Mamata Banerjee dares Amit Shah: Take on Didi later, fight nephew first.

Hitting back at Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the BJP for accusing her of dynasty politics and preferential treatment towards her ‘bhaipo’ (nephew), Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday challenged Shah to first contest against her nephew Abhishek Banerjee before thinking of fighting her.

Addressing a party rally in Pailan in the South 24 Parganas district, TMC chief Banerjee said (her nephew) Abhishek could have taken the “easy route of being an MP by choosing to be a Rajya Sabha member but he fought the Lok Sabha election and got the people’s mandate”.

“Day and night, they are talking about Didi-Bhatija. I challenge Amit Shah, contest against Abhishek Banerjee first and then me,” she said.
