West Bengal polls: Mamata Banerjee calling BJP leaders outsiders is ‘insult to Netaji’, claims Narendra Modi

Addressing a rally in Sonarpur, Modi added, ‘When British tried to divide us, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose said that India is one. Today, Mamata is going against his ideology’

Sonarpur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday slammed West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for branding BJP leaders as “outsiders” (bohirgato) and said it is an insult to the inclusive ideology of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and principles of Indian Constitution.

Claiming that Bengal’s “Bhumiputra” (son of the soil) will take over as the chief minister after the BJP is voted to power on 2 May, Modi said no Indian is an “outsider” in the state.

“When the British tried to divide us, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose said – India is one, and the hopes and aspirations of every Indian are the same. Today, there is a lot of pain when instead of propagating the ideology of Netaji, TMC and Mamata didi are talking about bohirgato,” he
told an election rally at Sonarpur in South 24 Parganas district.

Didi is talking about outsiders. We are all children of Mother India. No Indian is an outsider here. When BJP forms the government after May 2, a son of the soil will become the chief minister,” he said.

Calling TMC a “taka-maar Company” (an enterprise that loots money), the prime minister asked Banerjee to control her “goons”.

“You keep your TMC goons under check. Explain to them-Modi is here! Their bullying will no longer be tolerated. Bengal doesn’t want violence and terror. Bengal wants education for its daughters and protection, respect and justice for its mothers,” he asserted.

Referring to some TMC leaders’ claim that Banerjee might contest elections from his Lok Sabha seat Varanasi in 2024, Modi mocked the TMC boss, saying this proves that didi has accepted her defeat.

Didi is now looking for a place for herself outside Bengal. The people of Varanasi and Uttar Pradesh are as large-hearted as the people of Bengal. They won’t call her an outsider,” he said.
