(Sacrifice stands for Hindu, faith stands for Muslim, love stands for Christian, Sikh stands for sacrifice. This is our beloved India. We will protect this country. Those who will fight with us will be broken into pieces. This is our slogan.)

Earlier in the week, the BJP and Trinamool engaged in postcard war. A day before, Trinamool workers sent postcards written 'Jai Hind, Jai Bangla and Vande Mataram' to Prime Minister's New Delhi residence in retaliation to the 10 lakh 'Jai Shri Ram' posters sent by the BJP to West Bengal Chief Minister.  

In the race up to the Assembly elections in the state, the postcard saga began with violence reported at Kanchrapada in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district on Saturday after the TMC leaders were greeted with 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans by BJP supporters.

Referring to the poll violence that unleashed in the state throughout the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, Banerjee had accused the BJP of instigating the same, along with that blamed them for disseminating fake news.  

She said, "BJP spreading fake news in the entire country that in Bengal things are not cool. Violence is at its peak in Bengal. No constitution in Bengal. They are spreading these fake news. They insulting Bengal in front of the country." 

Despite the resistance of a territorial Mamata Banerjee, the saffron party managed to make inroads in the state and won 18 out of state's 42 Lok Sabha seats, while the ruling Trinamool won 22 seats.
