New Delhi, Apr 28: Launching a scathing attack on Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, BJP today said her comments against Narendra Modi showed she has lost her “mental balance” and was increasingly getting worried about the Modi wave in her state.
Party’s in-charge of West Bengal Sidharth Nath Singh said her comments that the country will be “ruined” and plunge into darkness if Modi comes to power was also a reflection of the fact that TMC has “lost the plot” in the state.
“Modi wave has hit her hard and she has lost her mental balance. She is seeing that TMC has lost the plot and therefore she is pushing her communal agenda as her government is suffering from any development work. She was barking at a wrong tree,” Singh said in a statement.
He said West Bengal Chief Minister was “shaken” and “shattered” after Modi’s rally at Srerampur where he warned of strict action in the Saradha scam issue after formation of government at the Centre.
Singh alleged that her “cosy” relationship with Saradha group owner was well established and hence a “casual investigation” was being carried out by the government there.
“Her painting fetching M F Hussain price is well known and has been in media for almost a year,” he said.
Sarcastically admiring her talent in painting, Modi had also said in the rally that, “Your paintings used to be sold for Rs four lakh, Rs 8 lakh or Rs 15 lakh, but what is the reason that one of your paintings sold for Rs 1.80 crore. I respect art. But who was the person who bought the painting for Rs 1.80 crore”.
Singh also hit out at TMC spokesperson Derek O Brian over his “butcher of Gujarat” remark, saying he should at least respect the institutions he went for learning.
“Unfortunate his language is of an uneducated person. The more he opens his mouth, he harms his party’s prospects, something we will not like to stop,” he said.
