“Didi’s Poribortan is not for good governance or development. It is for anarchy, booth capturing and encouragement to illegal infiltration,” BJP leader Arun Jaitley said in Campaign Diary.
Mamata rode to power trouncing Left Front’s 34-year rule promising Poribartan in the state. “Conventional wisdom would suggest that Mamata Banerjee’s and her party’s traditional rival in West Bengal are the Left parties. The Congress party would occupy the third spot with the BJP being an also-ran. Why then is the BJP the principal target of Didi’s attack?” he asked.
“Every day she crosses the Laxman rekha and uses the choicest adjectives against Narendra Modi,” Jaitley wrote in his blog. There were war of words between Mamata and Modi after the latter said in Asansol that Bangladeshi infiltrators who were allowed into the country for votebank politics would be sent back, while refugees thrown out of Bangladesh on religious grounds would be greeted with open arms.
