RSS is all set to push for President`s rule in West Bengal with full bloom Cow Politics.CPIM opposes.
Mamata deploys sixty thousand peacekeeping committee civilians to counter RSS Game plan of communal violence.Should be replicated elsewhere.
RSS is all set to push for President`s rule in West Bengal with full bloom Cow Politics.Mamta Banerjee is appealing for peace and decided to create sixty thousand booth level peace committes to counter RSS provoked violence.She has got an unexpected but very welcomesupport from the archrival Left as CPIM has opposed BJP demand for President Rule.
Mamata Banerjee has explained that the police and administration tried its best to control the rioting mob as for three days,Kolkata adjoing Muslim dominated North 24 pgs district is inflicted with communal violence.Had police opened fire to control or disperse the mob,hundreds would have been killed,it is her point.
Mamata`s peace committes to counter communal violence at grass root level is rather a very strong initiative as rumour monger mmachinery active in social media creating Hindutva wave and breaking news that temples are attacked by Muslims and Hindus are not safe in Bengal.It is now very clear that RSS is behind Gorkhaland movement as it openly supports partition of Bengal.At the same time ,different branches of RSS have been organizing cadre camps to capture Bengal and cows are being distibuted free of cost.
It is perhaps first time that the left has openly supported Mamata Banerjee as the CPI-M on Wednesday said that the situation prevailing in West Bengal does not call for imposition of President's rule, but demanded immediate restoration of peace in the troubled areas of North 24-Parganas district.
President of BJP's West Bengal wing, Dilip Ghosh, has demanded that the Centre impose President's rule in West Bengal and send central observers to assess the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, however, proposed the deployment of peacekeeping forces, or a 'Shanti Vahini' on Wednesday evening, to maintain communal harmony.
Banerjee said that this 'Shanti Vahini' would be formed in 15 days in collaboration with youth and peaceful citizens and the local police stations. It would be stationed in 60,000-odd booths across the state to maintain communal harmony.
West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose said that by demanding President' rule in Bengal, the BJP and the RSS were only laying bare their game plan.
"Steps should be taken to immediately restore peace in areas of North 24-Parganas district. But we don't agree with what BJP has demanded regarding imposition of President's rule in Bengal. The situation doesn't call for President's rule. Such demands only show the game plan of BJP and RSS," Bose told reporters.
Earlier today, BJP's Bengal president Dilip Ghosh demanded that President's rule be imposed in the state fortwith and that central observers be sent to assess the "worsening law and order" situation in the aftermath of communal clashes in North 24-Parganas district.
Meanwhile, BJP state in charge Kailash Vijayvargia alleged that over 2,000 Muslims attacked Hindu families in the North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal and its offices at several places were set on fire.
Accusing the state government of failing to tackle the situation, BJP State President Dilip Ghosh demanded President rule in the state. Kailash Vijayvargiya, BJP general secretary urged Home Minister Rajnath Singh for his intervention.
The CPI(M) had yesterday demanded that an all-party meeting be convened to chalk a strategy to contain the explosive situation.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has meanwhile, asked the state government to submit a report on the situation. Rajnath Singh was also apprised by the governor about the clashes. The Home Minister has also reportedly asked the Chief Minister and Governor to resolve their difference and control law and order in the state.
Mamta Banerjee, meanwhile, has promised strict action against those who indulged in the violence. She also appealed to the citizens to maintain peace. "I condemn such violence. Despite the person (who made the Facebook post) being arrested, some people are still spreading violence. I appeal to both sides, please don't do politics of riot."
The communal clashes snowballed into a spat between Mamta Banerjee and Keshari Nath Tripathi. Banerjee alleged that she was threatened and "insulted" by the governor. She also accused him of acting in a partisan manner. "He is speaking like a block president of BJP," Banerjee alleged. The TMC supremo also said that she even thought of quitting office over this "humiliation." Criticising the governor for crossing the constitutional line, TMC spokesperson Derek O'Brien compared the Raj Bhawan to 'RSS Shaakha.' He also demanded action against the governor.
Mind you,as the West Bengal government struggles to restore peace in Darjeeling, violent clashes between two communities in North 24 Parganas district has put the state once again on boil. The clashes that broke out on Monday night prompted the Centre to rush 300 paramilitary personnel to the spot to pacify the situation. As a precautionary measure, section 144 was imposed in Basirhat and the state government was asked to submit a detailed report to the Ministry of Home Affairs on the violence. However, the war of words between Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee and Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi has worsened the situation.
Media reports,an objectionable Facebook post allegedly shared by a class X student on Monday is said to have triggered the communal clashes in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district. While the police arrested the accused on the same day, dozens of shops and houses were vandalised by a mob. They also blocked roads and demonstrated in front of Baduria police station.
Protesters also torched police and government vehicles. North 24 Parganas Superintendent of Police Bhaskar Mukherjee was injured when a mob attacked him, according to a report in PTI. Announcements were being made using the public address system asking people to refrain from resorting to violence. Train services were also disrupted in several areas.
The violence which started in Baduria, around 70 kms from Kolkata, later spread to the other districts in the state. Schools and colleges were shut following the riots. Internet services were suspended in Baduria on Wednesday and section 144 was imposed.
