Amit Shah To Visit West Bengal On December 19-20 As TMC And BJP War Intensifies after JP Nadda Attack
The centre has asked for a report from the Mamata Banerjee government on the anarchy and lawlessness in West Bengal after BJP senior leaders including JP Nadda, Kailash Vijayvargia and Dilip Ghosh were attacked by TMC workers while traveling in a motorcade yesterday
The ongoing political war between the West Bengal government and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) turned uglier after the saffron party’s president, JP Nadda’s convoy of vehicles was allegedly attacked by Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers on Thursday. The motorcade, headed towards Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee’s Diamond Harbour constituency was waylaid by the regional party’s loyalists with stones and sticks. Though Nadda got away uninjured due to his bulletproof car, other senior leaders were hurt, including national secretary Kailash Vijayvargia who fractured an arm.
Now Union Home Minister Amit Shah is expected to travel to Bengal on 19-20 December to attend to party programs. Condemning the incident, Shah said that his team is taking the matter very seriously and such sponsored violence by the TMC cannot be allowed in the future for the peace-loving people of the state.
Meanwhile, the central government sought a report from the Mamata administration on the hooliganism and security lapses under her leadership. Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar, who has also been asked by the federal rule to submit a separate report on this case stated that the state’s disorder is out of control.
Responding to the incident, Uttar Pradesh BJP President, Swatantra Dev Singh declared that the anarchy in the hands of the WB rule will not stop the Narendra Modi government from making an impact in the state.
Mamata Banerjee called the accusations false, justifying that the BJP leaders cannot possibly be attacked amidst so much security.
