PM Modi questions WB Govt over Bandemataram Bhavan's condition

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Sahaganj area of West Bengal's Hooghly district on February 22. While addressing the public rally, PM Modi said, "I am being told that Bandemataram Bhavan, where Bankim Chandra Ji lived for 5 years, is in very bad condition. This is the same Bhavan where he brainstormed to write Vande Mataram, the poem which gave a new lease of life to the freedom struggle." "Failure to keep the place of the creator of such 'amar gaan' in a good state is an injustice to West Bengal's pride and there is huge politics involved in this- the politics which focuses on vote bank, not patriotism; appeasement, not Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas," he added. "This kind of politics stops people of Bengal from performing Durga puja and visarjan. People of Bengal will never forgive those who insult their culture for vote bank politics," PM Modi further attacked TMC led West Bengal Government.
