KOLKATA: The BJP unit in West Bengal will soon send a report to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh about a TMC leader inciting his partymen to “chop BJP workers to pieces.”
The state BJP general secretary on Wednesday told Express: “The hate speeches and the way our workers are being attacked by armed TMC goons are crimes to which the state administration is a mute spectator.
“We are also waiting for the new Governor to assume office and will submit a detailed memorandum to him about unchecked post-poll violence by the TMC goons,” he said.
TMC’s Bankura district president Arup Chakraborty, during his visit to Munaidihi village on Tuesday, told a group of partymen, “If anyone enters your house chop them to pieces. Sacrifice them as it is done in religious rituals. I will face the consequences and protect you.” He reportedly said that in the presence of police, referring to BJP workers.
He also told a TV channel, “The BJP does not even have a single MLA in our state, but some new entrants in that party from the CPM are terrorizing our workers.”
