The victory in an Indian election is based on a politician’s capacity to tell lies and hoodwink the voters most of whom are uneducated.

All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) Chairperson Mamata Banerjee started her campaign in Bangla for the 2019 Lok Sabha election with a rally at Dinhata in Cooch Behar on April 3.
Ms. Banerjee – who is a fierce critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi – challenged him for an open debate on various issues in the country. “I am challenging Modi to a debate. We will ask questions to each other, let’s see what he replies to mine,” she stated.
Ms. Banerjee attacked Modi’s policies, saying 2 crore (20 million) people have lost their jobs throughout the country because of Modi / BJP government’s policies.
She also has categorically demanded a judicial probe monitored by a former supreme court judge into the demonetization decision that was arbitrarily announced by Modi.
On November 8, 2016, Modi had demonetized currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 with the belief that his decision will help check corruption and stop the flow of black money in the country. But his decision resulted in utter chaos in India.
Recently, Ms. Banerjee had introduced an interactive tool to expose the lies and falsehood of PM Modi. The web-based tool called Jumla Meter on AITC website claims that since 2014 PM Modi has been on a lying spree and he has been caught multiple times while lying. It quotes different sources to give examples of what Modi said and what the truth is.
“I do not speak lies like Modi babu (Mr. Modi). Will call him “Expiry Babu” from now on,” she said, indicating that Modi’s BJP will get defeated in the Lok Sabha election.
Earlier, she had said that the end of Modi Government has come, adding that Modi has ruled for 5 years by using law-enforcement agencies such as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Income Tax (IT) Department, and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to target his opponents.

“Expiry date of Modi Government is here. He has ruled for five years with the help of CBI, IT, and ED,” Ms. Banerjee stated.
