Vaccines and medicines are being shipped abroad even as there is a scarcity of these items in the country, ‘ she told the rally. She claimed that this election is a fight to save West Bengal and ‘protect the honor of the Bengali mother.
Lashing out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that the second COVID-19 wave in the country and its management is a ‘ Modi – made disaster ‘. Addressing an election rally at Balurghat Dakshin Dinajpur district, the TMC chief asserted that West Bengal will be run only by a ‘Bengal engine government’ and not by ‘Modi’s double – engine’.
The second COVID wave is more intense. I would say this is a Modi- made disaster. There are no injections or oxygen. Vaccines and medicines are being shipped abroad even as there is a scarcity of these items in the country, ‘ she told the rally. She claimed that this election is a fight to save West Bengal and ‘ protect the honor of the Bengali mother.’
‘Our state will be run by a Bengal engine government and not by Modi’s double-engine government. We will not allow Gujurat to capture our state or run it from Delhi. Bengal will rule Bengal, ‘she said. The term ‘ double- engine government’ often used by BJP leaders denotes the government of the same party at the Centre and the state.
We are finding it difficult to set up safe homes. Although we have increased the number of beds, I would suggest that patients who don’t have sever symptoms, please remain in home isolation, ‘ Banerjee said.
Banerjee said that in the last 10 years, the TMC government has built roads, hospitals, bridges , stadia and an industrial centre in Dakshin Dinajpur district. Election to the 294- member state assembly are being held in eight phases from March 27 to April 29. Results will be announced on May 2.
