Meanwhile, at a rally in West Bengal’s Tamluk, PM Modi criticised CM Mamata Banerjee and called her arrogant. He said that he reached out to her for Cyclone Fani disaster relief but she did not respond. The Prime Minister also said that Mamata Banerjee failed to comment on the much-talked about Masood Azhar, who was designated a global terrorist by the UN recently. Following this rally, the PM addressed a rally in Jhargram and said that Mamata Banerjee does not want the poor to benefit from the Ayushman Bharat scheme.
