SENIOR BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday criticised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for letting loose a reign of terror during the rural polls and wondered why the central leadership of the Congress and the Left are silent on it.
A four-member BJP fact-finding team to West Bengal, led by the former Union Minister, said that the State unit’s demand for implementing Article 355 is “justifiable”.
“We had immense respect for Mamataji when she defeated the 34-year-old Left regime in the State. Today, I want to gently remind Mamataji about her evolution in Bengal and national politics. She was a fighter. But unfortunately, her Government has crossed even the records of the Left regarding misrule, anarchy and lawlessness in the State,” he said.
The BJP leader told reporters, “Her politics is now full of atrocities, which was not evident even during the Left rule.”
The TMC mocked the fact-finding team and said it was
an attempt to divert people’s attention from the party’s humiliating defeat.
