Modi wave is propaganda by corporate entities: Buddhadeb
Kolkata, April 25: CPI(M) politburo member Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today dismissed claims of a Modi wave in the country as as "propaganda" by corporate entities. He also alleged that some media houses were trying to create a Modi wave.

"There is no Modi wave in the country. It is totally a corporate entity-led propaganda. I am surprised that corporate entities can make and unmake things," Bhattacharjee told a meet-the-press programme at the Press Club here. He alleged that some corporate houses were giving funds to some media houses to carry on a propaganda for Modi.

Asked whether a Modi wave was visible in the state, the former chief minister said, "I have visited districts and found no such wave. Only some media houses are trying to create that wave here." On whether the BJP in Bengal would draw dividends from the so called Modi wave in the country, Bhattacharjee said, "I don't think so. "The people of this state, not only a particular community, will not accept this. I have faith in the people of this state."

He also said that it was unfair to show Modi filing nomination on TV while polling was on in other parts of the country. "Attention of Election Commission has been drawn to the matter though the damage has already been done. I hope from next time such things will not be repeated," he said.

On the oft-repeated Gujarat model of development, he said, "Modi's model of development is a corporate model. We are talking about inclusive growth." Bhattacharjee charged that corporate entities and RSS had joined hands to bring Modi to power.
