"He taunted Banerjee, who had earlier dubbed him a paper tiger, and said women were not safe in her state and drew parallels between West Bengal and Gujarat."
Bankura -, May 4 - BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Sunday said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had failed to curb crimes against women despite being a woman.

We worship Shakti in Gujarat during Navratri as you do in Bengal during Durga puja. But in my state, during the nine days of Navratri, a woman can go anywhere alone on her scooty without any fear even at 2 a.m., the Gujarat chief minister told an election rally here.

He taunted Banerjee, who had earlier dubbed him a paper tiger, and said women were not safe in her state and drew parallels between West Bengal and Gujarat.

Where there is a paper tiger, daughters are safe... Then why is your state, as per central government statistics, among the three states known for maximum atrocities against women? Modi asked.
