Prime Minister Narendra Modi today (Monday, May 6), addressed a political rally in West Bengal’s Tamluk, where he slammed state CM Mamata Banerjee, saying, ‘Didi’ is arresting those who chants ‘Jai Shri Ram’.
“I tried to speak to Mamata Didi regarding the cyclone situation twice but she did not respond. She is least bothered about the people of Bengal. I wanted to take stock of the situation with the administration but arrogant Didi refused it too,” PM Modi said.
“Recently, Pakistan-sponsored Masood Azhar was designated a global terrorist by the United Nation. It’s a huge victory of India against the terrorist. It’s a matter of pride for the country however, Didi failed to comment on this topic. This can be attributed to her vote bank politics. She is bound to lose in these elections,” PM Modi said.
“Mamata Didi is so frustrated these days that she doesn’t even want to talk or hear about God. The situation is such that Didi is arresting and jailing those who are chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’,” PM Modi said.
“Amid this politics of Didi, I assure the people of West Bengal again that the Central Government is standing with the people of West Bengal with full power and is supporting the state government in every way,” Modi said.
“You have given the opportunity to dynasty, Leftist and a government that suppresses people. Give one opportunity to a party that is committed to the development. Your one vote will pressurize Didi. Your one vote will show dynastic parties, Leftist and a tyrannical government their right place,” Modi said.
Meanwhile, speaking to news agency ANI, PM Modi hailed Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for the preparation undertaken by the state in view of Cyclone Fani.
“Communication was very good between the state and the central government. I was also monitoring. The way people of Odisha complied with every instruction of government is praiseworthy,” PM Modi said.
This is the first meeting between the prime minister and the state’s chief minister after a heated election campaign in Odisha. Polling of Odisha, to elect Members of Parliament (MPs) and the state Assembly members has concluded. Results will be declared on May 23.
