Nagrakata (WB): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be thrown out of power and politics and his mouth should be sealed with a surgical adhesive tape.

“Modi did not have time to look after the farmers and the middle-class, as he was busy touring the globe for 4.5 years of his five-year term,” Banerjee told a rally here. “When elections are knocking at the door, Modi is threatening everybody and blabbering lies,” Banerjee alleged, claiming that he would get the first prize if there was a competition of telling lies.

"In this election, people would stick a Leukoplast on his lips so that he is not able to tell lies. For the sake of the country he should not only be ousted from his chair (PM post) but also from politics," she said.

Hitting out at the prime minister's comment on Sunday at Coochbehar district that Banerjee and the TMC of suffering from fear psychosis of Modi, Banerjee warned him not to threaten her as it will be the biggest mistake.

She said, "During the 5 years, he has been touring the globe for 4.5 years. What was he doing when farmers were committing suicides across the country? What was he doing when people died due to demonetisation and crores of people lost their jobs?"
