Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, takes a swipe at Prime Minister Modi over food

Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal and a prominent member of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), expressed her readiness to “cook something for Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he wanted,” even though she wasn’t sure whether he would accept and consume her meal.

“But will you eat what I cook?” she questioned. She continued, “I have tried a lot of different dishes from various states because I do not believe in discrimination.” She brought up his statements during a rally in Barrackpore, quoting him as saying, “Don’t eat fish, meat, or eggs.”

Since Prime Minister Modi made fun of RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav last month for consuming fish at a time when some Hindus refrain from eating non-vegetarian food, food and fish have been major themes in Bengal’s election campaign. “People will consume food in the ways and amounts they choose. Consume anything you like. People who want vegetarian cuisine will consume it. Meat will be given to those who want it. Different languages, traditions, and attire all belong in our nation,” Banerjee said, adding that she has been cooking since she was a little kid.

Next, Banerjee spoke about Modi’s promises of “400+” seats. “It is evident that the BJP will not be regaining power,” she said, adding, “Even 200 seats are beyond their reach.” Their expressions reveal the reality; they have stopped speaking about their more than 400 allegations.”
