Prime Minister Narendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took swipes at one another at simultaneous election rallies in Bengal at present. PM Modi added a twist to Ms Banerjee’s “khela hobe (game on)” dig at him – he stated it is “khela sesh (game over) if players keep criticising umpires”, alluding to the Trinamool’s repeated criticism of the Election Commission.
Ms Banerjee, campaigning at North 24 Parganas district, simply 58 km from Tarkeshwar, the place PM Modi was giving an election speech, attacked the BJP utilizing the Trinamool’s major weapon – that of calling the BJP a celebration of “outsiders” in Bengal.
“BJP wants to divide Bengal… These people want to end Bengal, its language, its culture,” Ms Banerjee, on a wheelchair nursing her plastered leg, stated. “I request to all the minority brothers and sisters not to allow their vote division,” she stated.
PM Modi used his Lok Sabha constituency, Varanasi, to make the Trinamool’s “outsider” remark at BJP ricochet again to Ms Banerjee’s celebration.
“Didi is now looking for a place outside. Welcome to Varanasi. There is a ship that goes from Haldia to Varanasi. One more thing, the people of my Benaras, they are so large hearted they won’t call you a tourist or outsider. They are as large hearted as the people of Bengal,” the Prime Minister stated.
“In Varanasi, you will find a lot of people with tilak, saying Jai Shri Ram. Didi, then what will happen to you? Who will you be angry with?” the Prime Minister stated.
The third of the eight-phase election in Bengal can be held on April 6. Voting in Nandigram, from the place Ms Banerjee is contesting, was held within the second part on Thursday.
PM Modi has been taking a whirlwind tour of Bengal so as to add energy to the BJP’s marketing campaign in its bid to dislodge the federal government run by Ms Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress for 10 years.
“Didi says people take money to attend BJP rallies. Didi, Bengalis are self-respecting people. Didi, you have insulted the people of Bengal with this statement. Did anyone come here today for money?” PM Modi stated in Hooghly at present.
“A major reason for Didi’s bewilderment is her report card of 10 years. Old industries have been shut down. Possibilities of new industries, new investment, new business and employment have also been closed down,” the Prime Minister stated.
