Bengal Polls: We don't want BJP, Modi, Duryodhan in Bengal, says Mamata
Kolkata, Mar 19: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi with villainous mythological and historical characters.
Speaking at a rally in East Midnapore district, Mamata said "Bid farewell to BJP, we don't want BJP. We don't want to see Modi's face. We don't want riots, looters, Duryodhan, Dushasana, Mir Jafar."
"I wouldn't have been able to come here. Today I am free to come anywhere in Midnapore. Earlier I used to ask where should I go? I gave them blind love and they betrayed me. They were in touch with BJP since 2014. I am sorry I trusted them," she said.
"Modi uses a teleprompter and says Kemon Aacho Bangla (How are you Bangla)? We say Bangla bhalo aachey (Bengal is good). Poriborton is my slogan. Why will you steal my slogan, you copycat? Khela Hobe," she said.
"I have injuries on every part of my body. Elections are near. So they thought they will injure my legs," alleged the Chief Minister.
Mamata Banerjee is pitted against her former lieutenant Suvendu Adhikari, who joined the BJP in December.
