BJP to highlight worsening law and order in Bengal
The state BJP leaders have planned to highlight the failure of the state government in every sphere and the deteriorating law and order situation in Bengal.
A state BJP delegation will meet President Pranab Mukherjee in Delhi soon and submit a memorandum.
The central leaders including Siddharthnath Singh, Kailash Vijayvargiya and Nirmala Sitharaman will accompany the state leaders, party’s state president Dilip Ghosh said on Friday.
He said the party workers who had been beaten up by Trinamool Congress supporters or goons backed by the party would be there in the team.
Ghosh said that law and order situation in the state had turned from bad to worse. He said BJP workers had been assaulted in the districts. The police had refused to register their complaints and on many occasions false charges were made against the party workers.
“We want an end to this and so a delegation will meet the President and submit a memorandum to him,” he said.
Meanwhile, the BJP has chalked out a month-long programme to highlight the failure of the state government. On January 21, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will address a rally at Barasat in North 24-Parganas.
The Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari will address a rally in south Dinajpur on January 18. The Union minister for Human Resource and Development Smriti Irani will address a meeting in Burdwan on January 22 and the party’s national president Amit Shah will address a rally on January 25 in Howrah.
Ghosh said they will deploy well trained BJP workers at poll booths. There are 77,000 odd booths in West Bengal.
Meanwhile, the RSS workers have already started meeting local youth in Behala, Jadavpur, parts of south Kolkata like Bhowanipore and Ballygunge where the party base is strong.
It may be recalled that Trinamool Congress candidate Subrata Bakshi had trailed behind his rival candidate in Bhowanipore segment. Bhowanipore is Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Assembly seat.
RSS leaders said they would mobilise their workers who would not leave the booths in case of threats by Trinamool supporters.
The meeting was held in the city in the presence of central leaders including Singh and Vijayvargiya and former state president Rahul Sinha. They discussed the blueprint to be followed in the upcoming Assembly elections.
