Partha slams BJP over 'hooliganism' under guise of bike rallies
Kolkata: Senior Trinamool Congress leader Partha Chatterjee on Monday took a dig at the BJP once again, for its attempt to indulge hooliganism in the name of organising 'Protirodh Sankalp Abhiyan', a week-long bike rally event by its youth wing.
Chatterjee said it was a deliberate attempt by the BJP to break the law and order situation in the state, especially ahead of the bypolls at Noapara and Uluberia Assembly constituencies.
He also pointed out that many of the bikes that were used in the rally, bore a number plate of Uttar Pradesh.
He said the matter will be brought to the notice of police administration, who will take action in this regard. The motorcycles which were bearing number plates of Uttar Pradesh have already been identified,
"BJP leaders were making provocative statements in order to trigger tension in the state. They tried to spew poison in the name of communalism. As they were rejected by the people in Bengal, they started hurling abusive words. People here in the state will never like the politics of hatred," Chatterjee said.
"While the Centre is trying to put Bengal under financial difficulties, the state BJP is trying all possible options to create a law and order problem here in Bengal," he added.
He also added that people have seen the developments which have taken place in the state in past few years.
After failing to give a reply to the development works initiated by the state government, the BJP leaders have chosen the dirty
politics of communalism.
It may be mentioned here that Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha's Bengal unit had called for 'Protirodh Sankalp Abhiyan', a week-long programme of bike rallies across the state.
A clash had broken out on Friday between workers of the ruling Trinamool Congress and activists of BJP's youth wing.
