Kolkata: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Friday launched brutal attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale fighter jet deal controversy saying a chai wal has now become Rafale wala.
“During the election, he (PM) becomes ‘Chaiwala’, after the election he becomes ‘Rafale wala’,” Banerjee told the media on Friday.
She was quoted as saying by the media: “He is a master of Rafale. He is a master of demonetisation… He is a master of corruption. He is matter of arrogance.”
Modi too attacked the TMC-led government at his rally in West Bengal.
“She has made violence political culture of Bengal. The government is of Didi but the real decisions are taken by goons and middlemen.”
“Didi is anxious to get to Delhi, while the poor of Bengal are left to deal with the Syndicate,” he said, exhorting the masses to end the ‘era of violence in Bengal.
Trying to connect with the masses, the PM said he hold a special relationship with Bengal.
“I have a special relationship with North Bengal. The relationship of tea. You grow tea, I used to make tea,” he told a rally today.
