| Published on:

The National President of Bharatiya Janata Party Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda addressed an important press conference in Kolkata on 5 May in view of the incidents of state sponsored violence, arson, looting and inhumane abuse of women in West Bengal and the violence was reported in the state. Terming this violence as a state sponsored, he described this as a Mamata Banerjee’s ‘Khela Hobe Day’. Here are the key points of his speech:

  • The Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda ji today protested in the West Bengal BJP state office in Hastings in Kolkata and protested against the large-scale violence by the Trinamool Congress party workers after election results and to establish democratic ideals and principles in the state. 
  • Under the leadership of Honourable National President all the elected BJP MLAs, all MPs, core committee members of the party and spokespersons took oath to continue their struggle for the formation of ‘Sonar Bangla’, to end political violence in the state and to re-establish democracy and republic in West Bengal.
  • The people of West Bengal have given the Bharatiya Janata Party responsibility to work as the main opposition party in the assembly and the state, we all will seriously take this responsibility as devoted workers of ‘Sonar Bangla’, and as citizens of India to fulfill our important duty of working as a constructive opposition.
  • Till now the Bharatiya Janata Party has strongly fought against political violence, appeasement and anarchy in West Bengal. We will not leave any stone unturned in our fight for ‘Sonar Bangla’ and will rest only after taking our fight to its logical end. 
  • What we saw during the last two days was mayhem, uncontrollable political violence that engulfed entire West Bengal. This is not only against the democratic ideals and principles; it is also insult to the rich culture and ethos of West Bengal. This cannot in any way reflect a progressive and mature society.
  • I went to the homes of our party members who were killed in the violence and met their family members, I cannot narrate their sorrow and grief in words. We will take our fight to its logical end and will not rest till we ensure justice for our departed party leaders and workers.
  • By following the principles laid down in our Constitution by Babasaheb Ambedkar ji and preserving our cultural and social diversity. We will move forward towards growth and development and take West Bengal forward under the leadership and guidance of Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji by following the path of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’.
  • Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has taken several important and unique initiatives to bring West Bengal to the mainstream of development and progress. The Bharatiya Janata Party will act as a responsible and constructive opposition party and help in progress, development and prosperity of West Bengal.
  • Today while taking oath, we want to tell the entire nation that whatever is happening in West Bengal today is totally unacceptable. The scenes which the nation saw during the Partition, it is being reflected again on the streets of West Bengal. Those who have the responsibility of providing peace and safety to the people West Bengal are themselves inciting violence.
  • The Trinamool Congress party has won, its leader has the right to take the oath; but we also take a pledge that we will end political violence from West Bengal and work towards strengthening our democracy.
  • Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda ji also visited Jagdatdal today where the goons of the Trinamool Congress party under the protection of the TMC government had killed Shobha Rani, the mother of the Bharatiya Janata Party booth president Kamal Mandal. The Bharatiya Janata Party National President spoke to the family members of Shobha Rani, offered his condolences and assured them that the BJP will ensure that all guilty people are punished severely.
