Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi more “dangerous than Hitler”, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday accused the BJP of pumping in “hawala money” in Kolkata to lure voters.
Addressing successive rallies in the city for the seventh and last phase of the Lok Sabha polls, the Trinamool Congress chief lashed out at Modi for demolishing democratic instituions and highjacking the poll process through money and muscle power.
“I have never seen such blatant use of money power. They have hijacked the state machinery. Crores of rupees are being distributed in Kolkata. All this is hawala money. They are distributing as much as Rs 5,000 per vote. Is this an election or a joke,” she said at a rally in Jadavpur here.
