‘Ban Modi for 72 years’: Akhilesh Yadav hits out at PM Modi for Bengal speech

Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the latter claimed that 40 TMC MLAs were in touch with him. 

Akhilesh said, “Modi should be banned for 72 years for his “shameful” speech.”

“Vikas (development) is asking… Did you hear the shameful speech of Pradhanji (PM)? After losing the faith of 125 crore country people, he (Modi) is now relying on the unethical assurance allegedly given by the 40 MLAs,” Akhilesh tweeted.

“This reflects his (Modi) black money mentality. He should be banned not for 72 hours but for 72 years,” Akhilesh added.

The Election Commission (EC) has recently barred numerous leaders from campaigning for 72 hours due to poll code violations.

On the campaign trail in West Bengal’s Serampore Lok Sabha seat in Hoogly district and Barrackpore constituency in North 24 Parganas, PM Modi attacked TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee over her prime ministerial ambitions.

“Didi, even your MLAs will desert you when the results of 2019 Lok Sabha Elections are out. Your 40 MLAs are in touch with me and all your MLAs will desert you once the BJP wins the election,” Modi said
