Modi vs country in 2024 elections: Mamata Banerjee
New Delhi: In an effort to stitch an all opposition political front against the BJP, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, who is in Delhi, said it would be Modi vs country in the 2024 General Elections.
On the controversial Pegasus surveillance project, the West Bengal chief minister said, " My phone is already tapped. If Abhishek's (Mukherjee) phone is tapped, and I am talking to him, my phone is automatically tapped. Pegasus has put everyone's life in danger".
When asked if she will be the face of Opposition, Mamata Banerjee said, "I am not a political astrologer, it depends on the situation. Today I have a meeting with Sonia Ji and Arvind Kejriwal. After Parliament session, Opposition parties must meet".
Mamata Banerjee further said that PM Narendra Modi's popularity had been affected due to the mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"Narendra Modi was popular in 2019. Today, they have not kept a record of the bodies, last rites were denied and bodies were thrown in river Ganga. Those who lost their loved ones will not forget and forgive".
