Mamta Banerjee is all fire and brimstone when it comes to taking on PM Narendra Modi. Even during the Covid review meetings, she was her sulking self often striking a discordant note at whatever Modi said. Everyone knows her fiery temperament and her passion for picking up fights.
But, she melts like an ice cream when it comes to President Ramnath Kovind. Mamta is like a family friend for Kovind and has some great memories spending time with his family members. So, when President Ram Nath Kovind called her up to enquire about the destruction caused by the recent cyclone Ampaan, she was all nicety and courtesy. They had a hearty chat where they exchanged lot of information about the destruction caused by the deadly typhoon.
In fact, Mamta was among the first parties to extend support to Ram Nath Kovind, when he contested for the presidential election. Also, she was among the first to congratulate him when he had won the election and was made the president of the country.
