Kolkata — Mamata Banerjee made a sharp criticism of the Narendra Modi accusing him of doing politics with the blood of Indian armymen, while referring Modi as “Modi Babu” and accusing him of keeping a blind eye on the Pulwama terror attack despite advance intelligence reports.
Speaking at a cure committee meeting of the Trinamool in Kolkata, she demanded to know why the Pulwama attack had happened and where he was when it occured.
She also said that the attack of February 14 could be prevented if Modi would have acted precisely on the intelligence reports and airlifted the military personnel from Jammu to Srinagar.
Banerjee criticized sharply and said, “You can’t do politics with the blood of jawans.”
She accused BJP for spending a lot of money on manipulating EVM machines and she asked the West Bengal chief minister to keep a tight eye on the EVM and VVPAT.
“They are trying to manipulate EVMs in Bengal. We have got information about trying to manipulate in Bengal. They have given an organization the job. They are claiming they will get 23 or 24 seats. They are hoping to tamper EVM machines and get them. We will show them. We will fight for every inch. It’s not so easy. Those you entrust the job with of fixing EVMs, they will turn against you. You are thinking you can do everything with muscle power? No, it won’t. Modi Babu’s days are over. Traitors’ days are over. The bell is tolling. Parivartan is coming,” Ms Banerjee said.
“After Parliament ended, an incident took place at Pulwama. We all condemn the incident. We convey our condolences to the bereaved families. But why did this incident happen, Modi Babu, where were you at that time? Where were you when the incident happened,” she said.
“You knew the incident was going to happen in advance. You have the information. The government has an intelligence input. There were government instructions. And why were the jawans not airlifted that day, why were they pushed into the jaws of death without Nana checking, without sanitising the road? Because you wanted to do politics? One can fool some of the people some of the time… But not all the time, ” she added.
