Bengal Elections: Modi Promises ‘Asol Paribartan’, Says ‘Khela Khatam, Vikas Shuru’

Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised to deliver ‘asol paribartan’ (real change) in West Bengal if the BJP is voted to power in the upcoming state assembly elections.

Addressing a mega rally at Brigade Parade ground on Sunday afternoon, Modi said the people of West Bengal have been cheated and duped by the Trinamool Congress (TMC).

“Ten years ago, Trinamool had ended the 34-year Left Front rule… People of Bengal had put faith in Didi to bring paribartan. But Didi and her cadre have destroyed the faith of the people with their tolabaji, syndicate raaj, bhrashtachar and insulted Bengal. ‘Asol paribartan’ means peace and development, better education, more jobs and fulfilling everyone’s dreams. We will rebuild Bengal. I have come to give you hope and assurance,” Modi thundered in front of lakhs of people who assembled braving the heat.

“Lakhs of people have turned up today to give their blessings to us. All intellectuals and artistes are with us. All of them are hoping that Bengal reaches a new high of development. Hearing the war cry of the people, it seems May 2 (date of election results) is already here today. With the blessings of Bharat Mata, we will build a Sonar Bangla,” the Prime Minister observed.

He added that the TMC’s game was over, and it was time for development. “Khela khatam, vikas shuru,” he quipped, referring to TMC’s unofficial slogan of ‘khela hobe’.

Mocking Mamata’s scooty ride a few days ago to protest against fuel price rise, Modi said everyone was praying that nothing untoward would happen. “If the bike had fallen, she would have blamed its makers… be it from south or north… and made them her enemies.”
