Cancel PM Modi's candidature: Mamata
KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee alleged that Narendra Modi had flouted the Indian Constitution with his statements that 40 Trinamool MLAs are in touch with him and at the same breath said no MLA would join his party. She further added that on the grounds of horse trading, his candidature should be cancelled.
"Yesterday he (Modi) said 40 of my MLAs are in touch with him. This will fall under the anti-defection law. He is saying unconstitutional things while holding a constitutional position. Doesn't he have any shame? He is violating the Constitution and has no right to be the Prime Minister," Banerjee said at an election rally in Bhadreshwar on Tuesday.
