West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee denied having said that she will slap the PM, and clarified that she had said he would get a “slap a democracy”.
The TMC supremo was referring to her rally at Purulia in West Bengal a few days ago, where, in reply to Modi’s statement where he claimed that West Bengal is known for “triple T- Trinamool, Tolabaazi and Tax”, the TMC chief had said that she wanted to give the PM “a tight slap of democracy”, and that “money doesn’t matter” to her. 
Later, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had replied at a rally in Bankura that he considers Banerjee his “didi” (elder sister), and her slap would “be a blessing” for him. 
The CM said that she had meant to refer to the “mandate people will give by casting their votes”, and that she is “not that kind of a person” who would slap someone.
