In West Bengal, Prime Minister Modi lashed out at Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee. On his next stop in Assam's Chabua, PM Modi's next target was the Congress party.

Here are highlights of Prime Minister Modi's scathing attack on Congress while addressing a rally in Assam's Chabua.

* "Congress has joined hands with parties that are a danger to Assam's culture & heritage. The development of every region of Assam is a priority for the BJP govt. We are committed to ensuring that the culture and heritage of the state remain protected."

* "Congress has gone very far from the people of Assam. A few days ago, they shared a photo from Sri Lanka and said it was Assam. A few days ago, they shared a photo from Taiwan and said it was Assam. It is injustice and insult to our beautiful Assam."

* "The Congress party supports these toolkit makers and still has the audacity to ask for votes in Assam! Can we forgive a party such as this?"

* "Congress who is contesting elections in Assam doesn't even recognise Assam's tea gardens. This is how they insult the people of Assam."

* "A toolkit has been circulated that will defame the tea of Assam and our yoga. It has prepared a plan and the makes of this toolkit want to inflict losses on our tea plantations."

* "India's oldest party, who ruled over India for 50-55 years, is supporting people who're trying to remove India's image associated with tea. Can we forgive Congress for this? Don't they deserve to get punished?"

* "The Congress, once the largest party in the country, is shrinking today. The reason is absolutely clear. There is no respect for talent in Congress. Greed for power is paramount. For power, they can take anyone with them, they can support anyone."

* "If a chaiwala does not understand your pain, then who will understand. I assure you that the NDA government will intensify efforts to improve the standard of living of colleagues working in Tea Gardens."
