BJP will send a Parliamentary delegation to observe the situation after communal tension at Dhulagarh in Howrah district of West Bengal. Addressing media persons on Tuesday at the party headquarters, BJP’s national spokesperson Siddharth Nath Singh said: “After a discussion with party president Amit Shah, we have taken the decision to send a delegation to Dhulagarh.” 

“The state wing of the party and the party’s state president Dilip Ghosh will move to National Human Rights Commission and submit a memorandum,” he added. 

Last week during Eid-ul-Milad, some people threw bombs on some houses and vandalised the procession, leading to communal tension. Scared by this, some people left their homes with women and children. After the residents of the area left their homes, some anti-social elements allegedly looted the homes and also set them on fire. 

BJP has been criticising the reported communal tension across the state. This time also, the party alleged that the incumbent Trinamool Congress’ minority wing and its Parliamentarian Idris Ali are responsible for the alleged communal riot. 

During the press conference here, party’s national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh added that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is pursuing a policy of minority’s appeasement for the sake of vote bank.
