New Delhi:9/2:(odiannews):Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on her home turf, she returned the favour in the same measure saying she becomes better if someone picks up a fight with her.
“If you take "panga"(fight) with me, I will become "changa"(better),” news agency ANI quoted Banerjee as saying in Kolkata. She also used “chaiwala” reference, often made by Modi to reflect his humble economic background, to corner the prime minister on the Rafale deal.
“During the election, he (PM Modi) becomes Chaiwala. He becomes Rafalewalla once election is over,” Banerjee said.
Friday saw return of fresh Rafale charge against the Narendra Modi government following a report in The Hindu that cited a note written by defence ministry officials in November 2015 objecting to “parallel parleys” by the Prime Minister Office (PMO) at a time when the Indian Negotiating Team was in talks with the French team.
