Tea, timber, tourism: PM Modi woos North Bengal

PM

Modi

touched on the three Ts close to North Bengal’s heart – tea, tourism and timber – while intertwining them with broader issues plaguing Bengal, including allegations of “corruption” and “misrule” by TMC, as he made another targeted appeal to women at his first election rally in Siliguri on Saturday.
In his fourth speech within nine days in the state, the PM reiterated themes from his previous addresses, aiming to sustain BJP’s momentum in North Bengal, where it won seven of eight LS seats in 2019.

Speaking on BJP’s commitment to the region’s progress, Modi outlined plans for enhancing business opportunities in tea, tourism, and timber sectors, alongside infrastructure development initiatives.
TMC, meanwhile, reminded the PM that “Manipur is just over 350km from Kaziranga”. RS MP-elect Sagarika Ghose posted on X: “…In Manipur after 10 months of violence, almost 200 have died and there have been several incidents of army officers being abducted. Given how you criss-cross India, why did you not stop over in Manipur? Or is Manipur not on the map of “New India.”
