Reacting to the slur of dynastic politics, Bhattacharya accused the Prime Minister of not fulfilling the guarantee of marital life.

Bhattacharya said: “The Prime Minister did not fulfil the guarantee of his married life, then how could he understand family and dynasties?”

On corruption allegations, Bhattacharya reminded the Prime Minister to speak about Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Maharashtra leader Ajit Pawar and
Praful Patel.

“While speaking about corruption, the Prime Minister seems to have forgotten that corruption-tainted leaders such as Himanta Biswa Sarma, Ajit Pawar, Praful Patel, Narayan Rane, B.S. Vedurappa, Suvendu Adhikari were like feathers in your cap which you wore today at Dhanbad,” said Bhattacharya.

Reacting to Modi’s allegation about law and order in Jharkhand, the JMM leaders reminded about Manipur sectarian violence, Kathua rape incident involving a BJP MP.

On Modi exhorting people to shout loudly so that voices can be heard even in jail, Bhattacharya said: “Our leader Hemant Soren might be in jail through deceit and fraudulent means of the ruling Centre but the voice of the leader is echoing in the open sky across Jharkhand that I am Hemant and Jharkhand will not bow down.” He also called the Prime Minister’s claim of winning elections in Jharkhand as “day-dreaming”.
