Demonetization means ‘complete demolition’ of economy, only benefits ‘Modi babu’: Mamata Banerjee

Written by | December 11, 2016 | 0

Continuing to hit out at the BJP over demonetization, Banerjee claimed that the ‘most corrupt people were talking about removing corruption’. She also claimed that demonetization meant ‘complete demolition of the Indian economy’.

The TMC supremo wrote on Twitter: “The most corrupt people are talking about removing corruption. #Demonetization done only to help Modi babu and his close associates. Demonetization has meant complete demolition of the Indian economy. The arrogant and destructive attitude of this govt. is trying to destroy the world’s largest democracy.”

The war of words between TMC and BJP over Mamata Banerjee’s hard stance against demonetization escalated on Sunday. BJP West Bengal President Dilip Ghosh had earlier claimed that Mamata Banerjee had ‘lost her mind’ because she lost ‘hundreds of crores’ due to demonetization. Continuing the attack, he told on Sunday:

“Jab woh Delhi mei natak kar rahi thi,hum chahte to unka baal pakad ke nikal sakte the;hamari Police hai wahan. Par hum aisa nahi karte. Ek CM iss tarah ke shabd PM ke liye istemal karti hain vo theek nahi hai.” (When Mamata was protesting Delhi, we could’ve dragged her by the hair, the Delhi police is ours. But we didn’t do it. A CM speaking like that about the PM is not right.)

Hitting out at Ghosh’s comments, TMC’s Derek O’Brien said: “New low in politics, 3rd class politics; made dangerous, threatening, false & personal allegations against Mamata Banerjee.” Earlier, Ghosh had said Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has lost her mind after the demonetization drive and that was the reason behind her recent visits to Delhi and Patna.

Speaking at a meeting of the party’s youth wing held at Paschim Midnapore district’s Jhargram yesterday, Ghosh said Banerjee has lost her mind and is crying for losing thousand of crores of rupees in the recent demonetization of higher currency notes.

That was why she (Banerjee) is visiting New Delhi and Patna. And failing to achieve anything, she is sitting in Nabanna (Secretariat). We had thought that she will ultimately jump in the Ganges… this person (Banerjee) has lost her mind and we are not ready to see her insanity… the state’s people have realised their mistake of bringing in the change in West Bengal,” Ghosh said.
