Bharatiya Janata Party Leader Mukul Roy launched a sharp attack on Mamata Banerjee and TMC-led West Bengal Government saying there is no democracy left in the state. Terming the state police role as unfortunate, Mukul Roy raised questions over the role of State Police in not allowing to take the body of deceased BJP workers to party headquarters.
Speaking to ANI Mukul Roy said, ‘This is not new, We all have seen so much violence during Lok Sabha Polls. There is no democracy in West Bengal, We have been saying this for a long time.
Further slamming Mamata Banerjee, BJP Leader said that she is trying to create an atmosphere of fear in the state by visiting different places.
Further pressing over the issue of deceased BJP workers, Mukul Roy said our party workers want to pay tribute to him and that is why we want his body to come to the party office. But West Bengal did not allow this, it’s quite unfortunate.
The clash between two political groupings occurred after the removal of BJP’s flag in
Sandeshkhali Assembly constituency of North 24 Parganas on Saturday. BJP leader Mukul Roy has alleged that four BJP workers were shot dead by the members of TMC.
While earlier in the day, West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi also expressed concern and displeasure over the continuous incidents of violence and clashes between TMC and BJP workers in the state.
Press Secretary to Governor Manab Bandyopadhyay said, “Governor Tripathi is sad at the unfortunate loss of lives and properties of citizens. He extends his heartfelt sympathy for families of the deceased. He appeals to all to see to it that no violent incidents take place, and peace and harmony prevail in the state”.
It should be noted that TMC Boss Mamata Banerjee had a bitter spat with PM Modi during the campaigning of the national polls. While the polls saw massive incidents of violence and clashes between TMC and BJP.
It comes days after the 2019 Lok Sabha election, in which the Bharatiya Janata Party made a big dent in Mamata’s Stronghold West Bengal. The saffron party managed to give a big jolt to Mamata Banerjee‘s TMC by winning 18 seats out of total 42 Lok Sabha Seats of the state.
Bharatiya Janata Party has also improved its vote share from 17% in 2014 to over 40% in recently held national polls.
