Prime Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee said on Tuesday that she thinks she likes the name ‘INDIA’.
Speaking to reporters after a brief meeting with Governor CV Ananda Bose in the Raj Bhavan, Ms Banerjee said that the more the BJP talks badly about the opposition coalition, the more they will prove they are up for it.
“Thanks to our Prime Minister. I think he likes the name ‘INDIA’. Like ordinary people, he has also accepted it. The more they talk bad about the name, the more they will prove that they love it,” she said.
Prime Minister Modi denounced India’s National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) as the most rudderless the country has ever seen, citing maligned names such as the East India Company and the Indian mujahideen to argue that people cannot be misled by using the country’s name alone.
To set the tone for their 2024 Lok Sabha campaign, 26 opposition parties formed the INDIA Group to jointly take on the ruling BJP-led NDA.
