Congratulating people in Karnataka for their mandate in favour of change, the fiery TMC supremo also saids “brute authoritarian and majoritarian” politics has been vanquished. ”My salutations to the people of Karnataka for their decisive mandate in favour of change!! Brute authoritarian and majoritarian politics is vanquished!! “When people want plurality and democratic forces to win, no central design to dominate can repress their spontaneity : that is the moral of the story, lesson for tomorrow,” Banerjee tweeted.
