PM Modi's rally: Top quotes

Speaking at Medinipur, PM Modi said, “In Bengal, TMC is synonymous with terrorism, corruption, appeasement and nepotism. To appease its vote bank, the TMC is insulting the faith Hindus. The entire country is angry due to the recent derogatory statement made by the CM of West Bengal.”

Talking about the ‘infiltration issue’ in Bengal, the prime minister said, “The appeasement of the TMC has disturbed the demography of Bengal. The infiltration has disturbed the demography of the state. The TMC calls the people from other states 'outsiders'. However, it embraces infiltrators.”

During his Bishnupar rally, PM Modi said, “Modi does not have to do anything for himself. Neither do I have to do anything for any of my nephews nor do I have to leave anything for any brother. I have to work for the people living in the forests of Bankura. I have to leave a developed India as a legacy for the children of poor, Dalit and tribals, so I have come to seek your blessings for the third time.”

While addressing a rally in Jamshedpur, PM Modi accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of using “Maoist language”, leading to investors reconsidering investing in India.

“The language used by the Congress ‘shehzada’ will make any industrialist think 50 times before investing in states ruled by the party... The 'shehzada' is using language spoken by Maoists and is extorting money through innovative methods,” PM Modi said.

Slamming Gandhi for contesting from the Rae Bareli seat, PM Modi said, “His mother (Sonia Gandhi) said that she is handing over her son to Rae Bareli... She could not find even a single party worker devoted to them... The voters of Rae Bareli in turn ask her as to where they were when people were in trouble during the Covid pandemic.”
