Modi takes on Third Front parties – The Hindu

“Time has come to bid farewell to this idea of Third Front from Indian politics forever,” the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate told a party rally in Kolkata.

Making his debut in West Bengal in the campaign for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a blistering attack on the Left parties and the Third Front, saying they will make India a “third-rate” country.

Trying to strike a chord with the Bengalis, he accused the Congress of denying Pranab Mukherjee the Prime Minister’s chair in 2004 even though he “deserved” it.

Mr. Modi was severe in his criticism of the Left parties and their partners, saying they have destroyed the eastern region of the country by their rule while western India has shown progress because they had never ruled that region.

“These people (Left and its associates) who do politics in the name of secularism practice the politics of vote-bank by misleading Muslims. They destroyed the eastern region. You must banish them from the Indian politics forever,” he said in a speech interspersed with some sentences in Bengali.
