PM Narendra Modi on Sunday during his speech at Cooch Behar in West Bengal, slammed the state CM Mamata Banerjee for her silence at those who want two PMs for India.

"For vote bank politics, Didi now stands with the people who want to break India. She is supporting people who want two PMs in India. Does India need two PMs?," he said.

He also attacked her saying that she does not stand by her own party Trinamool's slogan.

"The promise of 'Ma Maati Maanush' is on one hand and the truth of  TMC on the other hand. For vote bank politics, Didi forgot 'Ma' and sided with those who raise slogans of 'Bharat ke tukde tukde '. This is an insult to 'Ma'," he said.

Accusing Mamata Banerjee of corruption he also said that her anger at her officers and the Election Commission display her fear.

"The more you chant 'Modi Modi', the more someone loses their sleep. You know who they are? 'Speed breaker'. The speed breaker of West Bengal - Didi. She is losing her sleep and is taking out her anger on her officers, on Election Commission. The way she's abusing me, the way she's attacking the Election Commission, it's all a sign of her (Mamata Banerjee's) desperation. These are all signs of fear," he said.

He also took on the Trinamool chief for not providing the Ayushman Yojana and not giving jobs to the people.

"Didi has put a break on free treatment for the poor under Ayushman Yojana and on financial assistance to farmers. Has Didi informed you why recommendations of 7th pay commission were not implemented? Has Didi told you why despite clearing exams no appointments are being done in Bengal?"

He also emphasized his government's role in national security.

"India never entered terrorists' homes and attack them. It was considered to have been impossible. But we have shown it is possible. Your vote has made it possible," he said.

During his speech, PM Modi had to ask the swelling crowd to take their seats. He also asked Banerjee to take notice of the huge number of crowds indicating his popularity in her state.
