Kandi/Asansol (WB), Apr 9, 2016, (PTI): Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his ‘Terror, Maut and Corruption’ comments, terming BJP as ‘Bhayanak Jaali Party’ and dared him to arrest her.
A day after Modi said TMC stood for “terror, maut (death) and corruption” and accused the West Bengal Chief Minister of compromising with graft, Mamata last night got back by asking whether she could also dub BJP as ‘Bhayanak Jaali Party’.
She said whenever the prime minister comes to Bengal, he makes personal attacks but she won’t do the same.
“It doesn’t behove a prime minister to make such utterances,” she said.
“I can also say BJP is ‘Bhayanak Jaali Party’ (dreaded fraud party) but I withdraw my words,” she said at the rally in Asansol where Modi had addressed the election meeting just a day before.
Addressing another election campaign today at Kandi in Murshidabad district, Mamata said, “The prime minister lies every now and then. Let him put me behind bars. Even then I shall bounce back in the polls with massive mandate.”
She expressed confidence of bouncing back with a massive mandate in the polls even from jail.
During his election rallies in West Bengal, the Prime Minister had launched a tirade against Mamata and accused her of adjusting with corruption and misleading people with slogans for change.
“Narada sting operation against Trinamool Congress leaders was shown in TV. It was such big scandal but did Didi take any step against them or expelled them from the party. Didi has adjusted with corruption.”
Mamata also criticised CPI(M) and Congress, who have forged an alliance in the state to defeat her party in the ongoing assembly poll.
Mocking the alliance, she said it was a fight for survival for both the constituents.
Firing a salvo against Congress in WBPCC President Adhir Chowdhury’s bastion in Murshidabad district, she said “Congress has no power to fight on its own and is suffering from identity crisis. Thus it needs to take CPI(M) along to cross the bridge.
“CPI(M) is also known to people through various misdeeds during its 34-year-long rule. Both the parties (Congress and CPI-M) are shameless lie… They do not work,” she said and urged people to throw them out.
She listed the development projects in Murshidabad and urged the people to have faith in here government for many more of them.
