‘Journalists’ fail to understand the difference between ‘MLA’ and ‘MP’, twist PM Modi’s statement to spread lies

Even though the false narrative pushed by the anti-Modi brigade may be trivial in nature but it points towards a much larger agenda of attempts to discredit Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

PM Modi during his election rally speech in Serampore, West Bengal had dropped a bombshell, warning Mamata Banerjee that 40 MLA belonging to Trinamool Congress (TMC) were in touch with him. PM Modi while asserting that Lotus will bloom in West Bengal Bengal after May 23, had said that her MLAs will desert her.

The upsurge in the popularity of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in West Bengal seems to have unnerved not only Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) but also some of his baiters, who are now resorting to false propaganda by twisting Prime Minister Modi’s statements.

Kallol Bhattacharjee, a journalist at The Hindu, just like his employers indulged in propaganda by attributing misleading statements to Prime Minister Modi. Kallol Bhattacharjee, who claims to be an author and a journalist, unfortunately, willfully or otherwise, could not understand the difference between MLAs and MPs.

Kallol Bhattacharjee seems to have deliberately misrepresented the facts to take a dig at PM Modi. As it is evident in the video, PM Modi was referring to 40 MLAs of the TMC, while the Hindu ‘journalist’ claimed that PM Modi was referring to the 40 MPs and asked on how was he referring to 40 MPs as TMC has just 33 members in the parliament.

The lie was not just limited to Kallol Bhattacharjee alone. Another self-proclaimed journalist Saba Naqvi, one of the beneficiaries of the Aam Aadmi Party also attempted to twist PM Modi’s statements but only to be schooled by social media users. Naqvi claimed that PM Modi statements meant that he will be needing Trinamool MPs post election results on May 23. While twisting PM Modi’s statements, she hinted that BJP would be seeking an alliance with TMC because BJP would perhaps fall short of a majority.

Salil Tripathi too made some condescending remarks against PM Modi stating that he had skipped Maths classes while pursuing a master degree.

Some of their minions followed these ‘intellectuals’ to target PM Modi for asserting his power in the West Bengal by challenging Mamata Banerjee in her fortress.

Even though the false narrative pushed by the anti-Modi brigade may be trivial in nature but it points towards a much larger agenda of attempts to discredit Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
