‘Cannot allow Hindus to vote anymore,’ Trinamool Rajya Sabha MP tells party workers

The 2019 Lok Sabha elections witnessed great violence and rampant rigging by the Trinamool Congress. Yet, they were unable to suppress the saffron surge.

Subhashish Chakraborty, Rajya Sabha MP and District President of the Trinamool Congress in South 24 Paraganas, has been caught on camera issuing directives to his cadres that Hindus will not be allowed to vote in the future, Bengali portal ei bangla 24×7 has reported.

In the video, Chakraborty can be heard saying, “Hindus there cannot be allowed to vote any more.” The comment was made while analysing the results of the Lok Sabha elections in which the BJP managed to increase its tally to 18 seats in the state. It was made after it was discovered that a certain village had voted greatly in favour of the BJP. While analysing booth wise voting pattern, Chakraborty said that it is OK that CPM has increased their votes in some booths, but asked the party workers to take care of booths where BJP got majority votes. When his aide said that these are Hindu majority areas, he said that Hindus won’t be allowed to vote any more.

It is pertinent to remember that Hindus were prevented from voting in various constituencies across the state even this time around. Hindu voters were stopped from voting in Raiganj and Medinipur.

Communal violence was reported in Diamond Harbour, too, while elections were on, a constituency in South 24 Paraganas itself. A Trinamool hand was suspected behind the violence which reportedly caused many Hindus to flee the area ahead of voting. Trinamool had won all the four Lok Sabha seats in the district handsomely.

A post-poll CSDS survey showed that there indeed had been a great consolidation of Hindus behind the BJP in Bengal as well while Muslims consolidated in favour of Trinamool which led to the utter collapse of the Left.

The 2019 Lok Sabha elections witnessed great violence and rampant rigging by the Trinamool Congress. Yet, they were unable to suppress the saffron surge. It appears that the party has now decided to punish the Hindu community specifically for exercising their constitutional right to vote.
