Trinamool Congress secretary Partha Chatterjee on Tuesday said there was no post-poll violence and the Opposition leaders were trying to create panic among people. Talking to newsmen at Trinamool Congress office, he said if the Opposition had any specific complaints they should let the party know but instead they were making statements that had created panic among people.
Just before the election and when the poll was on the Opposition had made thousands of complaints but most of them were found to be false.
“The Opposition is making a drama just to woo people before the swearing-in of the new government. But the people of the state who have voted TMC back to power have understood the game plan of the Opposition,” he said.
Chatterjee had requested the state BJP president Dilip Ghosh not to make provocative statement.
“It is high time that he should have control over his tongue,” Chatterjeee said, adding that Ghosh’s statement that TMC MPs would be gheraoed in Delhi was unfortunate.
Sudip Bandopadhyay, party’s MP said such a statement by a senior leader was uncalled for. Chatterjee said Rupa Ganguly and Locket Chatterjee were also trying to provoke people.
Chatterjee said nine of their party workers had been killed by the Opposition parties.
Jaydeb Jana was killed a few days before the election in West Midnapore. The houses of party supporters had been set on fire. “We did not retaliate and our supporters have maintained cool,” he said, adding that TMC chief Mamata Bandopadhyay had asked everyone to maintain cool and do not swayed by the canard spread by the Opposition.
