TMC accuses Modi of horse trading, to complain to EC

KOLKATA, Apr 29: Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Derek O’ Brien on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of horse trading for saying at a poll rally that 40 party MLAs were in touch with him, and said the TMC would complain to the Election Commission of India.
“Expiry Babu PM, lets get this straight. Nobody will go with you. Not even one councillor. Are you election campaigning or horse trading? Your expiry date is near. Today, we are complaining to the Election Commission. Charging you with horse trading,” Brien tweeted.
Modi while addressing an election rally at Sreerampur in Hoogly district on Monday said that 40 TMC MLAs were in touch with him and would desert their party once the BJP wins the general elections.
“Political ground has slipped from under your feet,” Modi said at the rally, targeting TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Banerjee is one of Modi’s and the BJP’s severest critics. (PTI)
