Kolkata, May 24: Describing Prime Minister rendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as “two sides of the same coin”, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Sunday alleged the BJP and the Trimool Congress have a tacit understanding.
“Modi and Mamata are two sides of the same coin. They are each others’ most trusted friend and both show similar traits,” Ramesh told media persons here. “Modi came to power promising maximum governce and minimum government but in reality it is one man governce and maximum arrogance. All other ministers are non-entities. The situation is identical in Bengal much like a mirror image,” Ramesh said. “That’s why Modi and Mamata are together,” he added, referring to the apparent bonhomie between the Trimool Congress chief and Modi during his recent visit to the state.
Reacting to union Fince Minister Arun Jaitley’s clarification that the BJP was opposed to the Trimool but political opposition should not be confused with constitutiol relationship, Ramesh called the BJP leader “the most effective spinner” in Indian politics. “When Jaitley says that there is no understanding between the Trimool and the BJP, rest assured it’s the opposite.
