Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has strongly objected Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent statement that 40 TMC MLA’s are in touch with him and will switch sides after May 23. Yadav said the prime minister should be “banned for 72 years” for his “shameful” speech.
Akhilesh’s comments came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi On the campaign trail in West Bengal’s Serampore Lok Sabha seat in Hoogly district and Barrackpore constituency in North 24 Parganas, took on TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee over her prime ministerial ambitions, saying “Didi, Dilli door hai (Delhi is far away).”
‘विकास’ पूछ रहा है: प्रधान जी का शर्मनाक भाषण सुना क्या? “सवा सौ करोड़” देशवासियों का भरोसा खोकर अब वो बंगाल के 40 विधायकों के तथाकथित दल-बदल के अनैतिक भरोसे तक सिमट गये हैं. ये वो नहीं काले धन की मानसिकता बोल रही है.
इसके लिए उन पर 72 घंटे नहीं बल्कि 72 साल का बैन लगना चाहिए. pic.twitter.com/H504UdfWGo

“Didi, even your MLAs will desert you when the results of this election are out. Your 40 MLAs are in touch with me and all your MLAs will desert you once the BJP wins the election. Political ground has slipped from under your feet,” Modi said.
“Vikas (development) is asking… Did you hear the shameful speech of Pradhanji (PM)? After losing the faith of 125 crore countrymen, he (Modi) is now relying on the unethical assurance of defection allegedly given by the 40 MLAs,” he tweeted.
“This reflects his (Modi) black money mentality. He should be banned for not 72 hours but for 72 years,” he said.
