“For appeasement, TMC is attacking the Constitution. By snatching away the rights of OBCs, reservations are being given to Muslims. Calcutta HC has cancelled these certificates...On June 1, with your vote, we will start the new journey of 'Viksit Bengal'. Today, infiltrators are grabbing the opportunities meant for the youth of Bengal. The whole nation is worried that the demography has changed in border areas of the state. Why did they protest against CAA? Because they want to settle the infiltrators here,” ANI quoted Modi at the rally.

TMC forbidding implementation of central schemes like Ujjwala, Ayushman Bharat

Prime Minister Narendra Modi further accused the TMC of obstructing the implementation of central schemes related to fishermen and beneficiaries of different professions. He also accused Banerjee-led party of “forbidding implementation of central schemes like Ujjwala gas, Ayushman Bharat.” He also accused the party of taking their share of money from Awas, mid-day meal projects.

Later, he also assured Matua community members of Indian citizenship. In another rally in West Bengal's Mathurapur on Wednesday, Modi claimed that the election is led by the people of India from “Kashmir to Kanyakumari” as they have seen the development journey of the past 10 years against the “60 years of misery,” as shown in ANI video shared on X.
