Smriti Irani's slogan for West Bengal Polls: Union Minster Smriti Irani on Sunday hit out at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, addressing an election campaign rally at Salboni to support Medinipur BJP candidate Samit Das. Irani claimed that the people of the state wanted "TMC (Trinamool Congress) bhagao, BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) lao, Bangla bachao".

She further spoke about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's welfare schemes for the poor in the state. "For many years, Didi and TMC have played with the lives and dignity of Bengal's women and the poor. But in this election, the whole country knows that 'pishi' & 'bhaipo' are going," Irani spoke in West Midnapore, West Bengal.

"PM Modi sent Rs 4 lakh crore from Delhi for the poor people and the development of the state, but Didi, when you were supporting the previous Congress governments at the Centre, how much money did you spent?... Didi has supported those who have looted India's treasury and have raised their voices against the nation," she said.

She also said that Banerjee is unable to control her state. "She is saying 'Khela hobe' (Game on), but the people are saying 'Khela shesh' (Game over)... The way elections are taking place, the whole country has become aware that the people of Bengal have decided that TMC will be departing this time. ''Pishi' (Aunt) and 'Bhaipo' (Nephew) are going, and the BJP government is coming to Bengal," she further mentioned, while also accusing her and TMC of playing with the dignity and life of Bengal's women and the poor.

Meanwhile, IPS officer Vivek Sahay has been suspended by the Election Commission over irresponsibility for handling the security of Banerjee during the Nandigram rally where she was attacked and allegedly “pushed” by people. A preliminary report by doctors at the hospital where she was undergoing treatment claimed that she has sustained injuries in her left ankle, foot, right shoulder, forearm and neck. She had gone to Nandigram to file her nomination for the coming assembly elections.

West Bengal Assembly Polls start from March 27 with the final round of voting taking place on April 29. The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
