TMC Troll Garga Chatterjee spreads hate against non-Bengalis, gives thinly veiled threat of violence against non-Bengalis living in West Bengal

Garga Chatterjee had suggested that all of India's problems could be solved if Biharis, people from Uttar Pradesh, Marwadis and Gujaratis were restricted to their own states for their livelihood.

Trinamool Congress troll Garga Chatterjee, consistent with his track record, has been spreading hate on social media even during the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, he issued thinly veiled threats against non-Bengalis living in West Bengal. He has, for some time, been fanning the flames of linguistic chauvinism in the state. He wishes to recreate the brand of insensitive and incendiary linguistic politics that is observed within some circles in the southern states of India.

Earlier, Garga Chatterjee had suggested that all of India’s problems could be solved if Biharis, people from Uttar Pradesh, Marwaris and Gujaratis were restricted to their own states for their livelihood. It was the latest in a long tirade of hate speech he has made against people of other communities living in West Bengal.

Garga Chatterjee has also demonstrated an unhealthy obsession with Gutkha, much more than is warranted from a person who does not appear to consume it himself. His obsession is such that his twitter feed can be considered an unpaid advertisement for Gutkha companies. His unhealthy brand of politics can be perfectly described metaphorically as the ‘Gutkha Pill‘, along the lines of the ‘Red Pill’ and ‘Saffron Pill’.

He also carries forward the thinking of some Bengalis in 19th century who believed that Assamese is not an independent language and it is just a dialect of Bengali, as he believes that Assam is a Bengali language majority state. He says Assam has been a Bengali majority state ever since the state existed on the face of this earth. Garga also claims that people in Assam falsely report their mother tongue as Assamese during census because Hiren Gohain (a communist intellectual) or Paresh Barua (chief of banned ULFA) want them to do so.

Garga Chatterjee has, in the past, behaved in a manner where he has gotten himself embarrassed due to his obsession with linguistic politics. On one occasion, he appeared on a debate show knowing full well that it was to be conducted in Hindi and then started speaking in Bangla to make his point. Despite his crass behaviour, mainstream media continues to promote him as an ‘intellectual’, allowing his a platform to further spread his hatred.
