From 'expiry babu' to offering 'rosogollas' the TMC supremo has left no stone unturned to mock Prime Minister Narendra Modi and block BJP from making inroads in her bastion, West Bengal.
Elevating the already intensifying political battle, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, now making another personal jibe at PM Modi wants to offer him with 'laddu' to break his teeth.
In an unusual attack, Banerjee stated that they would make 'sweets from soil' and would fill it with pebbles like 'cashew nuts and raisins' to break PM Modi's teeth.
She accused PM Modi of not coming to West Bengal earlier, but during the election season to seek votes from the state in an address in Asansol.
Making the bitter battle a bit sweeter, Banerjee said that BJP will get a 'big rosogolla' in West Bengal. But make no mistake about it. What the TMC boss, known for breathing fire and brimstone, was talking about was not the syrupy dessert her state is famous for but 'zero' seats in West Bengal in the Lok Sabha polls.
"Dilli ka laddoo jo khaya woh pachhtaya (whoever ate the laddoo of Delhi has regretted it). In 2014, they got two seats, they will get a big rosogolla this time. They will get a big zero," She told election rallies in Balurghat and Gangarampur. She said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will never be able to keep his promise of offering 'laddoos' (another ball- shaped sweet delicacy) to the voters of Bengal in both their hands.
Not the one who sugar-coats the bitter pills she administers to her political rivals, Banerjee claimed the BJP will not be able to get past 100 seats in the general elections. She asserted the saffron party will draw a blank in southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. "In Uttar Pradesh they had 73 seats. I doubt whether they will get even 13 this time," the West Bengal chief minister claimed, adding the BJP will not be able to open its account in the northeast and Odisha.
