Chaiwala turns Rafalewala: Mamata Banerjee

first_imgWest Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday called the Rafale deal a “big scam” and said that she supported the views of the Congress party on this issue.One of the most vocal critics of the BJP-led government at the Centre, Ms. Banerjee has not spoken much about the Rafale deal. Asked about The Hindu’s revelations on the deal, the West Bengal Chief Minister said Mr. Modi is used to taking unilateral decisions and interfering in every issue and referred to demonetisation.“I was not sure how much money was involved but something has happened behind the curtains in the deal. Rafale is a big scam and I support Congress on this,” she said. The Trinamool Congress chairperson said Mr. Modi turns out to be a chaiwala (tea vendor) during the polls and becomes Rafale-wala after it. During his public meeting at Jalpaiguri Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said he had a deep bond with north Bengal which produces tea as he had once been a tea vendor. Row over circuit courtMs. Banerjee also took strong exception to the Mr Modi’s inaugurating the Circuit Bench of the Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri during the day.Speaking to journalists Ms Banerjee said neither the State government nor the High Court was informed of the inauguration. “The manpower for the Circuit Bench has to be provided by us. The High Court will send judges. It is like the groom and the bride are missing and the band party comes and plays a political tune,” the Chief Minister said.During his rally Mr. Modi had criticised the State government for the delay in opening up the Circuit Bench.last_img read more

Devance relishes break from guarding hulking Smith

first_imgGinebra’s Joe Devance. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJoe Devance heaved a sigh of relief after getting a short break from defending the heftier Joshua Smith Thursday night.Smith played just nine minutes before complaining on a pain on his right foot, forcing TNT to go all-Filipino from the midway point of the second quarter to the end of the game.ADVERTISEMENT “Just the minutes that I had on him was tough. He’s huge, he’s the biggest player I played, by far,” said Devance, who was tasked to battle Smith for the series.Without the hulking reinforcement, Ginebra ran away with a 125-101 win to take Game 3 and avoid a sweep, extending the series to another do-or-die Game 4 on Saturday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutDevance also took advantage of the chance as the veteran forward had much more gas to contribute to the cause of the squad and finished with 10 points, five rebounds, and three assists in the victory.But he hopes nothing but the best for Smith, saying: “He’s a great player, he seems like a great guy, and he plays well in their system. I heard he got injured. I hope it’s nothing serious.” Regardless of the situation surrounding TNT’s reinforcement, Devance believes that the Gin Kings were just the better team in Game 3. “I think we played a lot better and I think we’re more prepared today. In both games, we had chances to win the game and I just think we had mental lapses. Today, we kind of manned up, had each other’s backs, and played a lot better,” he said.Devance is looking to ride this wave of momentum going to Game 4 on Saturday, where he expects a loud Cuneta Astrodome crowd to back Ginebra in the do-or-die tiff.“It’s rowdy at Cuneta and it’s always for us. But we just got to go out here and get this next game,” he said. “I’m not worried about Game 5, I’m worried about Game 4. We got to get this Game 4, play harder, play smarter, play together, and we’ll see what happens.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire LATEST STORIES NBA: Warriors spend $150K on champagne at nightclub after title win View comments Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextcenter_img Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chicken Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
