Bharatiya Janata Party Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has questioned the sudden rise in the value of painting by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. In a rally Modi slammed Banerjee and sarcastically lauded her talent for painting, he said, "Your paintings used to be sold for Rs four lakh, Rs 8 lakh or Rs 15 lakh, but what is the reason that one of your paintings sold for Rs 1.80 crore. I respect art. But who was the person who bought the painting for Rs 1.80 crore." Banerjee has ofcourse retaliated back, calling Modi 'devil'. Earlier in the day, Trinamool Congress' spokesperson Derek O'Brien threatened to sue Modi and claimed the money raised from Banerjee's paintings were used for party fund and charity. We thought our readers would be interested to admire some of her work.
