Mamata Banerjee says BJP’s victory rallies are ‘inciting violence’, orders ban

Mamata Banerjee has also shown the strange tendency to get irritated and angry by the chanting of 'Jai Shriram'. On several occasions, she has been lashing out at people and threatening action over the chanting of 'Jai Shriram'.

As BJP is making huge inroads in the state, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who seems to be fearful of her opponent’s outreach has now banned victory processions of the BJP claiming it would ‘trigger violence’ across Bengal.

According to the reports, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has issued a diktat to the police ordering them to take strong action against BJP leaders if they create any trouble by holding victory rallies in the state. Mamata Banerjee has dictated that there should not be any more victory march in the state as over 2 weeks have passed since the announcement of the Lok Sabha election results.

Mamata Banerjee had visited the home of local party leader Nirmal Kundu, who was killed at Nimta in North 24 Parganas in the political violence that took place in the state recently. During the event, Banerjee instructed the police not to allow BJP to take victory rallies citing law and order problems and said the police should take action against the BJP leaders who try to disturb law and order.

The Bharatiya Janata Party which made a grand entry into the state of West Bengal by winning 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats has pushed the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee into irrelevance in national politics. Political violence has been a burning issue in West Bengal as there have been dozens of murders and attacks before and during the elections.

It is notable here that, Mamata Banerjee, who also keeps the home ministry portfolio in Bengal, had also banned BJP’s Rath Yatra campaign last year, citing ‘law and order’ issues. Her government had also stopped many BJP leaders from holding rallies in the state by refusing permission for landing choppers.

Amidst these acts of violence, Mamata Banerjee has also shown her opposition to Hindus raising religious slogans of “Jai Shri Ram”. Recently West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee got irked by these slogans and was also seen lashing out at the people and threatening to take action against the people chanting Jai Shri Ram.

Later, she had also unleashed her state police force to arrest few people for chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans in the state.
