Midnapore (WB): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched a no-holds-barred attack against the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal, charging it with “throttling democracy” and running a “syndicate raj” without whose approval nothing moves. Addressing a ‘Kisan Kalyan’ rally here, the Prime Minister also reached out to farmers and said his government was working to double their incomes by 2022.

Addressing a 'Kisan Kalyan' rally here, the prime minister also reached out to farmers and said his government was working to double their incomes by 2022. The people of West Bengal will get freedom from the “misrule” of the Trinamool Congress within a few months, Modi said at the farmers' welfare rally in an apparent reference to the coming general elections.
