Mamata Banerjee’s Fascist Regime in West Bengal

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-06-12

On Tuesday, the Janata Dal (United) heading the NDA government in Bihar, slammed Mamata Banerjee and her rule and said that West Bengal under Mamata Banerjee is fast turning into a 'mini Pakistan' from where Biharis are being driven out by 'Rohingyas'.


The scathing criticism of the West Bengal government by JD(U) followed close on the heels of Mamata lauding her Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar for deciding to contest assembly polls in four states separately.


Expressing concern over political clashes in the state, JD(U) spokesman Ajay Alok said, "What is happening in West Bengal is a matter of grave concern. I have been saying this for long.”


"I do not understand why she has thanked and commended our chief minister”.


"May be she is happy that the JD(U) is contesting elections in four states on its own, not as a part of the NDA," Alok told a news channel.


"But this gesture does not absolve her of her mistakes. She must act to prevent her state from degenerating into a mini-Pakistan," said the JD(U) spokesperson.


"Her thanksgiving cannot make us forget that Biharis are being assaulted in West Bengal and forced to leave the state," he added.


The JD(U), headed by Bihar Chief Minister Kumar as its national president, resolved Sunday to contest the assembly polls in Delhi, Jharkhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Haryana as part of its efforts to gain the status of a national party.


West Bengal has, of late, been witnessing a surge in incidents of violence, especially after the Lok Sabha elections in which the Trinamool Congress faced a crushing defeat.


On Saturday, one TMC worker and two BJP workers were killed during clashes in North 24 Parganas' Sandeshkhali. Both parties blamed each other for the alleged murder while claiming that many of their supporters have gone missing after the violence. Besides North 24 Parganas, several other districts including Howrah, Cooch Behar and West Burdwan were marred by violence.


Earlier, the Ministry of Home Affairs had expressed “deep concern” over continuing incidents of violence and asked the state government to maintain law and order.


Retorting to MHA advisory, Banerjee said that the violence was planted and that the central government and the (BJP) party cadre was trying to incite violence in West Bengal.
