Ahead of the first phase of polling in West Bengal assembly election, PM Modi addressed public meeting at Kanthi, West Bengal today. PM Modi said, “This is a very crucial time for first time voters and youth aged around 25 in Bengal. They have the responsibility to build the future of Bengal and thus, 'Ashol Poriborton' is the need of the hour.

Repeating his slogan for 'Ashol Poribortan', PM said that people of West Bengal have decided to bid farewell to TMC government on May 2. “The relief sent by the Central government got stuck in the nephew window. Today, the entire WB is asking - Who looted the relief material of Amphan? Who looted the foodgrains sent for the poor,” PM Modi asked while campaigning in the poll-bound state.

Lashing out at Mamata Banerjee, he said, "Everyone has understood what Didi is doing. She just makes empty promises before the elections and is not seen thereafter. Didi, even the children of West Bengal have understood your 'khela'. Thus on May 2, West Bengal will show door to Didi. 'Didi' talking about 'Duare Sarkar', but she will be shown door on May 2.”

PM Modi also said that steps will be taken for the women in the state. "We will take steps like the ones taken by the central government for the betterment of women. This was keeping in tandem with the party's manifesto that was released by Union home minister Amit Shah which emphasizes on women's safety, providing better healthcare services and extending schemes for women in the state,” he said.

"BJP's Bengal manifesto made keeping in mind the development and aspirations of people of Bengal. Our party will cut the corruption in every scheme of the government and will ensure that direct benefits reach the people. There will be no middlemen," he added.

Assuring the people of Bengal, PM Modi remarked, “We will work for Bengal’s bright future,” he assured the people. ‘TMC'er khela sesh hobe, Vikash arambho hobe’. The development of Bengal is BJP's commitment. We will work very hard for Bengal's future... ‘Bangla chai, BJP sarkar’.”

PM Modi spoke at length about the development projects initiated by the Modi government, he asserted, “The Central government is taking steps to modernize the Petuaghat Fishing Harbour. The sea's coast has immense economic activities associated to tourism. There are also possibilities of cruise tourism. You have assets such as the Digha beach. The Central government is promoting tourism with several initiatives. Medinipur will benefit a lot from such initiatives with a double-engine government in place.”

Exuding confidence of forming the government in West Bengal, he remarked, “Didi's government has given darkness to the state in last 10 years, BJP’s double engine government will give Sonar Bangla.”
