
"The country has already decided that it does not need a tainted person, but strong Modi as the PM," he said.
