Kolkata: Violence and arson continues in different parts of West Bengal after the results of the assembly elections. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleges that this violence in West Bengal is being instigated under the patronage of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), which won the assembly elections.
BJP national president JP Nadda visited West Bengal on Tuesday to meet BJP workers and their families affected by the violence. There he went to the house of Haran Adhikari (BJP worker) in South 24 Parganas.
On this occasion, JP Nadda said in a media interaction that TMC workers attacked Haran Adhikari‘s house. They committed vandalism, threatened women and children, attacked them and broke his wife’s teeth. They then dragged the officer out of his house and beat him up. His wife passed away.
Also, JP Nadda targeted Mamata Banerjee and said, “Mamata, what did your party do after the victory? While you speak about your faith in democracy. TMC activists and leaders are saying that all these incidents on social media are fake. You saw how Haran Adhikari’s wife and son were crying. I request the media to tell the truth.”
Significantly, after defeating Mamata Banerjee by 1736 votes from Nandigram seat, Shuvendu Adhikari also accused TMC workers of attacking his car on Tuesday.
The BJP alleges that nine people have been killed in the violence that erupted in the last 24 hours in West Bengal. BJP officials filed their complaint in this context in front of West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar.
Hearing this, the Governor on Monday directed the DGP West Bengal Police and the Kolkata Police Commissioner to immediately control the ever-increasing incidents of arson, looting and violence in the state.
