WB suffering from total lawlessness, Mamata Banerjee will be sent on leave: Nadda

BJP national president J P Naddaon Thursday said West Bengal is suffering from “totallawlessness” as the administration has crumbled and cut moneyculture has become the order of the day.

Nadda who was addressing a press conference here, saidthe attack on his convoy at Diamond Harbour during the dayspoke a lot about the “mentality and frustration” of theMamata Banerjee government in the state.

Stones were thrown at Naddas convoy by allegedTrinamool Congress workers when he was travelling to DiamondHarbour in South 24 Parganas district from Kolkata on Thursdayto address a rally there.

“What will be the plight of the common man whenelected members are not safe? There is total lawlessness.

Bengal is suffering from lawlessness, the administration hascrumbled,” Nadda said.

Claiming that “cut money has become the order of theday in Bengal under TMC dispensation”, Nadda said the”anarchic” TMC government will be removed “lock stock andbarrel” in the state election due in April-May 2021.

“Political patronage by the Mamata Banerjee governmentis being provided for those involved in tolabaji (extortion),sand and coal syndicates. Even while performing last rites,people have to pay bribes. The people of Bengal are not goingto spare the TMC this time. They are going to send MamataBanerjee on leave after the 2021 assembly polls,” he said.

Reacting to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjees statementquestioning how his car could be attacked when BJP leaders areprotected by central security forces like the CISF, CRPF orBSF, Nadda said, “She has zero idea about how administrationworks”.

“The job of CISF, CRPF is not to stop those peltingstones but to protect the subject. It is the job of the statepolice to stop the stone throwers,” he said.

Asked whether he is in favour of imposition ofPresidents Rule in the state, Nadda said the BJP wants todefeat the TMC democratically and will do so in the stateelection next year.

Speaking about the ongoing farmers protest, Naddasaid dialogue is the way forward to resolve the issue.

“Our leaders have repeatedly spoken to the leaders ofthe farmers. All of us want to move forward through dialogue.

But I can assure one thing that all the issues raised by thefarmers have been answered and they dont need to worry aboutit. The process of dialogue is the way forward,” he said.

The BJP president said the Citizenship Amendment Acthas been passed in Parliament. “Now the rules are gettingframed. Once the rules are framed, they will be implemented.

The Act will be implemented in West Bengal too”.

Nadda had arrived here on Wednesday on a two-day visitto take stock of the activitIes of the partys state unit andparticipate in an ongoing mass outreach campaign taken upahead of the 2021 assembly poll.
