Mamta Banerjee sends Malda mangoes to PM Modi… 10 years of ‘tradition’ special- Of course, politics is bitter and sweet. In the mango season, mangoes do the work of sweetening the relations between the parties many times. West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and PM Narendra Modi fought a bitter fight for Bengal. Even after Mamata took oath as the CM, the war of words between the state and the Center continues.
Even though CM Mamta Banerjee has been continuously targeting PM Modi and his party. Both may have been saying bitter things to each other, but Mamata Banerjee has tried to mix sweetness in the relationship with PM Modi.
Send mangoes to these people too
Mamata has sent mango varieties from Bengal – Himsagar, Malda and Laxmanbhog – to PM Modi last week. Apart from this, mangoes have also been sent to President Ram Nath Kovind, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Home Minister Amit Shah. Mamta has also sent mango boxes to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.
Tension is between center and state
Will Banerjee’s common diplomacy help sweeten the bitterness between the state and the Centre? Political violence in Bengal, Narada scam case, sudden transfer of Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar have been a constant tussle between the Center and the state.
Mangoes are being sent continuously since 2011
The tradition of sending mangoes was started by Mamata Banerjee in 2011, when she became chief minister for the first time. He has continued that tradition this time as well.
