Modi, Mamata go after each other in West Bengal

THE TIMES OF INDIA, Tamluk/Jhargarm
Modi, Mamata go after each other 
in West Bengal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday accused West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee of doing “cheap politics” over cyclone Fani, claiming she did not speak to him when he tried to contact her to talk about the calamity.

He alleged his efforts to talk to state government officials to take stock of the situation too was “scuttled” by Banerjee.

Modi also accused Banerjee of “religious intolerance”, and said people were being arrested for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. He dared the chief minister to have him arrested for the chant hailing the Lord.  “Today, I am back from Odisha after reviewing the situation in the aftermath of the cyclone. I had called ‘Didi’ twice to discuss the issue with her. I waited for her to call back, but she did not respond.

“She is so arrogant that she did not speak to me. ‘Speedbreaker’ Didi is more interested in doing cheap politics instead of tackling the situation,” Modi told election rallies in Tamluk and Jhargram.  Cyclone Fani left a trail of death and destruction in Odisha and also hit parts of West Bengal.

Modi said even today he wanted to speak to Banerjee and state officials to take stock of the situation but the chief minister did not allow that to happen.  Banerjee responded to the prime minister’s criticism, saying she could not talk to him because she was camping in Kharagpur to monitor the situation as the cyclone advanced towards West Bengal.

Addressing an election rally in Gopiballavpur sub-division of Jhargram, Banerjee said Modi had indeed called her for a meeting at Kalaikunda, where he landed for an election meeting after touring cyclone-battered Odisha.
