“You will definitely make BJP-NDA cross the 400 mark. But write that in this election Congress will get fewer seats than its princes,” Modi said of 53-year-old Rahul Gandhi. Said without naming names.

Modi was addressing an election rally in Chinsoora, Hooghly. He addressed four back-to-back rallies in Barrackpore, Chinsoora, Arambagh and Sankrail in the eastern state.

Two BJP supporters brought paintings of the prime minister sharing moments with his mother. On May 12 being celebrated as Mother's Day, Modi saw the two at a large gathering at Aram Bagh and accepted the paintings. He asked the Special Protection Group (SPG) commandos to collect the portraits. Modi's mother Heeraben Modi died in December 2022.

He sharpened his antipathy against the TMC over alleged appeasement and vote bank politics, citing the recent developments in Sandishakhli.

The whole nation is watching what is happening in Sandishakhli. First the state police rescued the criminals. Now TMC has started a new game. TMC goons are terrorizing and threatening women in Sandishakhli because the name of the culprit is Shahjahan Sheikh. Guns and explosives are being recovered from his house but in an attempt to appease the vote bank, the TMC is trying to give him a clean chit,” Modi said at the first meeting of the day in Barrackpore in North 24 Parganas. Addressing the rally, he said.

Sandishakhli, located in the same district, hit the headlines in February when the women of the village demanded the arrest of a strong TMC leader, Shahjahan, and his associates on charges of sexual assault and land grabbing. There were violent demonstrations. Shahjahan was arrested on February 29 on the orders of the Calcutta High Court. He was later handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

However, on 4 May, an alleged sting video was released by the TMC in which Gangadhar Koil, a local BJP leader from Sandishakhli, was allegedly seen saying that there was no rape and that the women was paid to file a false sexual assault complaint.

On the other hand, the BJP on Friday shared a video on its X-handle in which a woman who appeared in the sting video alleged that she was threatened to give a statement and the sting video was dictated.

“BJP is a formidable party, and its Bashirhat candidate Rekha Patra is causing massive trouble in Sandishakhli. TMC is being attacked. Violence is going on under their leadership. This is Modi's guarantee. “If Modi can threaten women in his speech, such things are happening at his behest,” said state minister Shashi Panja.

Modi also attacked the Mamata Banerjee administration over the warning issued by the Kolkata Police to netizens who shared an AI-generated meme on the West Bengal chief minister.

There is no freedom of expression in West Bengal. Here the voices of opposition and citizens are suppressed. The situation is such that if anyone shares a cartoon or posts a joke on social media, he is threatened and harassed,” he said while addressing a rally at Aram Bagh in Hooghly.

Two AI-generated memes, one featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the other West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, have sparked a battle between the TMC and its arch-rival BJP during the recent Lok Sabha elections. The flash point has become.

While Modi responded to the meme on X saying he enjoyed it, the Kolkata Police on May 6 warned the user and directed him to delete the post and desist from such acts, which I they will be liable for severe punitive action.

If you combine the dynastic politics, corruption and complacency of the Congress with the atrocities and anarchy of the Left government, you get a TMC. TMC has made scams its full-time business. Be it the Congress, the Left or any other party in the Indian coalition, corruption is their common denominator. Most of them resort to scams in a hidden way. But TMC runs an open industry,” he said.

Central agencies have arrested several TMC legislators and leaders in connection with various alleged scams like recruitment scam, coal smuggling scam and ration distribution scam. Federal agencies have also questioned TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee.

“I have seen many prime ministers like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Manmohan Singh, IK Gujral and HD Deve Gowda and Rajiv Gandhi. But I have never seen a Prime Minister like Modi who spreads so much slander. He will get 120 marks out of 100 for lying. He always abuses me and TMC. He lied twice and became Prime Minister. BJP leaders are the biggest leaders of thieves. This is a lie's guarantee,” Mamata Banerjee said while addressing a rally in Howrah's Alberia.
