Mamata Attacks BJP Over Communal Clashes In Bengal


Siliguri: Trinamool Congress Chairperson and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has arrived Siliguri on Monday to address the party’s annual Student-Youth Convention for North Bengal on Monday.

The annual convention has been divided from this year into two conventions – a North Bengal Convention and a South Bengal Convention. It held at Kanchanjunga Stadium in Siliguri.

The Chief Minister accused the leaders and the workers of Bharatiy Janata Party of using the social media for wrong purposes like posting questionable and controversial pictures. She attacked directly to the Saffron Party that BJP likely to create communal clashes in Bengal.

CM Mamata Banerjee also asked the TMC leaders and workers to keep an eye out for the negative posts. She instructed them to approach the police as well as the administration if any inappropriate post is spotted on social media.

As earlier an ‘objectionable’ Facebook post about a religious site has triggered communal clashes in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district, prompting the Centre to rush 300 paramilitary personnel to bring the situation under control.

The Baduria clashes are the latest communal incidents in the state. Since October last year, at least 10 districts of West Bengal have seen similar communal incidents which are proving to be a major challenge for the state government. “Don’t see their colour or political affiliation. If anybody dares to foment communal trouble, give him a sound thrashing,” she attacked.

Mamata Banerjee slammed the Centre for its “casual” handling of the response to the tea garden workers wages. She further affirmed that the Central Govt is not willing to do anything for Bengals.

Along with one in North Bengal, a women convention will be organized in South Bengal on March 8. The Ministers have been told to organize North Bengal’s convention in Jalpaiguri. Parallely an all women rally to be organized in in each block on March 6 and March 7.
