The seesaw situation Mamta Banerjee and Narendra Modi had in the repercussions of the omnipresent destruction done by cyclone Fani was repugnant, even as our forbearance for displeasing dispute is often sky-high at the time of elections. Thus, when Narendra Modi told a political address in Tamluk that Chief Minister of West Bengal refused his proposal to scrutinize the magnitude of damage caused in the state, the following verbal war raised doubt that political tussle amid two leaders, known for their despotic manner of working, may negatively influence the aid work in the cyclone-strike regions of West Bengal.

The primary signs of friction appeared when the news emerged that the Prime Minster has a word with Naveen Patnaik, the chief Minister of Odisha and Keshari Nath Tripathi, the governor of West Bengal to review the preparation ahead of the approaching storm after which the Trinamul Congress quickly responded and called this as extreme biasness as the Prime Minister directly approached the governor rather than the elected chief minister of West Bengal. The centre called these allegations as baseless and said that Mamta Banerjee didn’t answer his calls.

Later Narendra Modi too used this issue at his political barnstorm by labeling Mamta Banerjee as “speedbreaker didi” that his attempts for helping the affected state were abandoned by her solely for political causes. Mamta completely denied the happening and called Modi as “Expiry PM” and further said that she would straightly talk with “New PM” after May 23.  By this very nature, disasters challenge us to harmonize response on a geographical scale whatever the circumstances are even if the two political foundations at the centre and state may be unfavorable.
