Didi has never given a call for maximum turnout and peaceful polling: PM Modi in Barasat
From every corner of Bengal I can hear "Didi to go on May 2": PM Modi in West Bengal’s Barasat

PM Modi addressed three mega rallies in West Bengal’s Bardhaman, Kalyani and Barasat today. Speaking at the first rally the PM said, “Two things are very popular here- rice and mihi dana. In Bardhaman, everything is sweet. Then tell me why Didi doesn't like Mihi Dana. Didi's bitterness, her anger is increasing every day because in half of West Bengal's polls, TMC is wiped out. People of Bengal hit so many fours and sixes that BJP has completed century in four phases of assembly polls.”

Talking about Mamata Banerjee’s frustration, he asserted, “In Nandigram, Didi is clean-bowled. In Bengal, Didi's inning is over. Didi's plan is failed. Didi's Khela is understood by Bengal people. Those who were thinking of playing khela with you had to face khela themselves. Won't Didi be angry then. Didi knows if she goes from here, she will never come back. That is why she is so angry.”

PM Modi accused TMC leaders of 'insulting' SC community, the PM remarked, “People close to Didi have started calling them beggars. Baba Saheb's soul must have been distressed to hear the bitter words of Didi. April 14 is Babasaheb Ambedkar's Jayanti. Didi has committed sin by insulting Dalits, SCs. She calls herself 'Royal Bengal Tiger'. Such comments on SCs cannot be given by any TMC leader without Didi's will.”

“In Raja Ram Mohan Roy's Bengal, you've insulted Dalits. In Sri Sri Harichand Thakur's Bengal, you've insulted Dalits. In Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa's Bengal, you've insulted Dalits. In Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar's Bengal, you've insulted Dalits. Nobody will forget this,” he added.

“Close associates of Didi has started saying that people who vote for BJP will be thrown out. Do you approve of this sort of language, these lines, this arrogance? Is this democracy? If you want to express anger, do it at me. Bengal doesn't need Didi's administration. Bengal wants development. It wants BJP government. Didi has ruled Bengal for 10 years,” said PM Modi while campaigning in Bardhaman.

Slamming Mamata Didi’s politics of hate, the Prime Minister stated, “BJP's mantra is to serve people. TMC mantra is to loot people. During these elections, we also lost Shobha Mazumdar. The cruelty with which she was beaten by TMC goons is a picture we can never forget. In Cooch Behar, people who died were also sons. But Didi's policies has snatched many sons from mothers.”

Reciting his favorite line Didi o didi, PM Modi reiterated, “Didi, If you want to unload your anger, I am here. Abuse me all you want. But don't insult Bengal's dignity and tradition. Bengal won't tolerate your arrogance, tolabaaz, cut money syndicate because people want 'Ashol Poribartan' now.”

“Due to Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee and Babasahab Ambedkar, India got Jal Vidyut policy. Bardhaman is called "Dhan ka Katora'. But here people are living in misery. There is no storage provision and no right price for produce. Only Didi's syndicate is earning. After BJP forms governmentt in Bengal, farmers will be benefit more from Crop Insurance Scheme,” he said in Bardhaman’s rally.

Addressing a huge rally in Kalyani, Prime Minister Modi asserted, “Bengal people have decided that on May 2nd, Didi will go and BJP will come. Half of the elections have made TMC's complete washout certain.”

Continuing his tirade against Mamata Banerjee’s hatred towards SCs-STs, PM Modi said, “Perturbed with fear of losing, Didi and her party are crossing all lines. Her people are abusing SCs, STs, OBCs only because they support BJP. Seeing her defeat, Didi has strategised to stop them from voting and facilitate her goons to rig votes. But Didi, listen carefully you are not given right to snatch vote from anybody.”

In Kalyani, PM Modi said, “Didi also did not like my going to Orakandi. Didi also raised questions on this. Didi, for last 10 years how you have shown hatred towards dalits and OBCs of Bengal, this country has been watching. You have neither done anything for my brothers and sisters of Matua society nor for the Namasudra society.”

“Mamata Didi has continuously stopped the progressive schemes here that have been implemented in rest of India. Because of people like Didi, visions of Syama Prasad Mookerjee couldn’t be fulfilled. We are working on "Har ghar Jal', without any tolabaaz. Didi didn't conduct any municipal elections and gave all power to tolabaazs,” the PM said while addressing a huge rally.

