It would be a disaster, if Narendra Modi becomes the next prime minister, CPI(M) politburo member Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Tuesday said, alleging that the RSS wants only Hindus to stay in the country.
"Don't believe Narendra Modi. There will be disaster," Bhattacharjee said at a rally in Baruipur .
"RSS says only Hindus will stay in India...we say it will bring great danger. Have the Hindus gone mad that they will bring Modi?" he said while referring to Modi's statement that he would send back illegal Bangladeshi immigrants after the election results.
Training his guns on Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, the former West Bengal chief minister said that initially Banerjee was not talking against Modi, but of late she started speaking out against him.
"We don't believe her...She had sent flowers to Modi. Has she ever acknowledged that it was wrong?" he asked.
The CPI(M) leader, whose party had thrown outside support to the Congress-led UPA I government, also alleged that the Trinamool Congress had been with the Congress-led UPA II government and supported decontrol of fuel prices.
He also accused the TMC supremo of flying to meeting venues, wondering "who is paying for her helicopter rides."
"We are going by road or taking train rides to venues. We don't have so much money. We don't touch ill-gotten money," Bhattacharjee claimed.
Observing that neither the Congress nor BJP should be voted to power in the 16th Lok Sabha, Bhattacharjee said 11 parties had been brought together on a single platform, which can run a government for the people.
