Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that her 40 lawmakers are in contact with the BJP and will desert her as soon as the elections are over. This is the first time that PM Modi has threatened her to create split in her party. It seems that PM Modi is desperate to get support from Mamata Banerjee to form a coalition government in Delhi.
Mamata Banerjee has been bitterly opposing the BJP and refused to joined hand with PM Modi. PM Modi is eyeing some seats from the state which remained stronghold of the left parties for more than 4 decades. Mamata Banerjee defeated the CPI-M led left government in Bengal after 40 years.
Addressing a rally in Serampore — a town close to Kolkata, the Prime Minister said:
“Didi,( Mamata Banerjee called Didi by her supporters and party workers) on 23 May, the day of results, the lotus will bloom everywhere and your MLAs will leave you and run. Even today, Didi, 40 of your MLAs are in contact with me”. He said it would be difficult for the Chief Minister to survive, “since you have betrayed the people”.
