West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has once again targeted PM Narendra Modi of playing “politics” over Pulwama martyrs and also ridiculed the Prime Minister for trying to depict himself as the one-man army or the lone patriot.
“As you (Modi) have done nothing in the last five years. That is why you need to show missiles, bombs and dead bodies of jawans. Don’t you feel ashamed that you are doing opportunistic politics over the dead bodies of jawans? We all stand by our armed forces, for our country, but we are not with the Modi regime,” the Trinamool Congress chief said while addressing a program in Howrah district.
“Those who are questioning the government over the outcome of the airstrikes on Jaish training camps in Balakot are branded as ‘Pakistanis’ as if we all belong to the neighbouring country and only he (Modi) is an Indian!,” she said.
Mamata Banerjee also recently sought proof of the airstrike saying that opposition parties have every right to know about the full details of the IAF operations on terror camps in Balakot.
Banerjee and the BJP have been involved in a heated exchange, with her party slamming BJP for allegedly “politicising the airstrikes on a Jaish Mohammed training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot”.
“The BJP should stop lecturing us on patriotism. We don’t need to learn it from them. We are for the country, but we are not there to support the blacklisted Modi government at the Centre. We will remove the signboards of Modi and Amit Shah from this country. Either this country will survive or they will win. The sooner this government is defeated, the better it will be for the country.” Banerjee said.
“Everyday. the BJP leaders are surfing for my religion on websites. I want to tell them my religion is humanity. They (BJP) may not have heard about it as they have blood on their hands: she said.
