PM Modi Alleges TMC Allowing Illegal Migrants to Alter West Bengal's Demography

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has accused the Trinamool Congress (TMC) party of permitting illegal Bangladeshi and Rohingya migrants to change the demography of West Bengal and disturb law and order in the state. In his recent remarks, Modi claimed that the TMC is against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and has been spreading false rumors about the legislation.

According to Modi, the TMC government has allowed Bangladeshi and Rohingya infiltrators to operate freely under its protection, putting the future of West Bengal at risk in order to boost the party's vote bank. He further alleged that previous governments in the state have halted development and allowed hooligans to operate with impunity.

The Prime Minister specifically mentioned the Sandeshkhali incident, where he said TMC leaders openly tortured women. He criticized the party for not allowing voters to cast their ballots independently and for threatening them. Modi also accused the TMC of misappropriating funds from the MGNREGA scheme, claiming the party has no interest in the development of West Bengal and wants to keep the state poor to maintain its business interests.

Why this matters: The allegations made by PM Modi highlight the ongoing political tensions in West Bengal and the contentious issue of illegal immigration. The upcoming elections in the state are likely to be heavily influenced by these factors, with the BJP and TMC engaging in a fierce battle for votes.

Modi's comments come as the Raiganj Lok Sabha constituency in West Bengal prepares for a closely contested election between the BJP's Kartick Paul and the TMC's Krishna Kalyani. In the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the BJP's Debasree Chaudhuri won the Raiganj seat by a margin of 60,574 votes, defeating the TMC's Agarwal Kanaialal.

The Prime Minister's accusations against the TMC highlight the BJP's campaign strategy of targeting the ruling party on issues of corruption, crime, and illegal immigration. As the election draws closer, the rhetoric from both sides is expected to intensify, with the fate of West Bengal hanging in the balance.
