Addressing a rally in Krishnagar on Saturday, the PM alleged that TMC has become synonymous with “atrocities” and “betrayal”. “The way TMC is working here, they have disappointed the people of West Bengal. People have continuously voted for TMC but this party has become another name for atrocities and betrayal”, the PM said.

TMC wants to keep the people of Bengal poor so that its politics and game continues…,” PM Modi said The latest attack came after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called on Prime Minister Modi in Kolkata on Friday.
