After widespread criticism of her remarks that she wanted to beat up the PM, Banerjee today backtracked and blamed the media for doctoring her remarks.
“What I said is that ‘I had have met the PM 10 times on the issue of fertiliser price hike. I cannot do more than this. Shall I go and beat (him up)?’ A section of media is saying I have said I will beat PM, this is totally distorted,” she said.
Bhuiyan slammed Banerjee for her government’s decision to promote chit funds in the state which had adversely impacted small savings, thereby reducing its borrowing capacity.
