JP Nadda compares post-poll violence in Bengal to ‘Partition atrocities’

Kolkata: BJP national president JP Nadda on Tuesday compared the post-poll violence in West Bengal to that of atrocities committed during the Partition of India.

He said that he would visit residences of BJP workers who were attacked by TMC goons

He accused TMC of attacking BJP’s party workers in the wake of election results in which Mamata Banerjee’s party retained power.

“I had heard of the immense atrocities committed during the Partition, but I have never seen such post-poll violence that is occurring in West Bengal after the declaration of election results,” Nadda said while speaking to media.

“We are committed to democratically fight this ideological battle and the activities of the TMC, which is full of intolerance,” added the BJP chief.

He said that he would visit residences of BJP workers who were attacked by TMC goons.

In order to instil confidence in party workers facing violence at the hands of TMC cadre, Nadda said, “we want to give this message that crores of BJP workers across the country are with them.” .

The BJP chief met the family of party worker Abhijeet Sarkar who was allegedly killed in post-poll violence, in Sitala Tala Lane, Beliaghata, Kolkata.

Union Minister V Muraleedharan, state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh and state general secretary Locket Chatterjee were also present.

“Abhijeet Sarkar’s mother was weeping for him. Only those who can’t hear her screams can call such serious issues a stunt, a drama. BJP won’t tolerate such bloodied politics – done just for power. BJP won’t tolerate political oppression being done on people of Bengal,” he was quoted as saying by a news agency.

“I had said it earlier too, Mamata ji does not represent Bengali culture. Intolerance, thy name is Mamata ji,” he added.

The BJP has claimed at least six of its workers and supporters, including a woman, were killed in violence allegedly unleashed by the Trinamool Congress following its victory in the assembly elections.

TMC has refuted the allegations. It has alleged that the violence in the state was as a result of infighting within the BJP camp.

“BJP IT cell could have given trolls some time off after results. All cases on SM are BJP intra-party fights. Three+ factions in Bengal. They hate each other. MO-SHA came here and spread hate for the last four months. Bengal wants peace and harmony. BJP wants divisiveness,” TMC MP Derek O’Brien had tweeted.
