We'll decide PM's name after victory: Mamata
TMC chief hosts 22 parties’ heads in Kolkata
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday that the Narendra Modi government is surviving on borrowed time.
Addressing the mega United India rally that reached a different height due to the presence of 22 national leaders opposing the BJP with lakhs of party workers supporting the cause, a beaming Banerjee said: "The expiry date of the government is here and it is on its way out."
She also emphasised: "Don't have to worry about who will be the Prime Minister. It's not the right time for that question. We will fix it after the polls."
Criticising Narendra Modi, she said: "He (Modi) says all are corrupt. He is the only honest and the rest all are corrupt." Putting 'corruption' into perspective Mamata added: "How do they (BJP) get so much money? They have built a party office like a shopping mall."
Coming down heavily on the BJP, she said: "BJP has spoken against Soniaji, Mayawatiji, Akhilesh and even I was not spared. They will not be spared if thrown out of power."
Banerjee alleged that the BJP cannot respect their own leaders. "Do they respect L K Advaniji or Murli Manohar Joshiji? Even Rajnathji and Sushma Swarajji are not respected." She said when elections are around the corner, the BJP speaks about collective leadership.
"Wherever the BJP convenes a meeting, our party workers will hold a meeting the next day and give a befitting reply to their lies politically," she said. She reiterated that the Bengal government is paying crop insurance to the farmers but the BJP is circulating the photograph of Narendra Modi to tell the people as if it is a Centre-sponsored project.
