In Mamata’s reign of terror, even Netaji kin can’t get office: Modi

Asansol, April 7 (IANS) Accusing West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of creating an atmosphere of terror, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday claimed people were so afraid that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grand nephew Chandra Kumar Bose, contesting against her on a BJP ticket in Kolkata’s Bhowanipore assembly constituency, was unable to get an office on rent.

“What have you (Banerjee) turned West Bengal to? Subhas babu’s grand nephew Chandra Kumar Bose is fighting for BJP. Didi (elder sister, as Banerjee is affectionately called) is so nervous that she has created an atmosphere of terror.

“People are so terrorised that no one is ready to rent out any house to Chandra Bose to set up his office,” Modi said at an election meeting in this industrial town – about 200 kms from Kolkata – of Burdwan district

“They say ‘if we give you a house, they’ll ruin us. We will vote for you, but as long as didi is there, we can’t give you any house on rent. Because then we won’t be alive’. Is this democracy?” he asked.

Polling in Bhowanipore will be held on in the fifth phase on April 30.
