Mamata’s speeches fuelled clashes claims BJP
Sandeshkhali (WB): BJP leader Mukul Roy on Tuesday blamed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the violence in Sandeshkhali that claimed three lives, saying her speeches “fuelled” the attacks on supporters of the saffron party.
The BJP leader, who visited Bhangipara village and met the families of Pradip Mondal and Sukanta Mondal killed in the clashes, said he would appeal to party president Amit Shah to do whatever was required for the assistance of the victims’ kin. “If anybody is to be blamed for the incident, it is Mamata Banerjee,” Roy said, alleging that it was on her directives that no one has been arrested so far in connection with the killings.
“Pradip and Sukanta were sleeping in their homes in the afternoon. They were dragged out and killed by TMC workers,” he claimed.
Kayoom Mollah, whom the TMC claims was it’s active worker, was also killed in the Saturday clashes, one of the worst post-poll violence in West Bengal.
The TMC, however, has charged the BJP with attacking its party workers on that day. On Saturday, at least three men were killed in North 24 Parganas district’s Sandeshkhali area in clashes between TMC and BJP workers. (PTI)
