Lucknow, Apr 30(GCCurrentAffairs) Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for claiming that 40 All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) MLAs are in touch with the BJP in West Bengal, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday said it was a serious violation of the election model code of conduct for which the PM should be banned for 72 years.
“The PM should be punished for his shameful speech which shows his desperation and black money mentality,” the SP president said here on Tuesday.
Earlier Mr Yadav tweeted, ‘Vikas (development) is asking… Did you hear the shameful speech of Pradhanji (PM)? After losing the faith of 125 crore countrymen, he (Modi) is now relying on the unethical assurance of defection allegedly given by the 40 MLAs.”
“This reflects his (Modi) black money mentality. He should be banned for not 72 hours but for 72 years,” he said.
During an election meeting in West Bengal’s Serampore Lok Sabha seat in Hoogly district and Barrackpore constituency in North 24 Parganas on Monday, the PM had said that 40 MLAs of TMC are in touch with BJP to switch sides.
