The Union home ministry on Friday summoned West Bengal’s DGP and chief secretary on December 14 regarding the law and order situation in the state. This comes a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) chief JP Nadda’s convoy used to be attacked.
On Thursday, Nadda in conjunction with BJP leaders Dilip Ghosh and Kailash Vijayvargiya used to be on his way to the Diamond Harbour to attend the party’s organisational assembly when the convoy in which he used to be seated used to be attacked. The video of the assault that went viral on social media showed windshields of the convoy shattered as stones were thrown at it.
Union home minister Amit Shah condemned the attack and said that the Trinamool Congress (TMC)-ruled government will be answerable to the peace-loving people of West Bengal.
“The attack on BJP president JP Nadda is condemnable. No matter how much we condemn, it’ll not be enough. The Centre is taking this very seriously. The West Bengal government will be answerable to the peace-loving people of the state for this,” Shah’s tweet kind of translated from Hindi read.
The Centre on Thursday had sent a communication to Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and sought a detailed outline on the law and order situation in the state and the steps taken by the government to verify peace.
Dhankar further said that chief minister Mamata Banerjee has to follow the Charter adding that the law and order situation has been often worsening for long.
Meantime, TMC MP Mahua Moitra hit out at the BJP by saying that Thursday’s attack used to be staged by the BJP and for this reason their security could not foil the attack.
“Had heard of college BYOB parties. BJP having a BYOS (Bring Your Own Security) party each day in Bengal – CRPF, CISF and each central force conceivable accompanies each and every two-bit leader who visits. Disgrace they may be able to’t give protection to you from staged ‘attacks’,” Moitra tweeted.[ad_2]
