Referring to West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, PM Narendra Modi at a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Mau, said, “I am going to West Bengal for a rally in Dum Dum. Let us see if Didi allows it. If she has her way she will not allow the helicopter to land.”
He also promised to build a new Vidyasagar statue and blamed “Trinamool goons” for vandalising it. His remarks came two days after clashes broke out at BJP chief Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata.
On the other hand, the opposition has attacked the Election Commission for its decision to cut short poll campaign in Bengal after violence at Amit Shah’s Kolkata rally.
They alleged that the poll body’s decision to cut short campaigning in Bengal will favour Narendra Modi big time. Javadekar responding to all these allegations, pointed out that Mamata Benarjee also has rallies on Thursday and there is no point in blaming the EC and Modi over the decision that was made.
