The instigators are murderers, says Partha
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee on Sunday alleged that those who are instigating violence are 'murderers'. "It is important to find out those who are trying to deteriorate the law and order situation across the state," he said. On the same day, the Union Home Ministry issued an advisory note to the state government over the law and order situation. Later, Chatterjee criticised the step of sending the note.
On Sunday night, Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi expressed his concern over the incident of Sandeshkhali. He also expressed his sympathy for the families and near ones of the deceased and appealed to all concerned to see to it that no violent incidents take place further.
In the advisory note, the Centre has asked Bengal to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to maintain law and order across the state. The state government has also been requested to take strict action against the officials who are found delinquent in discharge of their duties. After the advisory note was received, Chatterjee protested the step and stated that when there is peace in the state, the Centre is deliberately sending such advisory notes. He also raised questions about why any advisory note was not issued for the Gujarat government, despite several instances of violence there.
Chatterjee slammed the saffron party without mentioning their name during a programme. He stated that the BJP's aim is to take over the state and for that they are resorting to violence and murdering Trinamool workers. "There will be resistance but it will be non-violent. They have no words of development and they are planning to murder Trinamool workers to create an unstable law and order situation," Chatterjee said.
