BJP demands Mamata Banerjee’s resignation as West Bengal Home Minister in the wake of violence across the state

Political violence in West Bengal has become a routine. Several instances of violence were reported during the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, while many such incidents continued to be reported after the polls.

BJP has demanded the resignation of West Bengal Chief Minister and All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) Chief Mamata Banerjee as the Home Minister of the state. BJP leader Mukul Roy has demanded Banerjee’s resignation in the wake of the recent incidents of violence in the State.

Political violence in West Bengal has become a routine. Several instances of violence were reported during the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, while many such incidents continued to be reported after the polls.

Recently, clashes had broken out during BJP’s victory processions at Buniyadpur, and Gangarampur in the South Dinajpur district. These clashes were allegedly triggered when police entered into the victory processions accompanied by TMC workers who beat up BJP workers. The situation escalated quickly and police started charging batons and using teargas shells to disperse the crowd. Several BJP workers were injured during these clashes.

Later, the situation further aggravated when police reportedly prevented BJP workers from holding the funeral of BJP workers allegedly killed during the clashes in Basirhat’s Sandeshkhali.

In protest, BJP observed the black day in West Bengal today. 12-hour long general strike in Basirhat sub-division followed by a condemnation march to the Kolkata Police headquarters on June 12 has also been planned as a part of the protest.
