BJP bringing outside people to create unrest in WB: TMCtext_fields
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress Sunday accused the BJP of bringing people "from across the border" and instigating the West Bengal natives to spread violence and destroy communal harmony in the state.
Speaking to reporters at the TMC Bhawan here, party secretary general Partha Chatterjee said there have been constant attempts to destroy the communal harmony of the state and the BJP, with support from its government at the Centre, has been behind it.
"There have been consistent attempts to destroy the communal harmony in West Bengal. And we have been noticing that people from across the borders are coming to this part of the land with support of the BJP, and creating trouble here and trying to instigate people and spread violence with their hate speeches," Chatterjee said.
The TMC leader alleged that BJP leaders in West Bengal are trying to initiate sporadic violence with support from the Centre.
"We are seeing that a few BJP leaders in the state, with the blessings of their government at the Centre, are trying to initiate violence in different places in the state in a planned manner," Chatterjee said.
The TMC will protest against this "conspiracy" and spread the message of communal harmony as well as development works of the state government and will also take to the streets, he said.
A central team of the BJP comprising party MPs Meenakshi Lekhi, Om Mathur and Satyapal Singh, was yesterday stopped from visiting the communal clashes-hit Basirhat area in West Bengal and detained.
Meanwhile, blaming the state government in failing to contain the communal violence in Baduria and its adjoining areas in North 24 Parganas, West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose today said a peace rally will be organised in the city on July 12.
West Bengal had witnessed a communal violence in Baduria and its adjoining areas in North 24 Parganas district since last Monday over an objectionable Facebook post.
