Kolkata: Stung by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revealation of her sweet rapport with him at the personal level Trinamul Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Friday declared that West Bengal would gift him clay-made “rasgullas” filled with gravel instead of votes this time in the Lok Sabha Election. The West Bengal chief minister claimed that if Mr Modi would end up breaking his teeth if he would try to have a bite of it.

Her attack on the PM came a day after she acknowledged of sending Kurta and sweets as a “courtsey” to him. “Mr Modi is not coming to power this time. He now fears of visiting any place. He frequents Bengal which he did not do earlier. He did not come here during any season. But when the poll season has come, he says he wants votes from Bengal. Bengal will give you Rosogolla now,” Ms Banerjee alleged at an election campaign rally in Raniganj in support of Trinamul candidate of Asansol Moon Moon Sen.

 

She angrily told Mr Modi, “What will be the rasgulla type? It will not be an regular one. We will make the sweet with clay and fill it with gravel exactly the way cashew nuts and raisins are put in Laddoos so that when he will try to have a bite, his teeth will break. This type of sweet will be served to him.” Before concluding her speech Ms Banerjee asked the women in the crowd, “Have you cooked food at home before coming here? Cook some food and sweets to beat the BJP.”

She added, “Those will be the sweets made of clay and will be filled with gravel which will be given to them.”

On Thursday the Trinamul chief however said, “Modi Babu said in an interview as if I send him Kurta. What is the fault if it is sent? We send something or the other to all on the occasion of Durga Puja. I send gifts not only to Mr Modi but also to many others who hold important positions. The difference is they reveal it but I do not because this is not our culture. He only revealed his name but I can take 100 names.”

 

Slamming Mr Modi she claimed, “But we never disclose it. It is courtsey. Courtsey and politics are different. Image can not be built by such type of politics and marketing even of courtsey. Just imagine how much we treat you gently. Still you threat me daily.”
