BE­NARASI GAUNT­LET?

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Don’t let Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s plain white saris fool you. They are no reflection of the West Ben­gal chief min­is­ter’s fash­ion de­sign­ing skills. Didi has now fixed her painter’s eye on the Be­narasi saris that Ben­gali brides wear on their wed­ding day. The saris will now be made by state hand­loom cor­po­ra­tion, Tan­tuja. A state min­is­ter hints that it’s be­cause the saris come from Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s con­stituency. Hav­ing taken him on over his de­mon­eti­sa­tion move, will Didi now wage a trade war?
