Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee continued her tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government even as she went to meet some of his cabinet colleagues.
After meeting finance minister Arun Jaitley on Monday, Banerjee went to see home minister Rajnath Singh at the latter’s place Tuesday.
With the BJP fast emerging as the biggest threat for Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, the state’s chief minister and Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee said she is ready to share a national platform with the Left parties.
Banerjee, in an interview to Headlines Today, also announced that she will resign if any evidence of her link with Sharada scam is established.
In an oblique criticism of Modi, Banerjee said, “I don’t believe in selfie-style of selfie/selfish politics.”
She was dismissive of the PM’s Swachh Bharat abhiyan: “Sanitation is an old programme, 90% of the money I am told is coming from programmes that already exist,” she said.
In West Bengal, Banerjee said the BJP will not gain anything and alleged that the hype about Modi is nothing but a media hype.
