Prime Minister Narendra Modi today compared the Mamata Banerjee government in Bengal to a second version of the Left Front government. “Bengal’s politics is the biggest reason for its condition,” he said at a political rally in Haldia — considered the stronghold of former Trinamool minister Suvendu Adhikari, who joined the BJP in December.
Taking a swipe at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, PM Modi said there has been a “rebirth of communism” under her government.
This is PM Modi’s second official visit to Bengal within two weeks. His first visit — held in January to mark the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, one of the state’s icons — had triggered huge flashpoint with the state’s Trinamool Congress government after the “Jai Shri Ram” slogan controversy.
