People of Bengal will never forgive the Congress and Communists as they are playing with their sentiment by forming an alliance here and fighting neck to neck in Kerala, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Modi was addressing a political rally in Kharagpur on Sunday evening from where the BJP’s state president Dilip Ghosh is contesting in the Assembly elections. Other BJP candidates from West Midnapore district were also present in the first political rally attended by Modi in the state before the Assembly elections here.
Modi said: “People of Bengal are known for their intellect.
“The Congress and Communist seem unaware about the intellect of the people of the state. They are making friendship in West Bengal and wrestling in Kerala. This is insult of the people of Bengal and they will never forgive this.”
Taking a dig at Congress and CPI-M, he said leadership of the party are going for settlements behind curtains in West Bengal when their counterparts in Kerala giving a tough fight against each other.
“They are selfish. They run behind power forgetting all ethics and ideology,” Modi said adding that they have come together to check the growth of BJP in West Bengal.
He said that the Left Front government had ended all possibilities of the state during their 34-year rule. “I have three point agenda. First agenda is development, second one is fast development and third is overall development.
An overall development of the country is not possible if the states in the eastern part do not develop in similar pace with the states in the western part of the country,” he said adding that development of each and every part of the country is important for a sustainable economy.
He said that BJP government came to power in many states those were sick. But the condition of the states revived after the party had formed the government in those states.
Comparing that of the erstwhile Congress government in the Centre, he said that there was not a single case in the past two years when someone has leveled the tag of corruption against his government.
“The auction of coal block was done in such a way that there was no scope of any corruption,” he said after mentioning the sting operation in which some Trinamool Congress leaders were filmed taking money.
He has also mentioned the Saradha chit fund scam.
