Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday sharpened his attack on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, accusing her of violence and abuse and saddling the state’s youth with unemployment, riots and lathis.

PM Modi also said during a rally in the poll-bound state’s Krishnanagar area in the Nadia district that Mamata Banerjee defames voters and undermines electronic voting machines (EVMs). "Today, Didi is abusing the central corps. Today, Didi is abusing EVM. The situation is now at a stage where Didi has started abusing the polling agents of her own party today,” the Prime Minister said.

“She is so desperate that she is defaming Bengal's voters. Didi, the people of Bengal don't expect you to have sensitivity any more," PM Modi warned.

"Respected Didi, remember, this is Bengal of 2021. Now you will not be allowed to play with democracy. The more you are trying to frighten the people of Bengal, the more people are coming together to defeat you,” Modi said in his direct jibe at Mamata.

The Prime Minister also launched a scathing attack on the state's ruling party. “What did the TMC government give to the youth of Bengal—unemployment, riots, lathis, and now, insults. Even the minority classes that Didi continued to serve are also in distress due to cut money and syndicate,” he said.

The BJP has come into existence with the blessings of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee, PM Modi said. The Prime Minister added that his party is fortunate that the people of Bengal are going to give them the opportunity to serve Bengal.

"Here in every particle, there are stories of our faith, our philosophy, our spirituality. The BJP is the only party in the country whose ideological energy has been getting from the soil of West Bengal," PM Modi said in his address.

"After decades of a long wait, the Mahayagya of Asol Poriborton has started in Bengal," PM Modi said. "After years of bloodshed, fear, atrocity and goondaism, Bengal will now walk towards peace and progress to fulfil the vision of 'Sonar Bangla'. This land will be freed of mafia, cow traffickers and infiltration," he added.

Voting is underway in 44 constituencies in five districts during the fourth phase of the West Bengal Assembly Elections. Among the 44 constituencies, nine are in Howrah, 10 in Hooghly, 11 in South 24 Parganas, five in Alipurduar and nine in Cooch Behar. Votes will be counted on May 2.
