The Centre has sought a report from West Bengal government on law and order situation in the state following an attack on BJP President JP Nadda's convoy by Trinamool Congress goons
. The Centre sought the report from the state government after BJP state unit president Dilip Ghosh wrote to Home Minister Amit Shah alleging serious security lapses during the BJP president's visit.
The convoys of BJP leaders Nadda, Mukul Roy, Dilip Ghosh and Kailash Vijayvargiya were attacked with stones, bricks and glass bottles yesterday. A number of cars, including that of Shri Vijayvargiya and Dilip Ghosh, were damaged in the attack.
Home Minister Amit Shah has condemned the attack saying that the Centre is taking this incident very seriously. In a series of tweets, Shri Amit Shah said, the state government will have to answer to the peace-loving people of West Bengal for this sponsored violence. He alleged that West Bengal has entered into an era of anarchy and darkness under TMC rule. Shri Shah said the way political violence has been institutionalised in the state during TMC rule is sad and worrisome for people who believe in democratic values.
Shri Nadda said that the change has already arrived in West Bengal and it is just a matter of time that the lotus will bloom in this Sonar Bangla.