Our aim is to make Kalyani and other places nearby into 'Atmanirbhar Bharat'. Your demand for an AIIMS has been fulfilled. Didi had to just join AIIMS to station but she couldn't even do that. If a poor is sick, should he get help or not? Every government should do it or not? India government is ready to spend Rs 5 lakh, but Didi didn't let that happen also. Why is she angry at poor?, asks PM Modi.

Seeing the huge support from public in his last rally of the day at Barasat, the Prime Minister said, “The way you switched on flashlight of your mobile & illuminated this place, it looked like May 2 has come today for you. Your love for me bothers Didi a lot. The way you have confirmed BJP's victory after 4 phases of voting, has made her furious.”

PM Modi questioned the gathering that why Didi had never given a call for maximum turnout and peaceful polling. “Because she knows that high turnout will favour BJP,” he said addressing the huge public meeting in Barasat.

“For today's situation of Didi and her party, it has been said 'vinash kale viprit buddhi'. This is why Didi has picked up a kind of open fight against Modi and with Bengal's SC, ST, OBC communities,” he added

Addressing the rally in Barasat, he stated, “The Central government is opening fast track courts for heinous crimes against women. Didi's government has stopped implementation of even that in West Bengal. Each farmer in state will get Rs 18,000 in arrears if we win under PM-Kisan scheme.” He also said work on Metro projects in Kolkata and adjoining areas will be fast-tracked.

Concluding his speech, PM Modi asked the people of West Bengal to come out in large numbers to vote for 'Sonar Bangla' and exercise your democratic rights in ongoing elections. “From every corner of Bengal I can hear "Didi to go on May 2,” he said.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the News 9 Global Summit in New Delhi today. The theme of the Summit is ‘India: Poised for the Big Leap’.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said TV 9’s reporting team represents the diversity of India. Their multi-language news platforms made TV 9 a representative of India's vibrant democracy, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister threw light on the theme of the Summit - ‘India: Poised for the Big Leap’, and underlined that a big leap can be taken only when one is filled with passion and enthusiasm. He said that the theme highlights India’s self-confidence and aspirations owing to the creation of a launchpad of 10 years. In these 10 years, the Prime Minister said, the mindset, self-confidence and good governance have been the major factors of transformation.

The Prime Minister underlined the centrality of the commission citizen in the destiny of India. He emphasized that a mindset of defeat can not lead to victory, in this light, he said that the change in mindset and leap that India has taken is incredible. PM Modi recalled the negative view exposed by the leadership of the past and the overhang of corruption, scams, policy paralysis and dynasty politics had shook the foundation of the nation. The Prime Minister mentioned the turnaround and India entering into the top 5 economies of the world. “India of 21st century India does not think small. Whatever we do, we do best and biggest. World is amazed and sees the benefit of moving with India”, he said.

Highlighting the achievements of the last 10 years compared to the ten years before 2014, the Prime Minister mentioned the record increase in FDI from 300 billion US dollars to 640 billion US dollars, India’s digital revolution, trust in India’s Covid vaccine and the growing number of taxpayers in the country which symbolizes the increasing trust of the people in the government. Speaking about mutual fund investments in the country, the Prime Minister informed that people had invested Rs 9 lakh crore in 2014 while 2024 has seen a meteoric rise to Rs 52 lakh crores. “This proves to the citizens that the nation is moving forward with strength”, PM Modi continued, “The level of trust toward self and the government is equal.”

The Prime Minister said that the government's work culture and governance are the cause of this turn-around. “Government offices are no longer a problem but are becoming allies of the countrymen”, he said.

The Prime Minister said that for this leap, a change of gear was needed. He gave examples of long pending projects such as Saryu Canal Project in Uttar Pradesh, Sardar Sarovar Yojana, and Krishna Koena Pariyojana of Maharashtra which were lying pending for decades and were completed by the government. The Prime Minister drew attention to the Atal Tunnel whose foundation stone was laid in 2002 but remained incomplete till 2014, and it was the present government that accomplished the work with its inauguration in 2020. He also gave the example of Bogibeel Bridge in Assam, commissioned in 1998 but finally completed 20 years later in 2018, and Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor commissioned in 2008 but completed 15 years later in 2023. “Hundreds of such pending projects were completed after the present government came to power in 2014”, he added. The Prime Minister also explained the impact of regular monitoring of the big projects under PRAGATI and informed that in the last 10 years projects worth 17 lakh crore have been reviewed under the mechanism. The Prime Minister gave examples of a few projects that were completed very quickly such as Atal Setu, Parliament Building, Jammu AIIMS, Rajkot AIIMs, IIM Sambalpur, New terminal of Trichy Airport, IIT Bhilai, Goa Airport, undersea cable up to Lakshadweep, Banas Dairy at Varanasi, Dwarka Sudarshan Setu. Foundation stones of all these projects were laid by the Prime Minister and he dedicated them to the nation also. “When there is willpower and respect for the taxpayers' money, only then the nation moves forward and gets ready for a big leap”, he added.

