Modi’s Asansol speech video sent to EC: Official

Kolkata, April 9 (IANS) The Election Commission is examining a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in West Bengal’s Asansol where he had launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her Trinamool Congress, an official said on Saturday.

In a no-holds-barred attack, Modi had said Banerjee “adjusted to corruption” and claimed that her party — whose abbreviation is TMC — stood for “terror, maut (death) and corruption”.

“We have sent a CD of the prime minister’s speech as well as Banerjee’s speech to the Commission,” additional chief electoral officer Dibyendu Sarkar told the media here.

On Friday, a day after Modi’s speech, Banerjee said his comments do not behove the office he holds and termed his BJP “Bhayanak Jali Party (dangerously fraud party)” while daring him to arrest her.
