Guwahati: Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that Modi is suffering from ‘Haratanka’ a phobia of losing elections and is trying to win in the state by dividing the people into communal lines.

While addressing a rally at Krishnanagar in Bengal, Banerjee said that Modi knows that he will lose the elections and that is why his face has turned pale. He is suffering from haratanka, a phobia of losing in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, New Delhi, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Odisha and few other states.

Banerjee was campaigning for Krishnanagar Lok Sabha constituency candidate Mohua Moitra. While campaigning for Moitra, Banerjee attacked Modi saying that she does not mind if BJP wins in Tripura but that will not give him 543 seats and that is the reason he is roaming around in Bengal hoping to get votes by dividing people along Hindu-Muslim lines.

While reacting to Narendra Modi‘s allegations that she has not done anything for the state of West Bengal as the Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee said that people will seek answers from her if it is so.

She also urged the people of her state not to vote for BJP as they will destroy the state as well as the country. She said, “Do not cast your votes for the BJP if you want to save the country. She asked the people that have they forget about demonetization, the suffering they underwent. Crores of people had suffered and now that the elections are going on, they will not give Modi the reply.

She urged the people to give BJP a tight slap for demonetization by casting votes against them.
