'For TMC where there’s a scheme, there's a scam: PM Modi attacks Mamata
New Delhi, Mar 21: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday took a dig at West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, saying that BJP wants to implement schemes. But, wherever there is a scheme, TMC sees the opportunity to pull off a scam
Addressing a rally at Bankura, PM Modi said asserted that "asol parivartan" (real change) is coming to Bengal for the development of the state and to fulfil the dreams of the youth, Modi said "bhrastachar-er khela cholbe na" (game of corruption will not continue).
"Anticipating defeat, Didi has already started questioning the EVMs (electronic voting machine) which had brought her to power 10 years back," Modi said addressing a well-attended election rally here.
Banerjee has been calling on party workers to keep an eye on EVM machines fearing tampering of the machines. He claimed that wall posters put up by TMC displayed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee kicking at his head.
West Bengal has a long tradition of cartoons and grafitti for political messages.
"I always bow my head in the service of 130 crore people of the country, Didi can put her leg on my head and kick it but I will not allow her to kick the dreams of Bengal''s people," he said.
Modi claimed that since scams could not be done in Ayushman Bharat, PM -Kisan and direct benefit transfer schemes of the Centre, the TMC government here did not implement these in West Bengal.
"Didi, you have only made hollow announcements in the last 10 years, where is the work you claim to have done? You keep saying 'Khela Hobe' while people of West Bengal have decided 'Khela Shesh Hobe' (the game will end)," he added.
"I think that you people have decided to compete with Brigade Ground. As far as I can see, I can only see people...," said the prime miniter.
"The picture of Bankura today is witness that people of Bengal have decided on May 2, 'didi jacche ashol poriborton ashche, ashol poriborton anche...', he further said.
