Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee continues her attack on Narendra Modi. This time she compared him with Duryodhana, the main villain of the epic Mahabharat. On Sunday, at a rally in South 24 Parganas district’s Basanti, around 110 km from state capital Kolkata, the Trinamool Congress chief said, “Duryodhan and Dushasan didn’t lie as much as Modi has.” Earlier, she had also compared BJP chief Amit Shah to Dushshasan, the younger brother of Duryodhana.
She also made use of the chance accusing Modi of being “busy with his own publicity” and said she would “ensure he vacates Delhi’s chair”.
She had compared Modi and BJP President Amit Shah to Duryodhana and Dushasan who had fought against the Pandavas, at a rally in Barjora last week. “The Duryodhana-Dushasan duo is running the show at the Centre,” the CM said. She had also made remarks against Modi saying “Modi needs a slap of democracy for saying that Mamata’s party is of tolabaaz (extortionists),” she had said, further calling him a “lying PM”.
The 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal have generated a huge clash between Ms Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress and the BJP, which has been set a target of 23 seats by party chief Amit Shah. Over the last weeks, PM Modi and Shah, along with the party’s other star campaigner Yogi Adityanath, have held around a dozen rallies in the state, going toe-to-toe with the chief minister.
