Indian Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has made a startling claim on Sunday against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he does not respect his mother and wife.
“How can you, who has not shown any respect to your own mother and your wife, teach us how to respect our country? A prime minster like this can never be trusted with the country,” Banerjee said at an election rally at Heria in East Midnapore district, reported Hindustan Times.
“The prime minister’s speeches are instigating, the language is shameful,” she lamented.
The Trinamool Congress chief appeared agitated and referred to Modi-led BJP leaders as liars and hooligans. “They are using religious propaganda to divert your attention from crucial issues. If this is how elections are to be held, let there be no election at all. Let us all fight over religion,” she said.
