Your slap will be a blessing for me: PM Modi hits back at Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata : Back in Bengal for the Lok Sabha Election campaigns, PM Narendra Modi on Thursday slammed CM Mamata Banerjee for her governance in the state. He also replied to Banerjee's comment stating that she feels "like giving him a slap of democracy".
"I have been told that Didi said she wanted to slap Modi. Mamata Didi, I call you Didi and will continue to keep doing so. Your slap will be a blessing for me,” PM Modi said at an election rally in Bengal’s Purulia.
But, he also said that if CM Mamata Banerjee had slapped her colleagues at the time of chit fund scam then for sure she did not had to worry about losing in the Lok Sabha Election 2019.
“If you had slapped the Tolabaz (extortionists), then the TTT or Trinamool Tolabazi Tax tag wouldn’t have stained your record,” he said.
The BJP and Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress has been locked in a no-holds-barred contest for 17 of Bengal’s 42 Lok Sabha seats that are to vote on May 12 and 19.
The counting of votes will be done on May 23.
