Panchayat Polls

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday called Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee “ruthless,” while claiming that at least 45 people were killed during the Panchayat Polls.

The saffron party accused the West Bengal government of orchestrating the mayhem in the state and called it “state-sponsered violence.”

“Going by media reports, at least 45 people were killed during the panchayat poll violence. Bombing, bogus voting and rigging are the most used words in media reports… This is ‘nirmamata’ (ruthlessness) and not ‘mamata’ (endearment),” said BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra.

“These are state-sponsored institutionalised murders… Nirmam Bandyopadhyay (ruthless Mamata Banerjee), who used to talk ‘maa, maati,manush’, is being a mute spectator,” he added.

On the day of election, polling booths were vandalised, ballot boxes were stolen and abandoned in garbage, while bombings also took place at rival political workers.

Meanwhile, TMC leader Bablu Supriyo lashed out at Sambt Patra and said, “The @BJP4India seems to be struggling to find solid ground. Their aimless attacks without evidence are truly remarkable!”

“It’s not surprising, though. Their deep-seated fear of rejection has them grasping at straws. The people of Bengal have spoken loud and clear, shutting the door on their divisive politics once again. But isn’t it interesting how they conveniently forget to introspect before hurling accusations at others? Remember when LoP @SuvenduWB openly encouraged ballot box vandalism? The BJP’s silence was deafening!” wrote Supriyo in a tweet.
