Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday accused the Trinamool Congress of killing the aspirations of the middle-class people in the state. He further said the ruling party in West Bengal was known for "triple T -- Trinamool, Tolabaazi, Tax".
In local parlance, 'tolabaazi' is roughly understood as an act of organised extortion.
"The TMC is killing the people's aspirations but the Centre will fulfil their (people's) dreams," the prime minister said, while addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally in Durgapur.
The interim Budget presented in Parliament on Friday was a reflection of the BJP government's policy of 'Saabka Saath Saabka Vikas', he said.
PM Modi also spoke about the income tax rebate, TDS for bank term deposits, earnings from second property among other budgetary provisions which, he said, will benefit the middle class.
The prime minister claimed the Centre approved infrastructure projects worth Rs 90,000 crore in the past four-and-a-half years for the state but the TMC government did not take interest in implementing them as it wanted a share for the "syndicate".
"The TMC doesn't take interest in initiating development projects where there is no share for the syndicate... where there is no 'malai' (cream)," he alleged.
"Right from admission in schools and colleges, jobs in educational institutes and elsewhere one has to pay 'triple T' to get their work done. But this cannot continue always," PM Modi said.
"We are with the people of the state totally to free them of Jagai Madhai, syndicate raj of the TMC," he added.
Jagai and Madhai, were two brothers who were initially against Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the 16th century seer, but later became among his ardent followers.
PM Modi also praised the bravery of BJP workers amid violent confrontation with the TMC cadre and said their sacrifice would not go waste as days of the TMC government were numbered.
