An Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA has warned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to mend her ways or get ready to meet the same fate as former finance minister who is currently lodged in jail.

The MLA from Bairia Assembly constituency Surendra Singh said the Trinamool Congress supremo should "become the Prime Minister of Bangladesh" as she was opposed to the Register of Citizens (NRC).

"The statements made by Mamata Banerjee against the show that she is backed by foreign forces," Singh told reporters here on Saturday on the sidelines of a 'krishi mela'.

"It seems that Mamata is forgetting that bad days are approaching her. She should change her language and behaviour otherwise she will meet the same fate as Congress leader P Chidambaram," he said.

On September 13, Mamata Banerjee took out a rally in Kolkata against the in Assam after the final list was released on August 31 which left out 19 lakh people.

After the rally, the TMC chief had said that she would never allow the Centre to conduct a similar exercise in West Bengal.

Singh, however, said: "If Mamata wants to do by protecting the infiltrators from Bangladesh then she should become the Prime Minister of Bangladesh."

"In Bengal, lord Ram and lord Hanuman respectively in form of Amit Shah and Yogi Adityanath have appeared, and in the next Assembly elections, there will be a change of power in the state," he added.
