Lashing out at Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said “speedbreaker didi” has lost her sleep after the first two phases of the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal. Addressing an election rally here in South Dinajpur district, 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 told a well-attended rally.
Expressing anguish over the death of BJP workers in the state, the prime minister said that each and every people as well as party workers of the state will be delivered justice. He alleged that Bengal has become the land of goons where people openly loot under the Trinamool's rule. He assured that crime would be flushed out when the BJP comes to power in the state.
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 neighbouring country are campaigning for the TMC. This was done by the party to appease the minority community," Modi said.
The prime minister criticised Banerjee for seeking proof of the Balakot air strikes in Pakistan, and asked her to, instead, collect evidence against those behind chit fund scams.
