"Just as Hindus were thrown out of J&K, they will be forced out of West Bengal...terrorists from Bangladesh have infiltrated into West Bengal and are troubling Hindus," Singh said. "It is our good fortune that we have a leader like Narendra Modi...we will be able to remove foreign powers from West Bengal," he claimed, adding "Surpanakha" will be defeated by Modi and Amit Shah.

The BJP MLA also attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi, saying he will have to face Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the coming Lok Sabha polls.
