PM dedicates 294-km-long electrified railway lines in West Bengal, to the nation

PTI
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hailed the interim budget presented in Parliament yesterday calling it all inclusive. Addressing a public rally at Nehru Stadium in Durgapur, West Bengal he said, the budget had addressed the concerns of all sections of the people, farmers, workers, women and the middle class.

Launching a blistering attack on Trinamool Congress government of West Bengal, he alleged that the state government is obstructing the centre's efforts for development. 

Mr Modi pointed out that the West Bengal government pulled out of Ayushman Bharat scheme which benefits crores of poor people of the country.

Prime Minister alleged that the state government is destroying democracy by indulging in killing of BJP workers. Mr Modi further said, that Trinamool Congress workers were extorting money from the common man and Trinamool Tolabaji Tax rule is prevalent in the state.
 
Referring to last month's rally of opposition parties in Kolkata, Mr Modi said those who would not see face-to-face four years ago, were now hugging each other. He said, those who made money from chit funds to defence deals don't like the chowkidar. 

He said because of this, many diverse people had come together there and took the oath of ousting Modi. In an apparent reference to the Gandhi family, Mr Modi said your chowkidar has started a huge drive to cleanse the country of corruption and black money. He said, the country's most powerful and famed family is now doing the rounds of courts on charges of tax evasion and cheating.

Earlier, addressing a rally in Thakurnagar the Prime Minister after launching the 294-km-long Andal - Sainthia-Pakur- Malda and Khana-Sainthia electrified railway line, said that the electrification of the two railway lines will immensely benefit the rural people of the state.

These electrified railway lines will facilitate faster movement of goods and passengers of the region.
