West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attacking any one who opposes his policy, retorting to his charge that political leaders behind multi-crore chit fund scams are attacking him over demonetisation.

“Pradhan Mantriji, you are equating corruption with anyone who opposes your policy. Are you the only magician?(sic)” Banerjee said in a tweet this evening, reacting to Modi’s remarks seen as sharp attack on the Trinamool Congress supremo.

“Listen to the voice of the people. Feel their pain. People will not forgive you for this. They are suffering,” she said in another tweet.

Earlier in the day, Modi said political leaders behind multi-crore chit fund scams are attacking him as they have been hit hard by demonetisation.

“I know what sort of people are raising their voice against me. Does the country not know whose money was invested in chit fund business? Lakhs and crores of poor people invested money in chit funds. But with the blessings of politicians, crores and crores of rupees have vanished,” the Prime Minister told a ‘Parivartan’ rally at Agra.

“Due to chit fund loss, hundreds of heads of families were forced to commit suicide. Look at history and they are questioning me,” he said in barbs aimed apparently at Banerjee, who had been rallying political leaders against the demonetisation decision.

However, the Prime Minister did not name any leader.

Some Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders have been arraigned before courts in cases relating to chit fund scams in West Bengal.

    Didi forget about what PM is telling. Tell us the common people what happened to Sharda Chit Scam where tens and thousands lost their life time savings and many many committed suicide? You can only shout and scream to put down the others, but that is not enough. Two days back I saw in the news you going and questioning the RBI chief in Kolkata. Does the RBI report to you?? Why all this dramabaji?
