Mamata mocks Modi’s foreign trips


As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in the midst of a three-nation foreign trip, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today questioned his frequent visits and suggested that he must first know his country and its people.

"He is presiding over ‘acche Sarkar’, but such is the instance of Acche Sarkar that in nine months, he has made 11 foreign trips. I don’t have any problem with his foreign trips. But most of the time if he is in a foreign country, who will look after the country?" she wondered.

Continuing, she told a civic poll rally here, "You have to first know the entire country. He is not interested in it." 

Banerjee also accused Narendra Modi of lying about the land bill and trying to misguide the nation and the farmer community.

"When we had protested against the land bill, he said, they had done so much for the farmers. All lies. They are only changing names of the projects and giving indulgence to communal violence between communities," Banerjee said.
