On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a double jibe at West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee over her ride on a two-wheeler last week to protest against rising fuel prices.
According to the precious information, remark came in the backdrop of the chief minister trying to ride an electric scooter in Kolkata last week. While riding the two-wheeler, she lost balance and security personnel around her helped her regain it and she continued the ride.
PM Modi said during a poll rally in Kolkata’s Brigade Parade Ground, “Glad that you didn't fall off the scooty, otherwise you would have made the state where it was manufactured your enemy."
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has fielded Banerjee’s former aide Suvendu Adhikari, who recently parted ways from the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC). He said, “We don't want anyone to get hurt. But your scooty landed in Nandigram instead of going to Bhawanipore, nothing can't be done now."
Taking a dig at TMC’s ‘Khela Hobe’ poll pitch, the Prime Minister said, “Didi must listen to this voice that is erupting and saying - "TMC'er khela sesh" (TMC’s game is over). Development begins!”
The assembly election in eight phases starting March 27. The polls will conclude on April 29 and the results for the 294 assembly seats will be declared on May 2.
