SEHRABAZAR/BHATAR: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was making occasional whistlestop visits to the state in aircraft and making irrelevant statements.

Asserting that Saradha or Narada will not help Modi to defeat the TMC government, Banerjee said, "I challenge, you won't be able to harm my government, my party, by any tactic, as we think about the poor people and they are with us and not you."

"What he is doing? He is making short trips to the state in plane. Making irrelevant comments and then leaving. There are no takers of his speeches here in Bengal," the TMC supremo said about Modi's back-to-back poll rallies in Sehrabazar and Bhatar in Burdwan district.

Attacking the CPI(M), Banerjee said the left parties had only harmed the cause of farmers.

Banerjee, who addressed a meeting of TMC-supported AIUDF candidate Siddiqullah Chowdhury in Mangalkot earlier, called upon the electorate to vote in her name and make her candidate the winner.

Claiming that two lakh unemployed youth got job under her regime in past five years, she said: "After we come to power for the second term on May 19, we will complete the unfinished task."

Elections will be held in remaining parts of Burdwan district on April 21. In some parts of the district polling took place on April 11.
