Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of neither receiving nor returning his calls to assess the losses incurred by cyclone Fani.
Addressing an election rally in East Midnapore district’s Tamluk, Modi also alleged that the Bengal government has, earlier in the day, refused his request to hold a meeting in order to assess the losses incurred by the state in face of the natural disaster that caused havoc in Odisha.
“Speed breaker didi tried her best to politicise the issue of cyclone. I tried to talk to her over phone to seek an update on the situation here. But such is her arrogance that she refused to talk to me. I kept waiting for her to call back but she did not,” Modi said here.
