New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed election rallies in West Bengal and Assam, which are going for assembly polls.
He tore apart ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and Opposition Congress in Assam.
He first addressed a rally in Bokakhat in Assam and later in Bankura in West Bengal.
Here are highlights PM Modi’s speech in Bokakhat rally:
“Today Assam is moving ahead to reach new heights with full potential in the NDA rule. Today, peace has been established in Assam and stability has come under the NDA’s government”
“Today we are also developing river waterways of the country as corridors of India’s economic prosperity. Of these, work is also going on in Assam on very large river waterways”
“Our government changed the law made about bamboo during British rule. It has benefited people, farmers and entrepreneurs associated with the bamboo craft in Assam”
“When there was a Congress government at the centre and in the state at the same time, there was double neglect, double corruption and double infiltration: They (Congress) had given false guarantees of providing employment and women empowerment”
“With the NDA government at the center and in the state, the power of double engine is pushing Assam forward. Now the speed of infrastructure is also doubled, because the state government as well as central government are involved in development”
Here are highlights of PM Modi’s speech in Bankura rally:
“BJP will bring the ‘Ashol Poriborton’ (Real Change) in Bengal.
The game of Corruption – Cholbe naa! (Won’t be allowed)
The game of Syndicate – Cholbe naa! (Won’t be allowed)
The game of cut money – Cholbe naa! (Won’t be allowed)”
“BJP runs on schemes, while TMC runs on scams!TMC always finds a way to do a scam. Their mantra is ‘wherever there is a scheme, there will be a scam’.”
“Didi used to think that no one would question her. But today, the entire Bengal is asking her – where is the water? Where are the tap connections? Why isn’t water in agricultural lands? Why can farmers here only have one crop per season? Why are irrigation facilities poor?”
“You may attack me, didi, but I will not let you attack the people of Bengal, the state’s development, the dreams of the people of Bengal and the SC/STs of the state”
“I call upon the first time voters to vote and make the dream of Sonar Bangla come true. Left, Congress & TMC have wasted a lot of time of your previous generations. I can’t let your futures be ruined. Due to these three parties, Bengal hasn’t developed at a pace it should’ve”.
