April 17, 2021
People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues


Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi 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.”

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.”
