Mamata Banerjee govt out to destroy everything in Bengal: PM Modi


The three words Hua to Hua (whatever happened, happened) uttered by the guru (Pitroda) of the Naamdaar (Rahul Gandhi) in front of TV cameras sum up their (Cong) attitude. "The Congress made those accused of serious crimes Union ministers, gave them major responsibilities in the party", he added. "The nation is fed up and crying out ab bahut hua (now, enough is enough)", he said.

Shah exuded confidence that his party has already crossed the majority mark after sixth phase of Lok Sabha polls.

The local unit of the Congress had made elaborate arrangements to pull in the crowds for the roadshow, a party leader said.

With the third highest number of parliamentary seats among Indian states, West Bengal has emerged as a battleground where Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is attempting to make inroads to offset likely losses elsewhere and retain power. "But this is not going to be the last", Kumar said.

Targeting the Congress on terrorism, Modi said: "The Congress has promised to end the sedition law but BJP will not allow it".

"The Congress used the tribal people as vote bank".

While some onlookers compared her roadshow with that of Modi's, Congress workers raised slogans against the prime minister.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Ahmed Patel and CPM leader Sitaram Yechury asked why the poll panel chose to let campaigning continue till 10 pm on Thursday despite having taken note of the violence.

Modi's party is facing stiff opposition from the Trinamool Congress, a regional party that controls the state and is one of Modi's biggest critics.

Banerjee, also the chief minister, said she had never seen this type of EC which is "biased and full of RSS people".

"Modi has travelled the entire country for his campaign, addressing rallies with the help of teleprompters".

While ordinary people were standing in queues during demonetisation, and youth were losing jobs, with small traders and shopkeepers forced to shut down business as a result of GST, 15 rich industrialists pocketed crores of rupees from the Modi government in these five years, said Rahul.

Speaking about his vision for the future, the prime minister said he is committed to ensuring the uplift of the entire eastern India, including in Bihar, and that no citizen lived without a home by 2022.
