"We unlike BJP don't believe in 'adda' sitting at a tea shop only during election time. Votes are being sought for BJP by showing tea," Banerjee said in Durgapur.

Addressing her party workers, she said the TMC’s fight was against BJP, Congress and CPI (M) in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
"BJP, Congress, CPI (M) - our fight is against the three. Keep this in mind. We had created the Trinamool Congress against the misrule of the Congress," she said.

Banerjee claimed that unlike BJP, her party was always close to the people.

“I think that instead of sitting in a concrete jungle, it is better to be on the streets because one can get information about the people,” she said.
Banerjee said she wanted to see her party at the national level because the challenge for her was to restore the pride of Bengal outside the state.

She, however, added, "I am not going anywhere from Bengal."
"We will have to fight and win against the CPI (M), Congress and BJP. We want Delhi and all other states to take pride in us," Banerjee said.

The TMC supremo said that her party was also targeting states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Assam.
Banerjee said she would go to Delhi on February 18 and then tour Tripura and Assam on February 25 and 26 respectively.
