West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of doing politics with the natural disaster regarding the proposed meeting on cyclone Fani.
Addressing a rally at Gopiballavpur in Jhargram district, she also said she “would not share the dais with Modi” during the ongoing polls as she does not consider him as the Prime Minister of the country.
“Expiry Prime Minister is doing politics ahead of elections. He had sent a letter yesterday (Sunday) as he has a pre-planned public meeting at Jhargram. What does it mean?
“He is coming to Jhargram and his plane would land at Kalaikunda. He calls us as if we are his servant and we have to report to him. For this, he would hold a meeting which is just an eyewash and then he would say at the (public) meeting that the state did not cooperate by not attending it,” she said.
She added: “Why should I go for an official meeting when you have come to Kalaikunda for an election meeting? Had he not come for election meetings, I would have gone (for the meeting).”
She also said that Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik met Modi as the elections were over in the neighbouring state.
“I will not share dais with you during the elections time because I do not consider you as Prime Minister,” Banerjee said.
