Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief and West Bengal chief minister, Mamata Banerjee, has ruled out any tie up with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in forming government at the Centre.
Addressing an election rally in Kolkata on Saturday, she said, "This will never happen."
Ms Banerjee said, "Some Congress leaders are spreading rumours that Trinamool Congress will ally with BJP after elections. West Bengal Congress President Adhir Chowdhury had said that Trinamool will ally with NDA after elections as BJP President Rajnath Singh is promising a handsome package for the state."
The West Bengal chief minister also criticised a section of the media in the state, which she claimed, is trying to promote the BJP leader Narendra Modi and spreading canards against her party and government.
