Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee termed the BJP as Bharatiya Joghonno (bad) Party at an election rally here on Sunday.
“I was also a Lok Sabha member for seven times and I have seen many Prime Ministers. But I have never seen such a ruthless, cruel PM. BJP is a party of monsters and demons who only believes in divisions and riots,” the West Bengal CM was quoted as saying at the rally in East Midnapore’s Nandakumar by news agency IANS.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, also in West Bengal to campaign for the state Assembly Elections due in 10 days’ time, launched a blistering attack on Trinamool Congress government.
Modi said that where there is a scheme, there is a scam in West Bengal.
Modi on Sunday said ‘asol paribartan’ (real change) in the state would ensure that the benefits of Centre’s schemes reach the poor.
“BJP will bring the ‘asol paribartan’ in Bengal. The game of corruption, the game of syndicate and the game of cut money will come to an end. After the BJP forms the government, Maa’er pujo hobe, maatir tilak hobe aar manusher somman hobe! (The worship of Goddess Durga will happen, the land of Bengal and its people will be respected),” Modi said at an election rally in Bankura district.
“Where there is a scheme, there’s a scam in Bengal…Didi, you keep saying khela hobe (the game is on) while people of Bengal have decided that this time khela shesh hobe (the game will end this time)… Didi jacche asol paribartan ashche (Didi is going and real change is coming),” the PM pointed out.
