The Bharatiya Janata Party State president Ajay Bhatt and Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat have strongly condemned the violence in West Bengal during the rally of BJP national president Amit Shah. The BJP members also staged a silent protest demonstration at Gandhi Park on Wednesday against the violence in West Bengal.
Bhatt said that the violence perpetrated by TMC goondas during Shah’s rally was a sign of the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s frustration and dictatorial attitude. “TMC and Banerjee are on the wane in West Bengal.
The manner in which the BJP has received the support of voters there has stumped Banerjee who has lost her balance. She made her goondas attack Amit Shah’s road show, commit arson and pelt stones on BJP leaders and workers. Had central forces not been there it would have been difficult for Amit Shah to exit safety from the site,” said Bhatt.
CM Trivendra Singh Rawat said, “What happened in West Bengal is highly deplorable. Such behaviour with any party’s chief is very unfortunate. It seems as if Mamata ji has lost faith in democracy. Similarly, questionable treatment was meted out to Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath in the past.
The Trinamool Congress is indulging in such acts due to its frustration and disappointment. What is happening in West Bengal is akin to strangling democratic values.
TMC cadre is routinely indulging in violence on the directions of the CM.”Rawat further said, “In the last phase of the parliamentary elections polling is to be held for nine seats in West Bengal. The BJP is getting good lead on these seats which is why Mamata Didi is so nervous. The BJP national president was not granted permission for a rally in Jadavpur because Mamata knew that the rally would ensure her nephew’s defeat in the polls.
Many BJP workers have been killed in West Bengal, the processions of our candidates are attacked, their vehicles are damaged and their posters torn off. A befitting reply will be given to such politics of violence on May 23.”Meanwhile, BJP leaders and workers staged a silent protest at Gandhi Park against the violence in West Bengal.
