Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked the voters in West Bengal to put brakes on “speed-breaker Didi” Mamata Banerjee’s rule and end the “politics of threat, loot and corruption”.
“Don’t you want this politics of threat, loot and corruption to end? Then come out from every household in every village, town, nook and corner and give the Trinamool a befitting reply for unleashing a rule of terror. Rise up Bengal give your response on May 23,” Modi said addressing a rally here.
“Bullying of Trinamool will not prevent its massive defeat, Bengal is with the BJP,” Modi claimed.
The PM further said, “speed-breaker didi” has lost her sleep after the first two phases of the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal.
PM Modi accused the chief minister of fooling people in the name of ”ma, mati and manush” (mother, land and people).
“Speedbreaker didi has lost her sleep after the reports that came in post the first and second phase of polling in the state,” the prime minister said.
He also flayed Banerjee for allowing people from the “neighbouring country” to campaign for the Trinamool Congress in the state.
“It is shameful that people from the neighbouring country are campaigning for the TMC. This was done by the party to appease the minority community,” PM Modi said.
The prime minister also criticised Mamata for seeking proof of the Balakot airstrikes in Pakistan and asked her to, instead, collect evidence against those behind chit fund scams.
West Bengal is going to the polls in all the seven phases in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
