“Recently a movie called Manikarnika was released… We are reminded of Queen of Jhansi… Who was Rani Jhansi? She was an ordinary woman whom people chose that she should guard Jhansi,” he said. 

“In Bengal also there is Rani Jhansi whose name is Mamata Banerjee. Mamata Banerjee said that ‘sar kata sakte haen lekin sar jhuka sakte nahin’ (we are ready to be beheaded but will not kowtow).

Against the backdrop of the standoff between the Centre and the West Bengal government on the CBI issue, he alleged that the central government was trying to frighten the TMC to toe its line 

“What happened in Bengal a few days back was done by the British government,” he explained. 

“During British time what did the Britishers do? They used to scare you, threaten you. They used to enter your house and tell you to support them or else they would attack you. Today the condition is the same,” he said.
