New Delhi । BJP President Amit Shah accused Trinamool Congress (TMC) for violence in West Bengal during his road Show.
‘Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is alleging that the BJP is spreading violence in the state. She is contesting on only 42 seats but the BJP is contesting across the country. No incident of violence have been reported from anywhere except Bengal. This means Trinamool is responsible for the violence”, said Amit Shah
Shah accused TMC “goons” of vandalising the statue of social reformer Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar during his roadshow in Kolkata. Amit Shah held a road show in Kolkata on 14th May, which ended with the reports of clashes and Violence in Bengal.
Addressing the media at the Bharatiya Janata Party headquarters, Shah said, “Six phases of the elections have been completed throughout the country but incidents of violence are happening only in West Bengal.’
He said three attacks took place during his roadshow but the state police remained mere spectators.
He also accused Banerjee of conspiring to vandalise Vidyasagar’s statue in an effort to gain sympathy.
ईश्वर चंद्र विद्यासागर जी की प्रतीमा को TMC ने तोड़ा है।
जहाँ प्रतिमा रखी थी वो जगह कमरों के अंदर है। कॉलेज बंद हो चुका था, सब लॉक था, फिर कमरे किसने खोले?
अपनी गंदी राजनीति के लिए TMC ने महान शिक्षाशास्त्री की प्रतिमा का तोड़ा है।

“The gate of the college was closed and the BJP workers were outside. Trinamool goons were pelting stones from inside. This was a conspiracy and drama by Mamata Banerjee to gain sympathy. Vandalising a statue for vote bank makes it clear that the Trinamool Congress is losing badly in this election.
“All these prove that Trinamool Congress goons vandalised the statue,” he said.
Shah also claimed that he survived on Tuesday because of the CRPF’s presence in Kolkata.
“It would have been difficult for me to come out unharmed if the CRPF was not there,” he said showing photographs
