"Received very touching New Year greetings from @MamataOfficial ji & that too in Gujarati! I thank Mamata Didi & wish her a great 2016," PM Modi tweeted.
PM Modi received greetings from Mamata amidst on open fight between her party Trinamool Congress and BJP over the recent violence in Malda.
Trinamool Congress whose government recently prevented a BJP delegation from visiting the violence-hit area, has alleged that the saffron party was trying to 'communalise' the Malda incident.
BJP, on the other hand, has alleged that Mamata Banerjee was playing the 'dirtiest vote bank politics' in Malda as she was trying to 'communalise' issues by using "extremist forces".
Mamata has also accused the Modi government of "non-cooperation" and alleged that it had curtailed funds for various projects in the state. "Had there been full cooperation of the Centre, huge employment opportunities could have been generated in the state," Mamata said recently.
"In spite of this (non-cooperation), we have created employment opportunities for a few lakh of people," she had claimed.
