Speaking at the rally, Pm Modi said, “Speedbreaker Didi has tried to play politics even on Cyclone Fani. I tried to get in touch with her but she is so arrogant that she refused to talk to me. I thought she’d get in touch but she didn’t call. I was anxious for the people of Bengal so I tried once again but she refused to talk even second time.”
The PM asserted that he is aware of the destruction of cyclone Fani in West Bengal and all agencies are working on relief and rescue. He mentioned that Mamata Banerjee is trying to politicise the natural disaster.
Mamata Banerjee was earlier seen claiming that PM Modi has talked to Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik but has not bothered to call her. It was later clarified by the PM’s office that it was Mamata who had not responded to two phones calls from PM Modi.
PM Modi had visited Odisha earlier today where he had conducted an aerial survey of cyclone-hit areas and had held a review meeting with CM Patnaik and state officials. It was revealed by PMO that the Mamata government had declined the PMO’s request for a similar meeting in West Bengal.
West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee was recently found confronting people for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans while her convoy was passing by. PM Modi said, “Didi is so frustrated these days that she doesn’t even want people to talk about God. She is arresting and jailing those who are shouting chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’.

Modi also talked about the recent decision by the United Nations to put Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Masood Azhar on the global terrorist list. Modi said, “It is a matter of pride for India and a huge victory against the terrorists that after sustained efforts, Masood Azhar has been designated as a global terrorist by the United Nations. However, Didi doesn’t find it worth commenting.”
