In a stinging attack on the Prime Minister, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said his ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio programme was a “misuse” of the government machinery as it has now become ‘Modi ki Baat’. “Modiji, you have finished India’s economy and growth. We don’t trust you or your mismatched wrong technology which you are advertising for. We want technology and progress. But no section of society is to be left out and tortured while doing this (demonetisation),” Banerjee said in a statement.

Observing that “‘Mann ki Baat’ has now become ‘Modi ki Baat’, she said the Prime Minister was “misusing government machinery. Instead of finding solutions to the suffering and pain of millions of people, he is doing personal vendetta, personal publicity and business.” “The women of our country will give you a befitting reply. They are the mothers of India. They are the mothers of all, Mr Today’s PM,” the Trinamool Congress chief said.

In his ‘Mann ki Baat’ address on Sunday, the Prime Minister warned unscrupulous elements not to play with the lives of the poor by depositing illegal money into their accounts as stringent law against ‘benami’ transactions were in place to deal with them.

          Bengal was a jewel during 1950s. Bengal is now ranked along with Bihar as the ultra bimaru state of India. Thanks to commies and then Didi who showed that she can be a shade darker than red. Didi excelled in chasing out industry from Bengal. Naturally job creation has dipped. Bengal is now supplying all unskilled uneducated labour force of maids, Aayas and security guards, safari karamcharis to all over India. Let her enjoy a state full of unemplo youth.

                        Mamata should put her track record in Bengal on display before talking on any ones behalf! Modi has hisbtrack record in Gujarat for every one to see.

                                    Bangalis have filthy mentality. They love being poor. They love being dirty. They love corrupt Mamata. They hate industrialist. They hate Modi. They hate themselves.

                                      Are you dreaming? Mamata is an anti-national politician. Lost tons of Black Money, hence the pain.

                                        Mamata never showed any enthusiasm for ping the GST bill, and now is going on an overdrive against demonetization in the name of common people. It is very obvious that there is something very fishy, about her and her party's finances.
