Mamata praises Modi but targets Amit Shah

From the very beginning of Narendra Modi’s Government West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has been very critical about Prime Minister Modi but recently West Bengal CM took everyone by surprise on Friday and said that she didn’t have any problem with Prime Minister Narendra Modi but blamed BJP President Amit Shah for what she called an “environment of dictatorship in the country”.

She said that”I favour Narendra Modi, not Amit Shah. I don’t blame the PM. Why should I blame him? His party should take care of it,” Mamata told CNN-News18, adding that she didn’t only want to blame the Prime Minister.

Hitting out at the BJP President, Amit Shah, and the way he conducts his work, Mamata said, “Everbody is scared. Super dictatorship is going on. How can a party president take a meeting of ministers? Who is the PM — Modi or Shah,” said Mamata.

Her remarks about PM Modi can become the latest cause of worry for the already fragmented opposition. The sudden change of opinion might be because Bengal CM needs financial assistance from the Centre, that could be a reason for her warming up to PM Modi.
