"Our advice to Mamata Banerjee is to stop behaving like Arvind Kejiriwal and get down to good governance so that TMC honours the mandate given to them in 2016," BJP national Secretary Siddharth Nath Singh said. Earlier, in the day Banerjee had attacked the Centre and taken a jibe at the Prime Minister as well.

"The Modi government has either stopped or slashed funds for various state government projects. He is trying to save money. What for will you save the money? You want to save the money for a coat and get a place in the Guinness Book?," she had told a meeting of TMC's students wing.

Singh characterised Mamata's outburst as an expression of ‘frustration’ and asked her to stop playing the ‘victim card’.

"Mamata's outburst against Modiji reflects her frustration as she, in her second (consecutive) term, cannot blame the previous government in Bengal (because then she would be blaming her own rule) for the problems she inherited," Singh said.
