War of words erupt between PM Modi & Mamata Banerjee over funds to farmers

A massive war of words has broken out once again in West Bengal. This after Prime Minister Modi singled out Mamata Banerjee for depriving the farmers in the state of the funds that were released by the Centre yesterday. Prime Minister Modi used the birth anniversary of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee as an occasion to reach out to the farmers and released Rs 18000 Cr funds, which is to be given to 9Cr farmers in six states. Mamata Banerjee has responded to the charges and has hit back, claiming that the Prime Minister is misleading with a half-truth. The face-off is likely to intensify with poll dates approaching closer in the state.
