WB Polls: 'Didi stood like wall in front of development', says PM Modi

While addressing a public rally in Asansol on April 17, Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee by saying that she had always stood like a wall in front of development and betrayed the people in the name of development. PM Modi said, "In last 10 yrs, Didi betrayed you in the name of development. She stood like a wall in front of development. Centre offered facility of free healthcare up to Rs 5 Lakh, she became a wall. Centre formed laws to help refugees, she opposed this too." "Centre formed law to free Muslim women from triple talaq, she became angry. Centre formed law to free farmers from middlemen, she opposed this...Bengal wants double engine government and not the one that blocks development," he added.
