Mathurapur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday signed off in style, in what he called his last appearance in the 2024 Lok Sabha poll rally from West Begal, quoting from a famous song 'O Amar Desher Mati,' written by Rabindranath Tagore in South 24 Parganas' Mathurapur. 

Ending the three-month long campaign, where Prime Minister Narnedra Modi traversed across the length and breath of the country, he finished with these popular lines, when translated in English, means, "O my native soil, I bow my head to you in deep obeisance. In you rests the universe, on you is spread the love of the universal mother. You have become blended in my body, You have united with my heart and soul."

Written during the partition of Bengal in 1905, Tagore's patriotic song brought people, cutting across all communities, together at the face of Lord Curzon's divisive policies.

In his last Lok Sabha rally from Bengal, PM Modi trained his guns at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying that she would stoop to such low to oppose CAA for appeasing her votebank of illegal immigrants. "Your vote will stop these dangerous design of TMC's. Your land and property are being snatched by illegal immigrants. Even the demography in the districts bordering Bangladesh has been changed.

PM Modi further attacked Mamata for snatching reservation from OBCs and passing them on to the Muslims. Highlighting Calcutta High Court's recent judgement on scrapping OBC quota for several minority groups, PM Modi said that her government has no other choice but to accept the court's verdict. Saying that Mamata derailed development, PM Modi said, "TMC has kept all regions in Bengal impoverished." "After June 4, these parivaarvadi parties will collapse and there will be a huge tectonic shift in politics. Even their workers have realised where these parties are headed," said PM Modi.
