TMC’s Madan Mitra blames RSS for ‘attack’ on Mamata, compares it to Godhra carnage

While Mitra did not explicitly compare the incident with Mamata Banerjee to the Godhra carnage, that he believes that the incident would 'lead to Godhra like riots' could mean only one thing.

TMC leader Madan Mitra on Thursday in a veiled attack on the RSS claimed that the alleged ‘attack’ on Mamata Banerjee was carried out by ‘trained men in nikkars (knickers)’. Banerjee on Wednesday injured herself when her car door hit against a pillar. She had accused ‘4-5 men’ of attacking and pushing her. However, the eyewitnesses said otherwise.

Comparing the ‘attack’ to Godhra carnage, Mitra claimed that had the same incident taken place in any other states, like Gujarat, it would have become ‘another Godhra’. In 2002, a Muslim mob set a train on fire in Godhra, Gujarat, killing 59 karsevaks returning from Ayodhya. Subsequently, violent communal riots broke in Gujarat, leaving hundreds dead.
