PM Modi is addressing a mega BJP rally at Kolkata's Brigade Parade Ground. Here are the highlights of his speech:
-If the political pundits of this nation want to guess what will happen on May 23, they can estimate what will happen by looking at the wave (of support for BJP) in West Bengal.
-Brigade Ground hasn't seen a crowd larger than this before. I have come before you with my report card.
-Tell me, who was asking evidence of air strike? Who was doubting air strike? Who was letting down the Armed Forces? The sin of asking for evidence, who was committing that sin?
-Who called 'Mission Shakti' a drama?
-Our Armed Forces had the ability to carry out surgical strikes before as well but the government then did not have the political will.
-Congress is promising something that will help terrorists sitting in Pakistan. Why is Congress playing with national security? Why is Congress trying to destabilise the nation?
-For their vote bank, Congress has always been soft on terrorism. In 2019, your vote will play an important role in destroying terrorism.
-The expiry date of Congress' manifesto is decided from the start, the date is May 23.
-Some people had said 'Modi hatao' from here some months ago. They had abused Modi then, and they had gathered everyone from different states, just to say 'Modi hatao'. What crime has Modi committed? Is it a crime to provide homes to the poor, and if it is crime, then I have committed that crime.
-Tripura's Left government had not given their employees the 7th Pay Commission. When a BJP government was formed there, the state government employees were provided with the 7th Pay Commission.
-Now the people of Bengal and BJP will make up a government which will be free of the Left and the TMC.
