Mamata Banerjee urges EC to cancel Modi’s candidature over horse trading allegation

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee demanded Tuesday cancellation of candidature of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for encouraging horse trading during the Lok Sabha elections.

Earlier, while addressing to a rally in Hooghly district’s Sreerampur Modi claimed forty Trinamool Congress MLAs were in touch with him who will abandon Mamata Banerjee after May 23, when the election results will be announced.

The TMC supremo said, “Don’t expect that people of Bengal will allow the BJP to come to power here. They know that the BJP is a riot mongering force, which wants to divide people.”

Addressing to a rally in Hooghly district’s Bhadreswar the TMC chief added, “Yesterday he said 40 of my MLAs are in touch with him. This will fall under the anti-defection law. He is saying unconstitutional things while holding a constitutional position. Doesn’t he have any shame? He is violating the Constitution and has no right to be the Prime Minister.”

Banerjee said further that Modi should first save Delhi and thereafter try buying MLAs from Bengal.

She added that her government will not fall even after the PM buys all the MLAs and people of Bengal will not vote for Bharatiya Janata Party.
