At an election rally in West Bengal’s South Dinajpur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe at West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee. PM Modi said, 'Mamata Didi wants to implement her 'Tolabaji (extortion) Tax' model of development across the country. It is shameful that people from neighbouring country are campaigning for the TMC. This was done by the party to appease the minority community. Such a thing has never happened in India, where people from neighbouring country have been campaigning for a political party. During partition, some people had stayed back in other countries. But, due to their religion and faith, they have been facing persecution in those countries ... Where will they go? It is our commitment to pass the Citizenship Bill in Parliament. Be it the TMC, the Congress or the Left, they have only indulged in politics of dividing people, but we believe in taking everybody along with us. After May 23, we would take steps to identify and stop cross border infiltration.'
