Sarma: Around 400 BJP workers, families fled to Assam after poll violence in Bengal


Guwahati/Agartala, May 4 (IANS): Around 400 BJP functionaries and their family members fled from West Bengal to Assam following the post-poll violence in Bengal, senior BJP leader and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma claimed on Tuesday night.

Sarma, who is the convener of the BJP-led anti-Congress alliance of regional parties -- North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) -- said in a tweet: "In a sad development, 300-400 Bengal karyakartas (functionaries) and their family members have crossed over to Dhubri in Assam after being confronted with brazen persecution and violence. We're giving shelter and food."

"Didi must stop this ugly dance of demonocracy," Sarma said, tagging @MamataOfficial in his tweet.

Sources in Assam police also said that a few hundred men, women and children took shelter in western Assam's Dhubri district, who are being given food and shelter by the local people and the district administration.

In Agartala, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that the BJP would organise protests on Wednesday and Thursday across the country against the post-poll violence in Trinamool-ruled West Bengal.

Deb, also a former state president of BJP, claimed that at least six partymen were murdered and scores were injured in the post-poll violence in Bengal.

Demanding to stop the "barbaric violence" immediately, the Chief Minister said that except in Bengal, no violence has been reported from the four other states/UT that went to the polls.

He said that in Tripura, five candles would be lit by each of the party functionaries, MLAs, ministers, local leaders and workers in their areas on Wednesday by maintaining the Covid related protocols to protest against the political violence in Bengal.

"Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee did not win in Nandigram. Had I lost the election myself, I would not have sat on the CM's chair. It's a question of morality," Deb said.

    Something doesn't fit right, if there was so much violence why PM didn't declare president rule and sent the Army?. This looks like some kind of Drama meant for buying MLA's again.

    All these party workers were having a field day while their Netas were busy in abusing the opposite party leaders in the worst ever street language without realising the end result. Now it's take back times for these poor fellows while their Netas disappeared from the scene. Anyway not to worry they will be taken care of from the cares fund.

    You cannot simply assume this as true unless you verify the facts. These days even pictures cannot be trusted unless verified.

    If it is true, that the exodus was due to TMC workers atrocities, I think it is absolutely wrong from the part of tmc workers. Loosing and winning is part of any competition, attacks on losers is unfair. By the way, I am not a bjp supporter.

    BJP having got a defeat is creating violence to blame TMC. If you were to ask the CM of Assam how many corona cases in Assam he won't know, but he already counted 400 families fled Bengal ;) Stooping too low just because all the heavy weights of BJP could not win against one lady.
