PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is insulting the Constitution by saying that she is not ready to accept him as the prime minister of the country. Addressing an election rally at Bankura, Modi said `”Didi (Banerjee) is publicly saying that she is not ready to accept the country’s PM as the head of the nation, but she feels proud in acknowleding Pakistan PM as that country’s Prime Minister.`” He said that out of anxiety of losing the general elections, the Chief Minister is insulting the Constitution.
The PM said that Banerjee had not received telephone calls when he tried to contact her in the aftermath of cyclone Fani. “She did not take calls from me during the cyclone. The Central Government wanted to sit with officers of the State to discuss the situation, but Didi not allow that too,” Modi said. Banerjee had said in a rally on May 6 that she does not accept Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of the country describing him as the “expiry PM” and that she will talk to the new prime minister after the election results. “The Chief Minister is not interested in the betterment of the State, but that of her family, nephew and tolabaj (extortionists) of her party,” the PM said. Modi said that how much the TMC supremo is worried can be understood by the language being used by her.
`”She is now talking about stones and slaps against me,” the PM said. “I am used to abuses, I have now got the ability to digest abuses from dictionaries from around the world,`” he said. The PM claimed that Banerjee has destroyed Bengal in her `”lust for power`” and now she is bent on destroying it further in the “fear” of losing power. He said that the Government of the State is being run by the TMC in name only, while the actual business is conducted by the syndicates.
He claimed that everybody - from teachers to intellectuals, businessmen to poor people - are in distress owing to the rule of extortionists in the State. “Didi’s tolabaj are not leaving poor MNREGA workers, the extortionists are even taking away their job cards,” Modi said. He said the Centre sends money so that people get food grains at low prices, but these are also being looted by the extortionists of TMC. He alleged that TMC leaders are making money from open cast coal mines, while labourers are not getting their wages..
