Mukul Roy Writes To Amit Shah On Post-Poll Situation


Kolkata: West Bengal BJP leader Mukul Roy has written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, claiming that there has been a “complete breakdown” of the state machinery in the state.

Post-poll violence in the state has escalated with both BJP and TMC accusing the other of stoking political unrest. Mukul Roy’s letter was in response to the letter submitted by the Trinamool Congress to the Home Ministry.

Mukul Roy claimed that “there is complete anarchy and chaos throughout the state of West Bengal”.

He claimed that political violence in the state was carried out by TMC workers at the behest of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. “All the incidents of violence throughout the state have been carried out by cadres of Trinamool Congress with the active help and support of the administration at the direct insistence of TMC supremo the Hon’ble Chief Minister of the State Mamata Banerjee,” Mukul Roy wrote in his letter to Amit Shah.

In his letter, Mukul Roy wrote, “There has been a complete breakdown of state machinery and if steps are not taken urgently to contain the situation, the same will go out of hands.”

Clashes between the ruling TMC and the BJP took place in several districts, including North 24 Parganas, Coochbehar, Howrah and West Burdwan, resulting in many deaths and injuries. The saffron party leaders are claiming that they would dethrone TMC in the legislative assembly in 2021. In one of the worst post-poll clashes in the state on Saturday, three persons were killed and some others are claimed to be missing at Sandeshkhali in North 24 Parganas district.

Mukul Roy, who was once the number two in the Trinamool Congress, switched over to the saffron camp in 2017 and is considered as a key strategist behind the stupendous performance of the BJP in the state.
