MHA seeks report from West Bengal govt over attack on Nadda’s convoy

New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Thursday sought a detailed report from the West Bengal government over the attack on BJP National President JP Nadda’s convoy.

Shah said the central government is taking this attack “very seriously”

The Ministry, in a written message to the state Chief Secretary, has asked to submit the report about the issue and lapses in law and order in the state that may lead to the risk for senior BJP leaders camping in the state ahead of the assembly elections that is just six months away, said sources privy to the development.

Condemning the attack, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also said that the Central government is taking congnisance of “sponsored violence” very seriously.

In a scathing attack on the West Bengal government run by state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Minister said Bengal has gone into an era of “tyranny, anarchy and darkness under the Trinamool rule”.

Expressing his views in a series of tweets, Shah said the central government is taking this attack “very seriously” and that the Bengal government will have to answer to the peace-loving people of the state for this “sponsored violence”.

“The attack on Nadda Ji is very condemnable.”

The Home Minister further said that the manner in which political violence has been institutionalised in West Bengal under TMC rule is sad and worrying for all those who believe in democratic values.

Nadda’s convoy was allegedly attacked with stones and bricks while he was on his way to Diamond Harbour on Thursday. Several cars in the convoy, including that of Bharatiya Janata Party National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh, were damaged in the attack.

About ten BJP leaders, including Vijayvargiya and Mukul Roy, received minor injuries.

Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar expressed concerned over the “alarming reports of anarchy and lawlessness” and lamented that such incidents took place despite his intimations to the Chief Secretary and Director General of Police.

On Wednesday, the state BJP president, in a letter to Home Minister Amit Shah, had informed about protests being planned by the “goons of TMC” at different places “on the way towards Diamond Harbour from New Town”.

Nadda is in West Bengal to participate in an ongoing mass outreach campaign launched ahead of the assembly elections that are just six months away.
