TMC leader Madan Mitra has given a big statement regarding the uproar in Nabanna March.
The TMC leader said that those who attacked the police can be taught a lesson in just 10 minutes.
BJP has retaliated on the statement of TMC leader.
Kolkata. Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Madan Mitra on Sunday courted controversy by remarking that those involved in violence and attacks on police during the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) march to the West Bengal Secretariat were “taught a lesson in just ten minutes”. However, former state minister Mitra also said that the TMC is not in favor of such action in retaliation for the “disruptive policies” of the BJP. Mitra said he only wanted to tell the BJP what “the TMC can do but will not go to that extent”.
On the other hand, senior BJP leader Rahul Sinha hit back saying that TMC leaders are continuously making dangerous comments and they have lost the support of the people. MLA Mitra said at a public meeting in his Kamarhati constituency, “If there is a direction from the top level of the party, then (during March) there will be hooliganism and vandalism, damage to government properties and beating up those who threaten TMC and administration. It will not take more than ten minutes. We will see more such comments made by these leaders to intimidate the opposition. But the days of TMC are few.
TMC MP Shantanu Sen said that the BJP has no support of the people of Bengal, so the comments of leaders like Sinha should not be given importance. Significantly, parts of Kolkata and Howrah districts were turned into battlefields on Tuesday due to clashes with police by BJP workers during a protest march to ‘Nabanna’, the state secretariat of West Bengal. During this many top BJP leaders were detained. At the same time, a day after the Nabanna March, CM Mamata Banerjee made serious allegations against the BJP in a program. He had said that the BJP had brought goons in its march, who even had bombs.
