West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee once again on Monday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi about how many more lives would be lost in the country in the wake of the demonetisation move.
“How many more lives will be lost for Modi babu?” Banerjee said on a social media website while retweeting a post by Trinamool Congress spokesperson Derek O’Brien.
Earlier, TMC national spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien had tweeted a list of 95 people who he said had died while standing either in queues at banks or ATMs or allegedly committed suicide due to cash crunch after demonetisation.
On the other hand, tearing into West Bengal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Dilip Ghosh for his remark on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Monday said the former has stooped to a ‘new low’ of politics.
“The BJP are desperate to silence the voice of opposition. So, they are indulging in cheap low level politics. This is a new low in politics,” said O’Brien. He further said that Ghosh has spewed deeply dangerous, threatening, abusive and completely false personal allegation against Mamata.
“The BJP cannot fight Mamata on policy, good governance and principle and her stand on demonetizationon behalf of millions of people who have been affected by the government’s policy,” he said.
Ghosh on Sunday said that TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee, has lost her mind after the demonetization drive and that was why she recently visited Delhi and Patna.
“During the last elections also, she had said she would tie Prime Minister Modi with a rope. When she was staging protests in Delhi, if we wanted we could have thrown her out of Delhi by grabbing her hair as we have our police deployed there, but we didn’t do so. How can a Chief Minister use such words for the prime minister, it’s not right,” he said.
