Throwing a challenge to BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, two senior leaders of West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress Tuesday said they would put in their papers if he could prove his allegation that a painting by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was sold for Rs.1.80 crore. Trinamool national spokesperson Derek O'Brien said,"Mr Modi, you should prove what you have said. If you can, I will resign from the Rajya Sabha. If you can't, you should apologize to the nation, Bengal and everybody."Repeating his earlier attack on Modi, O'Brien called him "the butcher of Gujarat".
