“When they (BJP) have no audience, they call their workers for doing Nautanki,” the Trinamool Congress chief said in Bengali
Banerjee claimed that the incident was a “drama” to deflect JP Nadda’s lack of presence at the rally. Banerjee said, “I think this is a drama to distract from his lack of attendance in his rally.”
Nadda’s convoy was allegedly shot dead by TRC workers at Siracol while he was traveling to Diamond Harbor in South 24 Parganas district.
Saying that no untoward incident took place in Siracol, Banerjee said that something happened in front of the tea shop and the police were asked to inquire into it.
“Your (Nadda’s) convoy had 50 cars, followed by 30 cars and 40 motorcycles by the media,” Banerjee said at a farmers rally here.
“So was that the plan?” He asked, when asked if a stone was hurled at the last car in the convoy and photographs and videos were taken for publicity.
She asked how can Nadda’s car be attacked when BJP leaders are protected by central security forces like CISF, CRPF or BSF.
“You depend on central forces. You provide central police security to so many people without informing the state,” she said.
The TMC supremo claimed that the state government is to blame if there is any kind of problem.
Banerjee alleged that whenever BJP workers go to Delhi, they create a ruckus in front of their residence or encirclement.
“Remember that you can only honor when you give it,” she said.
