Prime Minister Narendra Modi today (Sunday, April 7) addressed a political rally in West Bengal’s Cooch Behar, slamming the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government, PM Said, ‘Didi’ (Mamata Banerjee) is not able to sleep at night. She is taking out her frustration and anger on officials and the election commission.
“The centre approved projects worth crores for Cooch Behar. It appeared impossible but it’s possible now. The more the “lotus” will bloom in West Bengal, the stronger your voice will be. The fight for your rights will get stronger,” PM said.
“Didi has put a break on free treatment for the poor under Ayushman Yojana and on financial assistance to farmers. Even I would not have thought that ‘Didi’ (Mamata Banerjee) would take this path. She took a short cut. She adopted all the shortcomings of the left herself, and built a dangerous model based on politics and crime. After the rule of communists ended, no one would have thought the government here would be run like this. These people have defamed West Bengal with the Saradha scam,” he added.
“In Tripura, we destroyed the model of Left and we gave priority to development. However, Didi seems to have taken cues from them and borrowed their ways,” he said.
It has been witnessed earlier that Yogi Adityanath’s chopper was denied to land in West Bengal, so that he may not address the people there and even Amit Shah’s helicopter was also denied permission, citing security as the issue. And all these incidents were not taken well by the BJP workers who then alleged Bengal CM of doing dictatorship in the state.
Even in today’s rally, venue with limited space was allotted so that not many people can attend the rally. Criticising TMC government over all such issues, TMC leader Mukul Roy said, “This is what happens in Bengal each time. Police and administration are always creating hurdles. They gave us permission and yet this is what we get. This is against democracy and we demand action against the police superintendent.”
Responding to the Mukul Roy’s statement, TMC leader Rabindranath Ghosh said, “We have already dismantled portion of our structure as a show of courtesy for the PM. But people like Mukul Roy cannot acknowledge it. People of Cooch Behar will give them a befitting reply. There is no place for communalism here.”
