We do not support politics over development. We do not believe in fear tactics. We want to work for the people,” Mamata said while campaigning for the upcoming Assembly elections here.

“I came here during landslide and earthquake. You are very close to my heart. I love the people of the hills. I say the same thing in the hills and in the plains. I don’t say fake things. I want development for the hills,” she added.

Expressing confidence of emerging victorious in the assembly polls, Mamata said the TMC is not scared of any conspiracy.

“There is a voice in bring the TMC. No one else will win the election. We are not scared of any conspiracy. Some people do not want me to come to the hills. Who are they to stop me? This is my motherland,” she said.
