PM Modi in Bengal, Assam LIVE updates: In his first election rally in West Bengal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government in the state. Addressing a rally in Haldia, he said, “The party of maa, maati, maanus is making farmers suffer, while you can see who is working to benefit farmers.”

Modi said the Bengal govt joined the PM Kisan scheme reluctantly, but the Centre is unable to transfer benefits because the details of Bengal farmers have not been provided.

He said Mamata is irked if you ask her about development and chant Jai Shri Ram, “but does not say a word at international conspiracies to defame the nation. “Attempts are being made to target India’s image, but has Mamata reacted?”

Earlier today, he visited Assam, another poll-bound state, where he laid the foundation stones of two hospitals and launched ‘Asom Mala’, a programme for state highways and major district roads in Dhekiajuli, Sonitpur district.

Modi claimed that a global ‘conspiracy’ was afoot to defame the country’s tea industry and none behind it will be spared. On a visit to Assam, the PM said that the state would soon get colleges for medical and technical education where the mode of learning will be in the local language.

The PM said that Northeast has left behind its legacy of violence, deprivation, tension, discrimination, favouritism and conflict and is now advancing on the path of development.
