BJP national general secretary and in-charge of Bengal Kailash Vijayvargiya has accused the Bengal police of violating human rights during the party's state secretariat march. The BJP leader said that the party would go to court for justice regarding the inhuman behavior done by the police.
He alleged that the Bengal government was following double rules, one for the BJP and the other for the ruling Trinamool Congress. He said that the Covid-19 guidelines were violated during the Trinamool rallies against the alleged Hathras scandal and agriculture related laws but no action was taken against it.
The BJP leader said that the manner in which BJP workers were treated during the democratic march towards the Secretariat on Thursday is unprecedented and unacceptable. "The police threw bombs on our workers, vandalized their buses and violated human rights. Our party workers were beaten up and the police also misbehaved with our women activists," he said.
Kailash Vijayvargiya questioned that is this your (police) way of dealing with opposition party workers? He alleged that false cases were registered against BJP workers after the rally. "We will go to the court and the Human Rights Commission to get justice against the atrocities committed by the Bengal Police. A day earlier, the police have registered a case against the party's national vice-president Mukul Roy, MPs Arjun Singh, Chatterjee and Vijayvargiya etc. These leaders have been charged with rioting and violation of epidemic disease law. Vijayvargiya accused the state's Trinamool government of hurting the sentiments of the community over the issue of allegedly attacking a Sikh and pulling a turban by the police during a party rally in Howrah.
He accused the ruling party that it has been proved that people of other communities are not treated with respect except in a particular community. The BJP has been accusing the Trinamool of playing minority cards for a long time.
