Might Send Gifts, Sweets But Won’t Give Vote: Mamata Banerjee

Mamata Banerjee


Sreerampur (West Bengal): In an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revelation that Mamata Banerjee sends him kurtas and sweets every year, the West Bengal Chief Minister said, here on Wednesday, she might send gifts and sweets to people on occasions but will not give them vote.

“I send rosogollas to people. I do send them gifts during pujas and offer tea, but will not give (them) a single vote,” Mamata Banerjee said without naming the Prime Minister, during an election rally, here in the Hoogly district.

In a candid conversation with actor Akshay Kumar, Modi revealed that Banerjee, otherwise one of his most vocal critic, herself selects kurtas and gifts them to him every year. (IANS)