The Prime Minister illustrated the scale by listing the activities of just one week. He mentioned a massive educational push from Jammu with dozens of higher education institutes like IIT, IIMs and IIIT on 20th February, on 24 th February he dedicated 5 AIIMs from Rajkot, and more than 2000 projects including revamping more than 500 Amrit Stations was done this morning. This streak will continue during his visit to three states in the coming two days, he informed. “We lagged in the first, second and third revolutions, now we have to lead the world in the fourth revolution”, the Prime Minister said.

He continued by furnishing the details of the nation's progress. He gave figures like 2 new colleges daily, a new university every week, 55 patents and 600 trademarks every day, 1.5 lakh Mudra loans daily, 37 startups daily, daily UPI transaction of 16 thousand crore rupees, 3 new Jan Aushadhi Kendras per day, construction of 14 KM road everyday, 50 thousand LPG connections everyday, one tap connection every second and 75 thousand people came out of poverty everyday.

Referring to a recent report on the consumption pattern of the country, the Prime Minister highlighted the fact that poverty has reached its lowest level till date into single digit. As per data, he said that consumption has increased by 2.5 times as compared to a decade ago as people's capacity to spend on different goods and services has increased. “In the last 10 years, consumption in villages has increased at a much faster rate than that in cities. This means that the economic power of the village people is increasing, they are having more money to spend”, he said.

The Prime Minister said that the government has developed infrastructure keeping rural needs in mind resulting in better connectivity, new employment opportunities and income for women. This strengthened rural India, he said. “For the first time in India, food expenditure has become less than 50 per cent of the total expenditure. That is, the family which earlier used to spend all its energy in procuring food, today its members are able to spend money on other things”, the Prime Minister added.

Pointing out the trend of vote bank politics adopted by the previous government, the Prime Minister underscored that India has broken out of the scarcity mindset in the last 10 years by putting an end to corruption and ensuring that the benefits of development are distributed equally. “We believe in governance of saturation instead of politics of scarcity”, PM Modi emphasized, “We have chosen the path of santushti (contentment) of the people instead of tushtikaran.” This, the Prime Minister said, has been the mantra of the government for the past decade. “This is Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas”, the Prime Minister said, elaborating that the government has transformed vote bank politics into politics of performance. Highlighting the Modi Ki Guarantee Vehicle, the Prime Minister said that the government of today is going door-to-door and providing facilities to the beneficiaries. “When saturation becomes a mission, there is no scope for any kind of discrimination”, PM Modi exclaimed.

“Our government is moving forward keeping the principle of Nation First paramount”, the Prime Minister remarked, as he mentioned the critical decisions taken by the government to resolve old challenges. He touched upon the abrogation of Article 370, construction of the Ram Mandir, ending of triple talaq, Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam, One Rank One Pension, and creation of the post of Chief of Defense Staff. He underlined that the government completed all such incomplete tasks with the thinking of Nation First.

The Prime Minister stressed the need to prepare the India of the 21st century and threw light on the rapidly progressing plans. “From space to semiconductor, digital to drones, AI to clean energy, 5G to Fintech, India has today reached the forefront of the world”, he said. He highlighted India’s growing prowess as one of the biggest forces in digital payments in the global world, the fastest-growing country in Fintech Adoption Rate, the first country to land a rover on the south pole of the Moon, among the leading countries in the world in Solar Installed Capacity, leaving Europe behind in the expansion of 5G network, rapid progress in the semiconductor sector and rapid developments on future fuels like green hydrogen.

Concluding the address, the Prime Minister said, “Today India is working hard towards its bright future. India is futuristic. Today everyone says – India is the future.” He also drew attention to the importance of the next 5 years. He reaffirmed the belief to take India's potential to new heights in the third term and wished that the coming 5 years be years of progress and praise for India’s journey to Viksit Bharat.
