During his speech, PM Modi said Mamta Banerjee (Didi) has scored an ‘own game’ in politics similar to football post her khela in Nandigram.
He said, “Didi, people say you play a lot of football. Didi, the day you did ‘khela’ at the polling in Nandigram, the same day the country knew that you have lost the elections. You have already scored an own goal in politics like football!”
He further added, “Didi, you are not proud that West Bengal is seeing more than 80 per cent voter turnout. It means you are losing. Recently, you appealed for Muslim unity and said their votes should not divide. It shows that the Muslim vote bank, which you considered as your strength, has slipped out of your hands.”
