Lok Sabha Polls 2019: Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu blames BJP for Violence in West Bengal


Amaravati, May 15: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday strongly condemned the violence “perpetrated” by the BJP in Kolkata on Tuesday.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief alleged that after desperately trying to destabilise the West Bengal government through the Central Bureau of Investigation, the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department, the BJP was now resorting to direct violence which shows its true colours.

“Vandalising the statue of a great reformer like Sri Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar is an indication of the pseudo-nationalism practised by the BJP. This incident underlines the need for all the opposition parties to stand united against the destructive tactics of Amit Shah-led BJP,” Naidu tweeted.

The TDP leader, in his tweets in Telugu, alleged that Amit Shah during his rally in Kolkata used vandals to create violence. He said in the past people of the country saw how Narendra Modi used Amit Shah to create hatred among people in Gujarat.

He said in West Bengal where BJP has no strength, the party is trying to create disturbances targeting a senior woman leader like Mamata Banerjee and maligning her government.

Reportedly, massive unrest and violent conflicts broke out between TMC and BJP workers at College Street on Tuesday evening during the roadshow of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah in Kolkata.

Just like Amit Shah’s road initial 6 phases of elections, also saw violence in the state with reports of clashes between TMC and BJP from various places.

Polling in West Bengal’s 42 Lok Sabha Seat is being spread on all seven phases. 9 Lok Sabha seats of the state will go to polls in the last phase of the election slated for May 19. Counting of the votes is slated for May 23.

Both TMC and BJP ever since the start of national polls is in loggerheads. BJP in a run-up to the polls is leaving no stone unturned to make a big dent in Mamata’s Bastion and eyeing a lion share from 42 Lok Sabha Seats.
