New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said he is working to ensure that nearly Rs 3,000 crore “looted” from the poor of West Bengal and confiscated by the Enforcement Directorate is returned.

Prime Minister Modi made this claim in a telephonic conversation with Amrita Roy, former royal and BJP candidate against TMC's Mahua Moitra in Krishnanagar Lok Sabha constituency, and asserted that power and not country is the priority of the opposition parties.

“Prime Minister Modi told 'Rajmata' Amrita Roy that he is exploring legal options to ensure that the money looted from the poor returns to them through any assets and money that the ED has allocated to the corrupt,” said a leader of the BJP.

According to the details of the conversation shared by the party, the chief minister estimated the amount of money people of the state paid as bribe to get jobs at Rs 3,000 crore.

He told him to inform the people of his position and stated that soon after returning to power he will find a way to do so, including legal provisions if necessary.

Prime Minister Modi also criticized the Congress for its support of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal following his arrest by the ED in a corruption case, saying those who lodged complaints against the AAP have now changed course to help it. He, however, did not name anyone.

“This shows that their priority is not country but power,” he said, stating that the BJP-led alliance is fighting for a corruption-free country for the bright future of the youth, while all the corrupt have united in the other side to save each other.

As Roy traces his lineage to local king Krishnachandra Roy of the 18th century, Prime Minister Modi hit back at those who have attacked the former royal for her alleged support for the British after the BJP named her its candidate.

She told Modi that her family is being called traitors and pointed out that Krishnachandra Roy worked for the people and joined hands with other kings to save “Sanatan Dharma”.

He asked him not to accept any pressure, saying that they (TMC) practice vote bank politics and will make all kinds of wild allegations. They do it to hide their sins, he said.

On one hand they look for proof of the existence of Lord Ram, while on the other they cite incidents dating back to two or three centuries to defame others, he said.

“This is his double standard,” Modi said, praising the king's legacy of social reforms and development and asking him to continue his legacy.

Expressing confidence in his victory, he asked Roy to be ready with the agenda for the first 100 days for his constituency.

He also expressed confidence that West Bengal will vote for 'Parivartan' (change) in the state.

The alleged corruption of leaders of the ruling Trinamool Congress in the state is one of the main pillars of the BJP in the state as it has highlighted the arrest of some of them, including former minister Partha Chatterjee, and the recovery of large amounts of money and other assets. of them to attack their rivals.

“You have the challenge of saving Bengal's heritage,” he told him.

He said people had expressed confidence in the work of the Modi government and told him that Moitra, the incumbent TMC MP from the constituency, will go to jail, prompting laughter from the prime minister.

Moitra is facing investigation in a corruption case for allegedly allowing a businessman to use her parliamentary access in exchange for bribes and other favours.

He termed the businessman as his friend and refuted the corruption allegations, blaming the BJP for it.

Roy told Modi that during his campaign people talked about corruption and broken promises of the state government.

The BJP had won 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state in 2019 in what was seen as a surge in its fortunes and is looking to add to its tally this time.
