’40 of your MLAs are in contact with me,’ PM Modi warns Mamata Banerjee of saffron surge in West Bengal

It remains to be seen the extent to which Saffron dominates Bengal come the 23rd of May. And whether it could spark an exodus from the Trinamool.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at his campaign rally in Serampore, West Bengal dropped what appears to be another bombshell. He said that on the 23rd of May, the Lotus will bloom everywhere and asserted that Mamata’s MLAs will leave her. He further claimed that 40 MLAs belonging to Trinamool were in touch with him.

The Prime Minister also took a dig at the West Bengal Chief Minister’s bizarre comment that she will send him sweets made of mud and pebbles to break his teeth. Narendra Modi said that it was the same soil that has given birth to freedom fighters and great men. Therefore, it will be his ‘saubhagya’ to receive it. He also expressed his gratitude in advance.

Narendra Modi’s remarks about him being in touch with 40 of Mamata’s MLAs is likely to make her even more nervous. Of late, quite a few important leaders have quit the Trinamool and other parties to join the BJP and the Prime Minister appeared to indicate that the trend would only accelerate further if the BJP performs well in the Lok Sabha elections. In recent times, perhaps as a sign of her nervousness, Mamata’s demeanour has been even more eccentric than it usually is.
