NEW DELHI: Scores of BJP workers today staged a protest at the Trinamool Congress (TMC) office here over the "recent killings of two BJP workers" in West Bengal.

In a statement issued by the party, senior BJP leader Roopa Ganguly said that whatever is happening under the rule of TMC chief Mamata Banerjee in Bengal is a "black chapter in the history of the state".

A situation has been created in West Bengal wherein a village is deprived of government schemes if its residents supported any party other than the TMC, Ganguly said.

According to the statement, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said, "There is provision of secularism in the Constitution of India but Mamata Banerjee encourages religious appeasement for her political gain."

On Saturday, Mamata Banerjee, along with Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu and Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, met the family members of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence.

All four chief ministers of non-BJP-ruled states expressed support to Kejriwal, who along with his cabinet colleagues have stayed put at the office of Lt Governor Anil Baijal over their demands, including a direction to IAS officers to end their "strike".
