Mumbai: A day after BJP President JP Nadda’s convoy was attacked with bricks and stones, the Governor of West Bengal on Friday submitted his report on the state’s law and order as sought by Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
Dhankar came down heavily on CM Mamata Banerjee and called yesterday’s incident a ‘slur on democratic fabric’.
He said, “The incidents that happened yesterday are the most unfortunate. They are a blot on our democratic fabric. The Chief Minister has to follow the Constitution. She cannot go her way. Law and order situation in the state has deteriorated.”
It is noteworthy that stones were thrown at Nadda’s convoy yesterday when he was going from Kolkata to the Diamond Harbor area of South 24 Parganas district.
If the reports are to be believed, the Ministry of Home Affairs has summoned the Chief Secretary of State and the Chief of Police on Monday. Talking to NDTV, a senior Home Ministry official said that the two officials have been summoned on December 14 for deteriorating law and order in the state.
Shah had demanded a report from Mamata Banerjee-led Bengal government regarding ‘sponsored violence’. He had said that the Modi-led government was taking the incident seriously and the West Bengal government would have to respond to the peace-loving people of the state for this sponsored violence.
“Bengal has descended into an era of tyranny, anarchy, and darkness under the Trinamool rule. The manner in which political violence has been institutionalized and brought to the extreme in West Bengal under TMC rule is sad and worrying,” Shah wrote on Twitter.
