Modi is a devil and he wants to divide Hindus and Muslims in Kolkata: Mamata

Reacting to Modi’s charge of misgovernance, she said, “We do not need gyaan on development from the architect of riots.

A day after Narendra Modi targeted her, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday called the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate “a devil” and the “architect of riots”. She said “the nation will plunge into darkness” if Modi becomes the prime minister.

“Modi is a devil. He has presided over riots in his own state and has turned his attention to Bengal… He wants to divide Hindus and Muslims in the state,” she said in a statement put up on the Trinamool Congress website.

Reacting to Modi’s charge of misgovernance, she said, “We do not need gyaan on development from the architect of riots. He has no right to be in politics.”

On Modi’s allegation that she was ignoring non-Bengalis and welcoming Bangladeshis, Mamata said, “Everyone is our brother and sister, whether they belong to Gujarat or Bihar. We do not discriminate between people… We don’t do casteism and dirty politics.

“Bangla is the fifth most widely spoken language in the world. Elsewhere in India, people who speak Bangla are branded Bangladeshis… Bangladeshis who migrated to India followed the 1971 Indira-Mujib agreement (are)… legal immigrants.”

The Election Commission has asked for the CD and transcript of Modi’s speech in West Bengal on Sunday. The TMC’s Mukul Roy had complained against Modi for claiming that one of Mamata’s paintings was sold for “Rs 1.80 crore” and raising doubts about the buyer.

        Mr.Modi made a comment on corruption and misgovernance.. how did riots and butcher enter this ? I will tell you why. Because this Bengal govt. doesnot have a counter narrative on development or governance. I dont see any disimmilarity between the last bengal regime and now..it will still be a development laggard in the years to come.

              Mamata is half-literate, soft in the head and egomaniacal. The fact that such a person was elected to power in Bengal is an insult to the intelligence of Bengalis. In her rule Bengal will become a wasteland and the people will have to migrate more and more to other states in search of employment.

                          Mamataji, the divide was started in Bengal and in kolkata. So why blame Modi over it now. Let us accept the fact of parion and then think what we should mould our country as. First every citizen should think of himself as Indian and the religious divide should not be brought into society affairs. It should confined to four walls and be a personal aspect. So stop all these Natak of religious divisons and concentrate on Nation building and development for all round prosperity.

                                  BJP should raise issues of Chit fund scam, Law & Order (there were many rape cases), poor healthcare (many patients died) & vote bank politics and expose TMC
