Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to attend two mega rallies in poll-bound Assam and West Bengal today. He will take up several issues in his address and elaborate on BJP’s development agenda and its plans for the two states.
According to his schedule, PM Modi will first attend a rally in West Bengal’s Kharagpur and then in Assam’s Chabua. He is hopeful that the people in both the states would elect the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the forthcoming elections.
While announcing his schedule for Saturday, PM Modi took to his official Twitter handle saying, “Will be in Assam and West Bengal tomorrow and the day after. Tomorrow, March 20, I would be speaking at rallies in Kharagpur (WB) and Chabua (Assam). Will elaborate on BJP’s development agenda during my speeches. It is clear both states want to elect NDA in the upcoming polls.”
Earlier this week, Modi had addressed a rally in West Bengal’s Purulia attacking the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. He accused the CM of running a govt of “crime, violence and corruption” in the state.
The Prime Minister further assured the people of the poll-bound state that the rule of law will be re-established in the state as soon as the BJP government is elected to power.
PM Modi also addressed a rally in Assam’s Karimganj earlier, where he said that Congress Party neglected the north-east for decades but the NDA Government has been focussing on connectivity and social empowerment.
Elections to the 126-member Assam Assembly are slated to be held in three phases starting from March 27.
The West Bengal Assembly elections for 294 seats will be held in eight phases starting from March 27 and ending on April 29. The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
