Mamata Banerjee Belongs to Syndicate Culture Says PM Narendra Modi

Criticising West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for “threatening” the Election Commission, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday (April 17) said she was busy fighting with the poll panel instead of taking on political parties as she and her party TMC had already conceded defeat. “On the brink of defeat, Trinamool Congress has lost its senses. Mamata and her party have accepted defeat and so she is not fighting the political parties but she is fighting with the Election Commission,” Modi told a rally in Krishnanagar, West Bengal, referring to the row over EC issuing a notice to Banerjee over poll code violation. The Prime Minister said that elections would come and go, but the institutions will stay. “Didi, Election Commission is an independent body. It has recognition throughout the world. The way players obey umpires in a game, it is the duty of political parties to respect the Commission.” “After EC’s showcause notice, your duty was to meet them and place your point of view, but you said I will see after 19th May (counting day),” Modi said, adding that she should have seen poverty and hardships of the people instead. “It would not have been necessary to threaten the Election Commission,” he said, adding that the TMC had conceded defeat. Modi said that if she refused to respect EC, then she has to come clean on whether she has faith in the Constitution and democracy. Speaking on a report that state chief secretary Basudeb Banerjee had sent a reply to the Commission on its showcause to Banerjee, Modi said, “I heard that chief secretary has given the reply. The Commission did not issue showcause to her as chief minister, it was issued to her as a TMC leader.
