PM Modi Renews Attack on Mamata Government: TMC Now Stands for ‘Tu, Main aur Corruption’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC), accusing them of creating an environment conducive to “crime and corruption” in West Bengal. Addressing a rally in Krishnagar on Saturday, PM Modi asserted that the TMC has now become synonymous with “atrocities” and “betrayal.” He alleged that the TMC’s primary focus lies not on the development of Bengal but on fostering corruption, nepotism, and betrayal. According to him, the TMC aims to perpetuate its political agenda and games by keeping the people of Bengal impoverished.

PM Modi’s address follows a meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata on Friday, amid escalating tensions between the BJP and TMC, with Sandeshkhali emerging as a focal point of contention.

Sandeshkhali Incident and Political Strife;
The recent arrest of Shahjahan Sheikh, accused of “sexual assault and land grabbing” in Sandeshkhali, has exacerbated the ongoing political turmoil in the region.

PM Modi took a swipe at Mamata Banerjee over the Sandeshkhali incident, stating, “In Bengal, it’s the criminals who decide when they should be arrested, not the police.”

He commended the women of Sandeshkhali for their resilience in protesting against years of oppression and violence, which eventually compelled the ruling party to take notice. PM Modi also applauded the state leaders of his party in West Bengal for standing by these women in their protests.

Infrastructure Development Projects;
PM Modi unveiled a slew of development projects worth Rs 15,000 crore aimed at propelling West Bengal towards economic growth and job creation. These projects include the inauguration of the Farakka-Raiganj section of NH-12 and the Flue Gas Desulfurisation (FGD) system at Mejia Thermal Power Station. Additionally, the foundation stone for the Raghunathpur Thermal Power Station Phase II was laid during the ceremony.

Emphasizing West Bengal’s potential as the “eastern gate” of India, PM Modi pledged to initiate several projects to boost employment and economic growth in the state.

Rail Infrastructure Revitalization:
In a bid to enhance Bengal’s rail infrastructure, PM Modi inaugurated four rail projects worth over Rs 940 crore. He highlighted the government’s efforts to bridge the gap in railway infrastructure and expressed commitment to further investments in the sector.

Ambitious Goals for Lok Sabha Elections PM Modi set ambitious goals for the BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in West Bengal, urging the people to ensure a victory on all 42 seats. He expressed confidence in the party’s prospects and rallied the crowd with the slogan ‘NDA sarkar, 400 paar’.
