KOLKATA: Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee on Sunday penned a second Bengali poem on demonetisation move, in which she tried to bring out the situation of the common man in the wake of the scrapping of the high denomination notes, at the same time not missing the chance to take jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Starting with a ‘Shame!’, the poem went on to state that common people are going through a phase of depression and that famine has drawn over the people in the time during harvesting of new crops.

“What forced this famine that brought evening in the morning? The sad wet eyes have fierceness (indicating opposition to the move),” she wrote.

Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi as ‘haughty king’, she wrote that never has anyone seen so much arrogant aggressiveness in any Prime Minister. She ended the poem with another ‘shame!’, predicting that the demonetisation move is doomed.

This is Mamata Banerjee’s second poem against Narendra Modi’s biggest gamble. She had written another poem on demonetisation on Nov 12.
