When Rajat Sharma pointed out that Mamata Banerjee has been alleging that BJP has become a washing machine, where corrupt persons enter and come out as pure as white, Prasad replied, "What's happening in Bengal? Booths are being captured, daughters are being dishonoured, corruption is rampant, Hindu culture and traditions are being attacked, and yet Mamata is silent.

Let Mamata mock us, I want to tell you, the people of Bengal are going to give a historic verdict this time."
