Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a sharp attack at the Mamata Banerjee-led government in West Bengal saying that the state needs a “double engine government, not the one that halts development”.
Addressing a public meeting in Asansol, he said, “The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by didi’s government.”
The Prime Minister further asserted that the BJP government, if voted to power, will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. He alleged that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has stood as a wall between West Bengal’s people and central welfare schemes, depriving them of benefits
“This region has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From cycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass – people come from all across India to work in these factories. People used to come here for employment but today people from here are migrating. Didi, who speaks of Ma Mati Manush, has spread ‘mafia raj’ here,” he said.
The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues, including two recent meetings over the emerging COVID-19 situation in the country. “The Central government has convened meetings to discuss several topics many times, but didi does not attend these meetings citing some or the other reason,” he said.
PM Modi further said that the TMC chief’s politics is not limited to just “protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance”.
“After four phases, TMC is broken to pieces and `Didi, `bhatija will be vanquished after eight phases of elections (are completed),” he said.
PM Modi also claimed the Trinamool Congress supremo has an old habit of doing politics with dead bodies and has been trying to politicise the “unfortunate” death of five people at Sitalkuchi in Cooch Behar district on April 10.
“The truth is that Didi thought of her own political gain from the death of people in Cooch Behar she has an old habit of doing politics with dead bodies,” he alleged.
Voting in the industrial town will be held in the seventh phase on April 26.
