Lok Sabha Polls 2019: PM Modi, Mamata locked in a blame game over vandalisation of Vidyasagar statue in West Bengal
Updated : May 17, 2019 07:09 AM IST
While Modi said the bust was vandalised allegedly by "TMC goondas". Banerjee claimed it was BJP "hooligans" who had destroyed a heritage of the state.
Modi said his government was committed towards Vidyasagar's vision and promised to install his grand statue at the same spot in Kolkata.
Rejecting Modi's offer, Banerjee said Bengal does not need BJP's money and that the state has enough to rebuild the statue.
