Addressing a good election rally here, Modi said, “Accepting defeat, Didi has already started questioning EVMs (electronic voting machines), which brought them to power 10 years ago.”
Banerjee is calling on party workers to monitor the possibility of tampering on EVMs.
He claimed that wall posters planted by TMC showed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee kicking him on the head.
There is a long tradition of cartoons and graffiti for political messages in West Bengal.
He said, “I always bow my head in the service of 130 crore people of the country, Didi can put her foot on my head and kick it, but I will not allow them to fulfill the dreams of the people of Bengal ,”.
Modi claimed that since the scams cannot be done in the direct benefit transfer schemes of Ayushman Bharat, PM-Kisan and the Center, the TMC government here did not implement them in West Bengal.
He said that the BJP runs on schemes, TMC runs on scams.
Modi said that Mamta Banerjee has played with the lives of the people of Bengal for 10 years, but now her ‘khela’ (game) will end and ‘Vikas’ (development) will begin.
