An unfazed Banerjee, however, dared the Commission and said, “Do whatever you like”.
“I heard that Election Commission has showcaused me. What I have said I will say it again, I will say it thousand times. I will say it a lakh times. Do whatever you like. If anyone spread canards against me I will seek answers,” she said during an election meeting in Birbhum district.
Mamata Banerjee, reacting to the notice, said that the people of Bengal will 'showcause' the Election Commission on May 19 for issuing a notice against her on Bengali New Year.
