Kolkata: BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayavargiya on Wednesday asserted that the invitation of kin of deceased West Bengal party workers for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony should not be politicised.
The remark comes after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee reversed her earlier decision to announce that she will not attend Modi’s swearing-in ceremony on Thursday.
“It is a subject of Prime Minister’s swearing-in ceremony. Workers are coming to attend the ceremony. Bengal unit has also invited the families of the workers who have been killed. I feel, there is no need to politicise this issue,” he said, while adding that the TMC chief’s decision suggested that she may be riddled with guilt (chor ki daadi mein tinka).
