Malda: BJP leader Locket Chatterjee said that those who are trying to stop BJP’s rath yatra “will get crushed under the wheels of the chariot”. Addressing a public meeting on Saturday, Locket, the chief of the BJP Bengal women’s wing said these.
The BJP has planned three rath yatras in West Bengal on December 5, 6 and 7. The rath yatras, which will cover 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, will be kicked off by party chief Amit Shah. At the conclusion of the yatras, the BJP plans to hold a massive rally in Kolkata, which is likely to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The yatras are being organised to restore democracy in the state, said the BJP. Chatterjee said, “The main purpose of the rath yatras is to restore democracy in West Bengal. We have said this earlier too that the heads of those who try to stop the ‘rath yatras’ will get crushed under the wheels of the chariot.”
Condemning Ms Chatterjee’s comment, Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee said that the BJP leaders are making provocative statements to disturb peace and stability of the state. “The BJP’s main aim is to push its communal agenda in Bengal. That is why they are making these provocative comments. But the people of Bengal will defeat the divisive politics of the BJP,” said the Trinamool leader.
