Addressing an election rally here, she launched a scathing attack on PM Modi and said: "Money does not matter to me. That is why when Narendra Modi came to Bengal and accused my party of being Tolabaaz (toll collector), I wanted to give him a tight slap of democracy. Seeing this kind of lying PM, children will learn the wrong things and the country will face a downfall."
Continuing her tirade against Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), she accused them of carrying "gada" (mace) to break the head of the people and "talwar" (sword) to cut their throat. "Now they have lacs and crores of rupees. They move with money boxes, gada in one hand and talwar in another. This is their politics with no ideology," she said.
