Scooters And One Wheels

PM Modi quips, “As an alternative of Bhowanipore, Mamata’s scooter determined to fall in Nandigram.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a determined attack on the TMC on Sunday, proposing to Prime Minister Mamata Banerjee because of the deteriorating law and order situation in Bengal, corruption and the state government’s “inability” to provide relief to the poor. In his address at the Brigade Parade Ground, which was inundated by a large crowd, PM Modi attended CM Mamata Banerjee’s scooter ride in Calcutta to protest rising fuel prices.

PM Modi sarcastically dug his way into the scooter ride, quipping, “We don’t want anyone to get hurt, but if the Scooty has decided to fall into Nandigram, what can we do?”

The Prime Minister was referring to Mamata Banerjee’s decision to run Nandigram’s general election instead of Bhowanipore. In Nandigram, the TMC boss and her former adjutant Suvendu Adhikari – whose stronghold is the seat of Vidhan Sabha – will block horns. PM Modi listed the actions of the BJP-led government at the center, highlighting that the government has taken steps to uplift women and the poor in society.

“You are the daughter of India”

“Didi, you are the daughter of India, not just from Bengal! When you took over Scooty a few days ago, everyone prayed that you were safe! It’s good that you didn’t fall, otherwise the state in which the Scooty was prepared to have become their enemy, “said Modi.

“Glad you didn’t fall when your Scooty turned towards Nandigram instead of heading towards Bhawanipore. We wish everyone the best, we don’t want anyone to get hurt, but if the Scooty decided to go to Nandigram fall then what can we do? ” he added.

PM Modi slammed Mamata Banerjee for putting her nephew – Abhishek Banerjee – above the people of Bengal, stating that the TMC chief had indulged in the dynasty policies of Congress, which she had revolted against. “Today the youth of Bengal only ask one question? Didi, even after 10 years in power, they have chosen you as ‘Didi’ of the Bengali, but you have limited yourself to just one nephew of yours. Instead of fulfilling the wishes of the People, why did you bother to meet your nephew’s needs? Even you couldn’t leave the dynasty policies of Congress against which you revolted, “he said at his rally.
