PM Modi addressed two huge rallies in West Bengal’s Asansol and Gangarampur ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls today. He said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”

Addressing his second rally of the day in Gangarampur, PM Modi said, “Gangarampur has 2 holy names, that define our culture, in its own name... But it seems Didi hates names of both Lord Ram and river Ganga. She abuses Indians living in areas near river Ganga. She insults their beliefs, food, language & clothes.”

Attacking Mamata Banerjee for her mis-governance, he said, “Appeasement does not lead to better roads, schools-colleges, industry, employment and more. The dilapidated roads in this region, the lack of hospitals and lack of irrigational facilities is proof enough. In the last 10 years, Didi's government has only promoted locking up of industries and people leaving Bengal for other opportunities. She has only concentrated on betterment of her nephew and filling her own coffers.”

In Gangarampur, PM Modi said that he always addressed her as 'didi' but she abused me from public platforms. “I have no problem with Didi's abuses. Didi, curse me as much as you want, but at least don't forget the culture of Bengal. The people of the country take pride in the rich heritage of Bengal, the eloquence of its people.”

Slamming Didi for nepotism, the Prime Minister reiterated, “TMC government has suppressed the aspirations of every young son and daughter of West Bengal. She, for the career of her nephew has put future of millions of Bengal's youth at stake.”

“BJP's double engine government is making all efforts to make the region an international trading hub, to strengthen the rich heritage of this place, all sort of tourism potential will be harnessed. Maa Ganga has blessed the BJP everywhere in her vast aanchal. After May 2, West Bengal is also going to be added to it,” PM Modi said while concluding his rally in Gangarampur.

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Purulia, West Bengal
May 19, 2024
TMC involved in crimes against women, particularly from SC/ST communities: PM Modi in Purulia, WB
Whether it is TMC or Congress, they are two sides of the same coin: PM Modi in Purulia, WB

In a dynamic public meeting held in Purulia, West Bengal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a large gathering, emphasizing the failures of the INDI alliance and the commitment of the BJP towards the development and upliftment of the region. The Prime Minister outlined the significant discrepancies between the promises made by the TMC and their actions, particularly highlighting issues related to water scarcity, reservations, and corruption.

Addressing the issue of reservations, PM Modi accused the INDI alliance of attempting to undermine the rights of Dalits, backward classes, and tribals. He asserted, "TMC and its allies want to take away the reservations given to Dalits, backward classes, and tribals. Babasaheb Ambedkar was against reservations based on religion. But today, the INDI alliance wants to provide reservations based on religion." PM Modi warned that such actions, including the reallocation of OBC quota reservations to Muslims in Karnataka, pose a threat to the established reservation system.

PM Modi also touched upon the safety and dignity of women in Bengal. He expressed concern over incidents like the one in Sandeshkhali, where he alleged that TMC members were involved in crimes against women, particularly from SC/ST communities. "The crime in Sandeshkhali has forced the sisters of Bengal to think. TMC people do not even consider the sisters of SC/ST families as human," Modi remarked. He urged the women of Bengal to respond to such injustices through their votes.

The Prime Minister strongly condemned the corruption within TMC and Congress, drawing parallels between the two parties. "Whether it is TMC or Congress, they are two sides of the same coin. Look at how mountains of cash are found with Congress ministers and MPs. Similarly, mountains of cash are found with TMC leaders and ministers," he stated. PM Modi assured the public that after June 4th, his administration would intensify its actions against corruption, ensuring that the looted money is returned to the victims.

Highlighting the BJP's efforts to alleviate this issue, he mentioned that over the past 5-6 years, more than 12 crore homes have been connected with tap water. However, he criticized the TMC government for hindering this campaign in areas like Purulia, contrasting it with BJP-led states like Uttar Pradesh, where 30,000 homes are being provided with tap connections daily, compared to less than 5,000 in Bengal.

“When Swami Vivekananda went abroad and spoke about India, lakhs of people became his devotees. But there was also a section that hated India. They insulted Swami Vivekananda and tried to intimidate him. But Swami Vivekananda was on a mission for Mother India and was not one to be scared. Today, a similar situation is happening on the soil of Bengal. The TMC government, which instigates fear, intimidation, and violence during elections, has crossed all limits this time,” said PM Modi underlining TMC’s intentions and its governance model.

“Today, ISKCON, Ram Krishna Mission and Bharat Sevashram Sangh are known for service and morality in the country and the world. But today the Chief Minister of Bengal is openly threatening them... warning them from an open stage! There are lakhs of followers associated with these missions all over the world, their aim is only and only to serve the people… But the Bengal government has pointed a finger at them, threatening them by taking their name! So much courage, just to please its vote bank! To please them, TMC has stooped to such a low level,” he added.

Emphasizing the BJP's commitment to preserving and promoting cultural heritage, PM Modi praised the Chhau dance of Purulia and highlighted the GI tag awarded to Chhau masks under the BJP's efforts. "Purulia and its famous Chhau dance are well-known. It was the BJP that gave the Chhau mask a GI tag, linking it to Purulia's identity," he noted. Furthermore, PM Modi mentioned ongoing infrastructure projects, including the revamping of Purulia Railway Station and the introduction of Vande Bharat trains, to enhance regional connectivity.

In his closing statement, PM Modi called upon the people of Bengal to make a decisive choice in the upcoming elections and urged them to spread the message of development and integrity. "The people of Bengal have made up their minds to clean TMC this time. The trends are already beginning to show this," he declared. Emphasizing the significance of the upcoming elections, he said, "The country will develop when Bengal develops. Every vote cast for the lotus will directly strengthen Modi."
