Kolkata/New Delhi: This election season has witnessed many tricks employed by politicians to finish adversaries, but this one is one of its kind. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday threatened to send Prime Minister Narendra Modi sweets filled with rocks. What's the purpose? To break his teeth!

ANI reported that Banerjee claimed that Prime Minister Modi’s Bengal visits began as he needs votes this election. She was speaking at Asansol, the Lok Sabha constituency of Union Minister Babul Supriyo where Modi campaigned recently.

This statement comes in the backdrop of Narendra Modi disclosing in the interview with actor Akshay Kumar that the Bengal chief minister sends him kurtas and sweets every year. This embarrassed Banerjee, who is fighting a pitched battle against the BJP in the state. Later she said, her courtesy is being politicised by the Prime Minister.

One may recall that in the era of CPI(M)'s Jyoti Basu, Mamata Banerjee was photographed by media every Vijaya Dashami touching the feet of the then chief minister. Basu and Banerjee were otherwise bitter mutual critics.
