PM Modi delivers 'poriborton' speech in Bengal, TMC's Derek O'Brien 'fact-checks'

Feb 23, 2021 08:44 IST

Bengal Trinamool MP Derek O'Brien ‘fact-checked’ PM Modi’s Hoogly speech on Monday, refuting his statements.

He pointed out that the average per person income in the state had ‘more than doubled - from ₹ 51,543 in 2010 to ₹ 1.09 lakh in 2019’ and ‘nearly 89 lakh small businesses operate in Bengal today compared to 34.6 lakh in 2012, employing 1.35 crore people’.

He also added the state had already put in place schemes for farmers - who he said had seen incomes triple in 10 years. The fact-check also included a list of the state's assistance to puja committees.
