As the war of words continue between Mamata Banerjee and Narendra Modi, the West Bengal Chief Minister on Wednesday called the Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate a “donkey”.
Taking on the Gujarat Chief Minister over his comments on Bangladeshi infiltraors, the Trinamool Congress supremo mocked at the BJP strongman by calling him a donkey and said he doesn’t knows anything about the facts.
Mamata’s reaction came after, the BJP’s PM candidate, who addressed three rallies in West Bengal on Wednesday said that she got angry with him for raising the issue of Bangladeshi infiltrators which she herself had raised in 2005.
The West Bengal CM also attacked Modi at three rallies at minority-dominated Budge Budge, Metiabruz and at Chowrashtra in Behala.
“People of Bengal were being dubbed as refugees and shamed. Some people were being called infiltrators. If they try to divide Bengal, if they try to evict anyone, I will guard you. I will not let anyone touch you. He said I respect refugees. Who is a refugee? Does he understand what it means?” she said.
On Modi’s charge that she had raised the issue of infiltrators in 2005, Banerjee said “I had raised the issue of bogus ration cards in Bengal.”
