Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday attacked the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal’s Purulia, saying that the TMC has made the lives of the people difficult. He said the people of Purulia have been given a life riddled with the water crisis, adding that the Left and TMC governments neglected the industrial development of Purulia.
Taking a swipe at Mamata’s slogan “Khela Hobe”, PM Modi said “Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole chaakri hobe. Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole vikas hobe. Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole shiksha hobe….Khela shesh hobe, vikas aarambh hobe.”
PM Modi also said, “It’s being said ‘Lok Sabha mein TMC half aur iss baar poori saaf’. Seeing this determination, didi is taking out her frustration on me. But for us, she is a daughter like crores of daughters of India. Respect for them is part of our culture”.
PM Modi also added that appeasement and vote bank politics were the reasons behind infiltration in the state.
The first phase of polls to West Bengal and Assam will be held on March 27.
