The Chief Minister of Bengal had taken pot-shots at the BJP leadership for sending its leaders from the other states to Bengal to strategize in the elections. The PM said, “We are being called ‘tourists’, fun is being made of us, we are being insulted. Didi, people of Rabindranath’s Bengal don’t consider anybody an outsider”. The PM’s supporters were cheering loudly for him in the rally.
