The people of Bengal are disappointed with the way the TMC government is functioning.

PM Modi said, "These projects will accelerate the economic growth of West Bengal and create employment opportunities. In the modern era, electricity is a great need to speed up the development. Be it any state's industry, modern facilities. Be it our daily life or our daily life related to modern technology, no state or country can develop in the absence of electricity, hence our effort is to make West Bengal self-reliant for its present and future needs.

West Bengal acts as the eastern gateway for our country. Immense possibilities of progress can enter through this door in the East. That's why our government is working for modern connectivity in West Bengal through Roadways, Railways, Airways, Motorways. This land is the ultimate propagator of devotion to Lord Shri Krishna. It is the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. I bow at the feet of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is my good fortune that the city of Dwarka which was established by Lord Shri Krishna, which had drowned under the sea, just a few days ago I got to go into the depths of the sea and find that ancient Shri Krishna. Had the privilege of bowing to the land."

The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of Raghunathpur Thermal Power Station Phase II (2x660 MW) of Damodar Valley Corporation located in Purulia district.

He inaugurated the Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) system developed at a cost of Rs 650 crore at Mejia Thermal Power Station.
