Her statement came in the backdrop of repeated charges by the opposition parties that TMC was resorting to terror tactics to win the poll.
Hinting at BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh's jibe, "bhag Mamata bhag", made some time ago, she said, "Everyday if you open TV channels you will hear some opposition party members abusing me. They are coming from outside, not even born in Bengal and telling me to go out of the state."
"Such an audacity! Who are they? These are acts of provocation. Let them remain in televison channels and I will remain in the hearts of the masses," Mamata said at a massive road show in south Kolkata to drum up support for her party candidates on the last day of campaign for Kolkata municipal corporation election.
She was accompanied by TMC MP and actor Dev and several other party leaders and cine stars from Tollywood.
"They are not in the villages. They are not in the city. They are only resorting to slanderous campaign. One cann't rule Bengal sitting in Delhi," she said in an obvious reference to BJP.
"They don't have workers to put up party flags. They are taking services of publicity firms for campaigns and are blaming us that we are spreading terror. They are tearing their own flags and are blaming us for that. Even if there is a family feud in any area they are blaming us," she said.
Banerjee said provocative statements were being made by opposition party leaders to disturb the peaceful atmosphere of the state.
She said the people would give a befitting reply in the coming civic election in the state to the canard being spread and stated there should be a limit to the malicious campaign and 'provocation'.
