Chaiwala before election, Paytm wala now: Mamata takes a dig at PM Modi

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that the “chai wala”  before has become "Paytm wala" and described the Modi government as "deaf and mute".

“Before the polls he was a tea seller, now he has become the one who endorses Paytm,” Trinamool chief said, addressing a public rally in West Bengal’s Bankura district.

She announced a number of state-run plans at the event organised by the West Bengal government, also asked the people whether they have enough money.


“Common people are understanding the crisis. I don’t know when the Prime Minister will realise this. By the time he does there will be a disaster,” Mamata said.

Ms Banerjee mentioned the example of Venezuela government delaying its decision of demonetising currency notes when people faced hardships and added the government at Centre is going ahead with it.

“You cannot dictate which mobile phone to purchase, which App to download and where to keep money,” TMC chief said, adding she will not allow people to ask for commission at the cost of the hardship of common man.

She also made a jibe at PM Modi's "fakir" remarks and said it is people who have become fakir.
