BJP General Secretary accusing West Bengal of “criminalization of police” Kailash Vijayvargiya Said on Sunday that the Election Commission should keep the state police away from the next assembly elections to conduct free and fair elections. Vijayvargiya is the general secretary in charge of West Bengal in the BJP organization, where assembly elections are likely in April-May next year. In these elections, the challenge before the opposition BJP is to penetrate the stronghold of Mamata Banerjee-led ruling Trinamool Congress.
Vijayvargiya told reporters here, “The law and order in West Bengal has collapsed. Intruders are coming there. Now the supari killings (killing ransom by miscreants) of political activists have also started there.” “In view of these challenging circumstances, we have asked the central government to impose either President’s rule in West Bengal or the Election Commission to ensure that the people there (in the next assembly elections) can vote fearlessly,” he said.
Vijayvargiya said, “Recently the Election Commission representatives had come to Kolkata. They have promised that they will make adequate deployment of central forces during the next assembly elections, but we have made another demand from them that the state police be kept away from the election process Go because the police has been criminalized along with the politicization of the police there. ” He said that in West Bengal, the BJP will contest the next assembly elections on its own with the goal of securing more than 50 percent votes and in this eastern state, the party does not need the electoral support of any other party.
Former Vice President Hamid Ansari recently said that before the Corona virus crisis, Indian society had become the victim of two epidemics – religious bigotry and aggressive nationalism. Seeking a response to this statement, Vijayvargiya claimed that he had seen at an event that Ansari, while holding the post of vice-president, did not attend the traditional ritual of lighting the lamp during the inaugural session. He said, “I saw him in a program when he (Ansari) was the Vice President. (In the program) when the inauguration lamp (lamp) was being lit, he did not light the lamp and stood up. At the time) they did not even take off their shoes. “
The BJP general secretary said, “Since he was the Vice President and there is a dignity of the post, we did not say anything at that time. Otherwise his radicalism was visible when he did not light the lamp.” Vijayvargiya, however, did not say in his statement that when and where was the alleged event he is referring to on the stage with Ansari’s presence?
