Mamata Banerjee urges Narendra Modi for complete debt waiver of Rs 2.74 lakh crore
After a prolonged war of words, there are clear signs of a new found love fest between the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government and the Trinamool Congress. The shift in the relationship is all too evident during the ongoing budget session of Parliament where, instead of staging angry protests like in the winter session, Trinamool MPs are far more mellow.
In May last year, Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee threatened to drag Narendra Modi, whom she called ‘Haridas Pal’ (insignificant Tom, Dick or Harry) to jail by tying a rope around his waist. Now, on the eve of Modi’s maiden visit to Bengal as the Prime Minister, she is preparing to cement her new found understanding with him.
