Biplab Kumar Deb Criticizes Mamata Banerjee Over Post-Poll Violence Handling in Bengal

Northeast Desk, 17th June: Former Tripura Chief Minister and BJP leader Biplab Kumar Deb has strongly criticized West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for allegedly failing to uphold her commitment to protect the people of the state amidst escalating post-poll violence. On June 17, Deb, accompanied by a four-member BJP fact-finding team including senior party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad, is set to meet with victims of the violence in Cooch Behar.

In discussions with the press, the former Tripura CM highlighted extensive violence that has unfolded across Bengal post-elections, particularly in seven districts, contradicting Banerjee’s assurances of state security. “She had sworn to safeguard the state, yet seven districts have witnessed significant violence,” Deb stated.

He further lamented that approximately 400 BJP workers remain stranded and unable to return home, even on the occasion of Eid, due to the prevailing conditions. Deb underscored the urgency of the situation, emphasizing that he and fellow officials plan to visit the BJP office in Cooch Behar to engage directly with victims of the post-poll violence. Following their visit, a comprehensive report will be submitted to BJP leader JP Nadda.

The BJP fact-finding mission aims to assess firsthand the situation on the ground and extend support to those affected by the violence, marking a critical effort to address the aftermath of the recent elections in West Bengal.
