West Bengal has a motor-mouthed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee but she is an ironclad politician nonetheless.
Time and again, we have excused her for her dorky statements in full public view but she still is uproariously confidant sometimes. Her major political breakthrough was replacing the CPIM government who reigned supreme for 30 years with sweeping majority, however the victory took her quite elbow-grease because she rose from the grassroots to riches.
Mamata Banerjee is called the fire-woman in West Bengal who maintains a nondescript lifestyle which is not likely of a Chief Minister, but then among the dozen odd virtues, her motor-mouth seems pretty unfitting.
Here are some statements from her that are thigh-slappingly hilarious:
“Today is world press freedom day, Our government in Bengal has always respected journalists and recognized the key role they play”
Looks like the heat waves in Kolkata wreaked havoc in her sanity, there have been bitter instances back in time which invalidates her statement but letting the sleeping dogs lie is what you should do.
‘I’ll die or live but will remove PM Modi from Indian politics’
Mamata Banerjee has gone desperate after the demonetisation and leaving no stone unturned to hog the limelight like her Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal. She vowed to remove Modi from Indian politics and her statement surprised many of us.
“Nitish Kumar is a gaddar”
She said this during a dharna is Patna. She further added “gaddari karne walon ko nahin chhodenge (betrayers will not be spared)” because Nitish Kumar has openly supported the demonetisation.
“PM Modi has created more havoc than Hitler”
She even went on to call PM Modi ‘Hitler’ because he apparently has failed to recover black money from Swiss banks that he promised earlier. She said this shortly after meeting the then president Pranab Mukherjee and we are shell-shocked. Without even stopping here, she said that PM Modi has disappointed everyone by making Hitler like comments.
“PM Ji you think you alone are intelligent”
Lately, PM Modi has asked all BJP MPs and MLAs to submit details of their bank transactions and Mamata could not help taking a dig at him, she said he is not an intelligent politician and that his 21 days of note bandi made the whole country ghar bandi.
“Sometimes the new born should weight 1,500 kgs”
On the context of malnutrition within kids being raised in poverty, she issued this statement and we rubbed our eyes and looked again to believe if she really meant it.
“Bengal is not a corrupted state, there is no corruption in Bengal”
Meh! Mamata Banerjee, being the forever-frothing-in-the-mouth, says these things spontaneously and remains unapologetic after that. We really bow down before her confidence. After all, bringing comic relief is no small deal.
