‘Didi accepting her defeat…’: PM Modi responds to TMC’s Varanasi challenge

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for branding BJP leaders as "outsiders".

Referring to some TMC leaders' claim that Banerjee might contest elections from his Lok Sabha seat Varanasi in 2024, Modi mocked the TMC boss, saying this proves that Didi has accepted her defeat.

"Didi is now looking for a place for herself outside Bengal.

The people of Varanasi and Uttar Pradesh are as large-hearted as the people of Bengal.

They won't call her an outsider," he said.
