Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told a private Bengali television channel on Friday evening that a group of people have hatched a plan to assassinate her and that supari killers (professional assassins) have been hired for the job.
The chief minister also said that she has prepared a political will that mentions names of leaders who will take charge of her party, the Trinamool Congress, in her absence.
“The killers have even made a recce of my home at Kalighat. I came to know of this because I am part of the administration. The police asked me several times to shift to a safer location but I refused. I am not scared of dying. If I live behind security cover I will start distancing myself from the people,” said Banerjee.
“Nothing will happen to my party if I die. I have written down the names of those who will run the party in my absence. Everything is sorted,” said the Chief Minister.
