"I am very shocked about the recent incident of violence in Assam where innocent Bengali speaking minority and tribal brothers and sisters are being brutally murdered. Why the Government of Assam and the Union Government are silent? Why no action is being taken by the statutory authorities like National Human Rights Commission, Minorities Commission, Tribal Commission etc.?"
"Some parties want to incite riots in Bengal and divide people based on religion and language. People of UP and Bihar who live in Bengal are as much part of the State as any Bengali-speaking person. We care for people irrespective of their religion, caste or creed. We will never, ever have an alliance with BJP. Congress, BJP and CPM have formed a nexus in Bengal to try and fight us."
"Some people want to divide Bengalis and non-Bengalis. They want to send Bengalis away from India. People who are living in India since 1971 are the rightful citizens of India. They are not refugees. Bengal has been insulted. Bengalis and non Bengalis have been insulted. Hindus and Muslims have been insulted. I am your protector. I will ensure you can sleep in peace at night."
