Union Home Minister Amit Shah, on Thursday, condemned the attack on BJP chief JP Nadda’s convoy in West Bengal and sought a report from the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government on the serious security lapses. “Bengal has descended into an era of tyranny, anarchy and darkness under the Trinamool rule. The manner in which political violence has been institutionalised and brought to the extreme in West Bengal under TMC rule is sad and worrying,” Shah said in a tweet.
The Centre also sent a communication to West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar seeking a report on the law and order situation in the state. Nadda’s convoy was allegedly attacked by a mob when he was on his way to Diamond Harbour in Kolkata. Visuals showed that several cars which were a part of the convoy were damaged with stones and bricks.
In a letter to Shah, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said that the attack on Nadda’s convoy was due to the casual approach of the state police.
Dilip Ghosh said that some protesters climbed the vehicles parked outside BJP office
“During his (Nadda’s) different engagements in Kolkata, it was observed that there were serious lapses on security arrangements, purportedly due to negligence and/or casual approach of the state police department,” Ghosh said in his letter.
Ghosh further alleged that some of the protesters climbed on cars parked outside BJP office and raised slogans. “Police did not intervene to stop them and casually allowed them to come within a close perimeter of Nadda ji’s vehicle,” Ghosh further said.
