Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Saturday alleged that unable to fight her politically, CPI(M) has hatched a conspiracy to eliminate her and discussed forming a suicide squad for that.
"CPI(M) and some other political parties which have vested interests-- I am not speaking about all parties--have held a meeting and hatched a conspiracy to eliminate me. Such a meeting was held, you can inquire," Banerjee told reporters in Kolkata.
She charged that at the meeting CPI(M) discussed forming a suicide squad to eliminiate her and that whatever money was required would be paid.
Banerjee claimed she had information of this and thought that West Bengal government had it too.
"CPI(M) ministers and leaders are keeping a watch on my movements. They are inquiring about my movements. A conspiracy is afoot to kill me," she alleged.
"Is it fair politics? They cannot fight us politically. They are cowards," she said.
She also alleged a suicide squad was formed by CPI(M) to eliminate Trinamool youth Congress president and MP Shubhendu Adhikari.
Asked how she knew about the suicide squads, Banerjee said "why is CPI(M) setting up so many camps of armed cadre in West Midnapore? Because they want to kill me."
