Softening her stance on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said she favours him and does not want to blame the prime minister for all the problems.
Mamata trained gun at BJP president Amit Shah, alleging that the latter was meddling in government affairs.
While talking to a private news channel, she said, "I favour PM Modi, not Amit Shah. I don’t want to blame him. Why should I blame him?"
The West Bengal chief minister asserted that how could a party president take a meeting of ministers. She questioned,"Who is the PM Modi or Shah?"
Mamata showered praise on former Priem minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, saying that the latter was also from BJP, but he was balanced and impartial.
“We did not face any problem under his leadership,” she said.
