MADARIHAT: Accusing West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee of indulging in politics over the dead, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the Kolkata flyover tragedy was "god's message" to people to save Bengal from the Trinamool Congress.
"The flyover collapsed, such a big tragedy; if some chief goes what does he or she do; they try to save people, assist in rescue work. But what did Didi (Banerjee) do? The first thing she did was to declare that it was the Left Front that gave the contract (for the project).
"Forget Left or right, think about those who are dying, Didi," said Modi referring to the May 31 Vivekananda flyover collapse in Kolkata which killed 26 people.
"At least give respect to the dead; but for Didi, it's the chair which is only visible and not the dying people.
I like PM Modi's sarcasm (or may be he is serious): The tragedy is act of fraud and not act of God. I appreciate his rhythmic usage of words.
What was the message from God through the earthquake of Gujarath ?

very candid remarks by PM and very well presented her habits and the way she runs the state, great!
well said sirrr
Mr. Modi stop playing politics over the dead. You have not done anything on corruption either. From days of Guj CM, you kept a minister convicted by the High Court in your cabinet. Against Raje, Jailtley and Sushma, you did nothing not even a fair investigation was launched. So stop preaching.

Modi knows God very well.

What is the message behind the severe drought in Maharashtra? Who is ruling there? Stop converting tragedies for political advantage.
