In an interview with Aaj Tak, BJP president lambasted at Mamata for repeatedly targeting the BJP in Bengal and said that wherever there is Mamata, there is violence. “Mamata Banerjee is frustrated with the public’s anger against her and she is the reason for it. We had planned a yatra to reach the masses and tell the people our agenda and ideology. It was not given permission. 70 BJP rallies were not given permission. Our leaders were not allowed to land their helicopters in Bengal,” said Amit Shah.

He furthered, “All this happens only in West Bengal. Even we have governments in 16 states but no opposition leader is ever stopped.”


Talking about political violence Bengal has been experiencing this election season, Amit Shah said that the people of Bengal are heading towards change, They want to shun the present government, “Bengal wants to change. If BJP wins in Bengal, violence will stop,” said Shah.

West Bengal has witnessed immense violence this poll season. Recently, BJP President, Amit Shah’s roadshow in Bengal was marred with severe violence. So much so that in an unprecedented decision the Election Commission had to cut short the campaign for the last round of voting in Bengal. Talking on this Election Commission’s decision, BJP President Amit Shah lashed out at West Bengal Chief Minister calling her frustrated.

He strongly held Bengal’s Mamata Banerjee responsible for the spate of violence in the state, “Such violence is not seen in any other state in India. There is peace in rest of India. Where there’s Mamata, there’s violence,” claimed Amit Shah.

“We attack Mamata Banerjee’s governance, she attacks our workers. Our workers were killed,” said the BJP president as he claims that under Mamata’s rule 60 BJP karyakarta’s have been killed.

She wants to silence her opponents by inflicting violence, but Shah was certain that the May 23 results would show the path, TMC would be wiped out from Bengal, said the visibly irked Shah.

Addressing to the TMC’s allegation that the BJP has hurt Bengali pride by vandalising the bust of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar in Kolkata Shah said, “It is us who are trying to protect Bengali pride. The TMC is broke the statue of a social reformer like Vidyasagar for their dirty politics. Mamata Banerjee doesn’t know the legacy of Vidyasagar otherwise she would not sink to such low levels.”

Defending his party workers Amit Shah maintained that there was an 11-foot gate which his karyakarta’s never crossed. The Trinamool goons were inside the college campus where the bust of Vidyasagar was destroyed. Moreover, the media witnessed that the lock of the room where the bust was kept was opened not broken, how would BJP karyakarta’s acquire the keys to the lock, questioned Shah, as he asserted that Mamata was using Bengal’s emotions to play petty politics.

Amit Shah, contrary to the allegations meted by the opposition that EC is working on the Central government’s instructions damned the poll panels to be biased in Bengal. “EC did not ban Mamata Banerjee for her inch-by-inch revenge jibe…History-sheeters are arrested during elections across the country. In Bengal, they are released after furnishing a bond. The EC should explain to the public that they are doing this because of Mamata Banerjee. The public deserves to know,” Amit Shah said.

However, he denied the allegation that EC ban on campaigning in Bengal was meant to favour the BJP. “Even our 12 rallies were curbed. This has been done for all parties,” Amit Shah clarified.

“What Bengali pride is Mamata talking about? Mamata has throttled the state’s dignity by opening doors for Bangladeshi infiltrators so that her vote bank remains intact,” said Shah. Expressing concern over the alarming condition of the state where people need the High Court’s permission to celebrate Durga Puja, Shah confidentially declared that the Bengal wind was undergoing a change and BJP would win at least 23 seats in West Bengal in this Lok Sabha elections.
