I would have sent Modi to jail had I been in Delhi: Mamata

Berhampore (WB), May 9: Mamata Banerjee today attacked the Congress alleging it was 'cocooned in fear' and did not have the guts to act against the BJP and said had she been in Delhi she would have sent Narendra Modi to jail.

"They (Congress) have no guts. It is a party cocooned in fear. They survive through understanding and play got-up matches and indulge in match-fixing. Not a single word against Narendra Modi. It (Congress) is in head over heels in love with Narendra Modi," Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress chief, told an election rally here in Murshidabad district.

"Had I been in Delhi in place of Congress, I would have sent Narendra Modi to jail by tying a rope around his waist," she said hitting out again at the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate for his remark that illegal Bangladeshi immigrants would be sent packing after May 16.

"Had the Congress party initially exerted pressure on BJP, it would not have dared to talk so much now," Banerjee, the Chief Minister, said. Stating that an impression was being created that Modi had already become the PM, she said, "Before the birth of the child, the date of marriage that is of Modibabu, is fixed and also who would bride and bridegroom.

"It is due to the abetment of Congress and the CPI(M) The Congress will form the bridegroom's retinue while the RSP will follow the bride," she said.
