Bharatiya Janata Party’s National Spokesperson Shri Zafar Islam, Member of Parliament Shri Soumitra Khan and Senior BJP Leader Dr. Anirban Ganguly held a joint press conference in BJP Central Office, New Delhi on 15 September, 2022 condemning the brutal police atrocities on the ‘Nabanna Chalo’ march of BJP leaders and Karyakartas in West Bengal.
According to BJP National Spokesperson Shri Zafar Islam, Mamata Banerjee’s dictatorship has gone beyond all reasonable bounds, and the brutal police atrocities used to stifle the democratic march of BJP leaders and karyakartas who raised their voice against corruption reveal her contradictory nature.
He further said that crores of rupees in cash were seized from the house of a person who was known to a former minister of the Mamta Government and he had also been arrested. And due to the evidence with the central investigative agencies, these corrupt are not getting relief from the court.
Senior BJP leader, Dr Anirban Ganguly said that the police of West Bengal has been completely politicised and police personnel have unnecessarily lathi-charged the BJP leaders and karyakartas who held a peaceful demonstration against corruption.
He added that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee used the word ‘shooting’ 30 times in a press conference held the very next day of the BJP’s Nabanna march which is a highly undemocratic and violent statement. The mindset of Mamata Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee is fascist. These people cannot tolerate democratic opposition. But the Bharatiya Janata Party will continue the struggle against corruption in West Bengal.
An important question is why the so-called intellectuals sitting in Delhi are silent on the incident of West Bengal, who raised their voice for the rights and democracy and the so-called intellectuals who wrote letters repeatedly to the President and Vice President?
On the other hand, MP Soumitra Mukherjee demanded the resignation of Mamata Banerjee. He said there have been many scams and corruption in West Bengal including coal scam, teacher recruitment scam, and cow smuggling, but instead of stopping corruption, they brutally attacked the BJP karyakartas who were agitating against the corruption.
