(File photograph)Hinting on the imposition of President’s Rule in West Bengal, Union Minister Babul Supriyo on Friday stated there have been provisions within the Constitution to “take care of” violence within the state. Speaking to a regional information channel, the BJP chief claimed greater than 130 of the saffron get together’s staff within the state had been killed in violence perpetrated by the Trinamool Congress (TMC), the ruling get together.
“The TMC must mend its ways and stop its atrocities on our workers. Only a few months are left for Assembly polls. If the TMC workers think that they can intimidate voters and continue with political violence, then there are provisions in the Constitution to take care of such things,” Supriyo informed the information channel.
The minister claimed that folks had made up their thoughts to vote for the BJP in subsequent yr’s elections.
His get together colleague and state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh stated atrocities being confronted by get together staff had been forcing some BJP leaders to talk about the imposition of President’s Rule.
“This is nothing new as violence is continuing unabated in the state and especially on our workers. Our active party workers are being killed, false cases are being slapped for protesting such deaths and now police action is being initiated to stifle our voice. The administration and police are trying to intimidate us by force. This is the reason why some of our leaders are speaking in favour of President’s Rule. However, we want to win the election in a democratic way and not by using Article 356,” Ghosh stated.
The TMC dared the Opposition get together to impose President’s Rule. “If they have the guts then let them impose it in the state. I challenge them to impose President’s Rule here,” stated state minister Bratya Basu.
TMC MP Saugata Roy stated, “If Babul Supriyo is talking about the imposition of Article 356 in Bengal, then he should first talk about the imposition of President’s Rule in Uttar Pradesh, where rule of law has ceasedto exist.”
Responding to Supriyo’s allegations, TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee, stated, “He knows nothing about the law. He is a singer and let him sing. I dare them to impose President’s Rule in West Bengal.”
CPI(M) MLA Sujan Chakraborty stated each the TMC and the BJP had been serving to one another forward of the Assembly elections by making such feedback.
“We all know that the TMC is going to lose the 2021 Assembly Polls in the state and such statements ahead of the elections will give more oxygen to the TMC. Once again it is proved that the BJP and the TMC are helpingeach other.”
State Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury stated, “The Election Commission conducts polls. It is an independent institution which will look after all the aspects before holding the polls. These are some provocative statements being made by BJP leaders to energise their workers. If the situation is indeed grim, the Home Ministry should have imposed President’s Rule by now.”
During his go to to the state earlier this month, Union Home Minister Amit Shah stated, “President’s Rule cannot be discussed in a public place like this, but I feel that it will not be required as BJP is anyway going to form the government with a very big margin after April next year.”
On September 28, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar warned the state administration that he can be compelled to have a look at Article 154 of the Constitution, which mandates that the chief energy of the state shall be vested within the Governor.
“I have to act if the Constitution is not protected. It is unfortunate that the office of the Governor has been ignored. Under such circumstances, I will be forced to look at Article 154 of the Constitution,” he stated.
