Disregarding West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's ominous declaration of removing Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Indian politics, an unfazed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said that she has clearly lost her mental balance post demonetisation.
"She has certainly lost her cool and certainly lost her mental balance which should be there as a politician, therefore she is angry and ranting theses kind of language against the Prime Minister. I can only say to Mamata Banejee, whether she lives or die I have nothing to do with it, but Narendra Modi will become the Prime Minister after 2019," BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh told ANI.
Singh further alleged that Banerjee was unable to convert her unaccounted money into white and that is why she has been ranting against the Prime Minister.
"She has realized after demonetisation that she didn't get any time to convert her unaccounted money or illegal into legal money so therefore she has certainly lost her cool and certainly lost her mental balance which should be there as a politician. Therefore she is angry and ranting theses kind of language against the Prime Minister," he said.
Singh further said that the statement did not behove of Banerjee who holds a constitutional position of a state and demanded an unconditional apology from her.
"Mamata Banerjee holds a constitutional position and the kind of language she has used against the Prime Minister is obnoxious and there are no words, but she should apologise," he said.
Banerjee while holding the protest earlier today said, "I am taking the pledge that either I'll die or live but will remove PM Modi from Indian politics."
Attacking the Prime Minister, Banerjee said, "Markets, movie halls, theatres, art, culture all are on pause now. Hawkers are unable to earn anything. Common people are affected. We call all the intellectual class nation-wide to take their protest to roads. Let's fight to find solution for the common people.
