Purba Medinipur, March 21: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which seized people's cash during demonetisation is the "Bharatiya Jaghanya Party" consisting of 'monsters and demons'.

Addressing a public meeting in Kanthi Dakshin, Banerjee said, "Why to vote for them? What does the BJP have done? Just lying! They captured people's money in 'notebandi'. The BJP means Bharatiya Jaghanya (disgusting) Party."

"I was also a seven-time Lok Sabha MP. I have seen many prime ministers. But I have never seen such a cruel, authoritarian and dictatorial prime minister. The BJP is the party of monsters and demons. It is the party of Ravana, Duryodhana and Dushasana. It is the party of unrest and terror," she stated as she launched the fiercest attack on Prime Minister.
