Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public rally at Purulia on Thursday to bolster the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) campaign ahead of the crucial assembly polls in West Bengal.
While addressing a rally in Purulia, Modi said, ”Fortunate to be here in Bengal. ”
Launching a scathing attack on Mamata Banerjee, PM Modi said, ”TMC’s governance has led to an acute water crisis in Purulia. Water shortage is so rampant here that farmers and Adivasis don’t even get enough water to do farming. Women here have to travel far and wide to get drinking water. ‘Didi’ has to account for all this.”
”This land is a witness to Lord Ram and Goddess Sita’s exile. This land has Sitakund. It is also said that when goddess Sita was thirsty, Lord Ram got water from the ground by hitting it with an arrow…It is an irony that Purulia faces water crisis today, ” Modi said.
The Prime minister said, “Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole chaakri hobe. Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole vikas hobe. Didi bole khela hobe, BJP bole shiksha hobe….Khela shesh hobe, vikas aarambh hobe.”
