On Friday, Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claimed that the BJP will get a 'rosogolla' (zero) in West Bengal in the general elections, asserting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's aim of winning a large number of seats will remain a day dream.
"Dilli ka laddoo jo khaya woh pachhtaya [whoever ate the laddoo of Delhi has regretted it]. In 2014, they got two seats, they will get a big rosogolla this time. They will get a big zero," she told election rallies in Balurghat and Gangarampur.
Banerjee said the prime minister's promise of offering 'laddoos' to the voters of Bengal in both their hands will never be fulfilled. Before the 2016 Assembly elections in West Bengal, PM Modi had said in public meetings that if the people vote the BJP to power in the state, they would have 'laddoos' in both their hands, with one as the NDA government at the Centre and the other in the state. She said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will never be able to keep his promise of offering 'laddoos' to the voters of Bengal in both their hands.
She said, "In 2014 they got two seats, they will get a rosogolla (zero) here this time." Attacking PM Modi and the controversy surrounding a biopic made on him, she said "only making shoes" in the name of the Prime Minister was left to be done.
