The war of words between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have reached a crescendo during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. In her latest jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee questioned him as to why he has not built even one Ram temple but is busy chanting “Jai Shri Ram”.
Modi has called Mamata speed breaker Didi, while Mamata returned the compliment calling him Expiry PM.
“You BJP babu, you say ‘Jai Shri Ram’ but have you built even one Ram temple? At the time of elections, Ram Chandra becomes your party agent, you say ‘Ram Chandra is my election agent’. You say ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and force others to say it,” Mamata said while addressing a public rally in Bishnupur . This comes after Modi hailed Lord Ram with the chant at his Jhargram rally and dared Banerjee to have him arrested.
Modi was referring to a recent incident that went viral on social media where three people were reportedly arrested for allegedly chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ when the chief minister’s convoy was passing by. “Didi has thrown people into jail for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. I thought of greeting her with the chant so she can throw me behind bars, too. I will then serve the innocent people who are in jail for chanting in praise of Lord Ram,” the prime minister said.
