"I want to reveal another truth about Didi. The central government is opening fast track courts for heinous crimes against women. Didi's government has stopped the implementation of even that in West Bengal," PM Modi said.

Referring to the Congress and the Left regime in West Bengal, the Prime Minister said, "Didi's entire team has been asked to go out of the field by the people of Bengal. She knows once Congress and Left went out of Bengal, they never came back. Didi once you go, will never come back again. TMC is going to lose."

The Chief Minister had said that she will hold a protest rally in Cooch Behar on Sunday against the firing incident and visit the homes of the deceased.

"Handicraft, business, marketing, investment aren't among TMC's priorities. Didi's TMC is an expert in 'tolabaazi' (extortion). Didi's TMC is an expert in cut-money. Didi's TMC is an expert in killing BJP workers. Didi's TMC is an expert in rigging," PM Modi said.
