Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for accusing her party of corruption and dared him to send her to jail.

She also expressed confidence to bounce back with massive mandate in the polls even from the jail.

"The PM lies every now and then. Let him put me behind bars. Even then I shall bounce back in the polls with massive mandate," Banerjee said addressing an election campaign here in Murshidabad district.

During his recent election rallies in West Bengal, the Prime Minister had accused Banerjee of adjusting with corruption and misleading people with slogans for change.

Stating that TMC stood for "Terror, Maut and Corruption", Modi had told an election rally "Narada sting operation against Trinamool Congress leaders was shown in TV. It was such big scandal but did Didi take any step against them or expelled them from the party. Didi has adjusted with corruption."

Banerjee also criticised the CPI(M) and Congress, who have forged an alliance in the state to defeat her party in the ongoing assembly poll.

Mocking the CPI(M)-Congress alliance, Banerjee said it was a fight for survival for both the constituents.

Firing a salvo against Congress in WBPCC President Adhir Chowdhury's bastion in Murshidabad district, she said "Congress has no power to fight on its own and is suffering from identity crisis. Thus it needs to take CPI(M) along to cross the bridge.

"CPI(M) is also known to people through various misdeeds during its 34 years-long rule. Both the parties (Congress and CPI-M) are shameless lie... They do not work," Banerjee said urging people to throw them away.

She listed the development projects in Murshidabad and urged the people to have faith in here government for many more of them.
