With yet another jibe, Prime Minister in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas asked how Chief Minister Mamata is going to tolerate 'Har Har Mahadev' slogans in Varansi, where she is "planning to contest elections", when 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans irk her. "Didi's party says that she will contest from Varanasi, which makes two things clear -- that she has accepted her defeat in Bengal and that Didi has started a search for her space outside Bengal," said PM Narendra Modi in Sonarpur. He added, "People of Varanasi are as kind-hearted as people of Bengal. But you (Mamata Banerjee) will meet so many people with vermillion and 'choti'. 'Jai Shri Ram' slogan irritates you, but you will have to hear 'Har Har Mahadev' every 2 minutes. What will you do then?"
