Sreerampur (West Bengal), April 24: In an apparent reaction to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revelation that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sends him kurtas and sweets, the TMC Supremo said that she might send gifts and sweets to people on occasions but will not give them vote.
“I send rosogollas to people. I do send them gifts during pujas and offer tea, but will not give (them) a single vote,” Banerjee said without mentioning PM Modi, during an election rally, in the Hoogly district.
In an informal conversation with actor Akshay Kumar, Modi stated Banerjee, despite bieng his most vocal critic, she herself selects kurtas and gifts them to him every year.
He also revealed Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina used to send him special sweets every year.
When Banerjee came to know about it, she also started sending him Bengali sweets on “one or two occasions every year”.
