Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday had interacted with women of Sandeshkhali after addressing a public rally at Barasat in North 24 Parganas.

According to the affected women, Modi has assured all securities to them.

Talking to the Free Press Journal, an affected woman on anonymity said that the assistant of the Prime Minister had noted every complaint made by the affected women.

“When we entered the room, he stood up and told us that we are Ma Durga of the state and also bowed down in front of us. We have told him everything that has happened to us and named those who have tortured us. He has assured us of all security and mentioned that central forces will be sent. His assistant has taken note of everything. We are happy that the Prime Minister had heard of our problems and our Chief Minister didn’t bother about us,” said an affected woman.

Notably, earlier this day, the buses in which the women of Sandeshkhali were coming to Kolkata to reach the rally spot were stopped near airport gate number 1 and at the Biswa Bangla Gate in New Town stating ‘security protocol’.

Addressing a programme of ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Abhinandan’ in Barasat, Modi reminded people of the Sandeshkhali incident of sexual harassment against women and land grab issue by TMC leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his associates.

“The state government is trying to protect the main accused of Sandeshkhali with all their might. They (TMC) had setbacks from both the Supreme Court and High court. Whatever happened in Sandeskhali is shameful. The storm of Sandeshkhali will be seen across the state,” said Modi.

The Prime Minister also mentioned in Bengali that ‘ei baar NDA sarkar 400 par’ (this time the NDA government will cross 400 seats).

Taking potshots at the INDIA bloc, Modi said that the opposition alliance has gone ‘crazy’ understanding that the NDA government will once again return to power.

“Leaders in INDI alliance has gone crazy. They are spending sleepless nights as they have understood that NDA is returning again. Now they started abusing Modi saying that Modi doesn’t have a family. Had they come to this rally they would have seen that my mothers and my sisters who are attending this programme are ‘Modi ka parivar’. When I had nothing and went away from my house not a single day I had starved. I am repaying those debts by standing by the side of the poor and women,” further added Modi.

Modi also stated that TMC has no ‘respect’ for women.

“The land of Bengal has seen women like Ma Sarada, Rani Rashmoni, Preetilata Wadekar, Matanginin Hazra and now it is unfortunate to see incidents like Sandeshkhali and atrocities on women. Through appeasement and tolabaazi TMC cannot empower women. The central government had announced capital punishment over rape charges,” Modi mentioned.

Meanwhile, the women wing of TMC including party chief Mamata Banerjee is scheduled to hold a 'padyatra' on Thursday to celebrate Womens Day.
