Elections 2019: In Interview With News18, Mamata Says 'Mayawati's Vote Appeal Was From Heart, Yogi's Remark Dangerous'

Speaking to News18 Network’s editor-in-chief Rahul Joshi, Mamata Banerjee said that Election Commission is an impartial institution, and she doesn't want to question its actions. But she maintained that the two leaders, issued campaign bans by the poll body, made their statements for different reasons. The Election Commission had imposed a 72-hour campaign ban on the UP chief minister in light of his statements comparing the Lok Sabha elections to a contest between 'Ali' and ‘Bajrang Bali’. He had also referred to the Muslim League as a “green virus”, inviting the ire of the Opposition.
