The Vishva Hindu Parishad Tuesday asked the Union government to intervene in West Bengal and check the political violence unleashed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.
Milind Parande, Central Secretary-General of the Vishva Hindu Parishad, said, “...the Central Government should take the unresponsive attitude of the State Government seriously and take fitting action.”
Trinamool Congress’ cadre has been looting, torching and vandalising BJP offices and the party workers’ houses.
More than 15 BJP workers and their family members have been killed in the past three days.
The VHP, in a statement, said, “There are continual reports from almost every part of the state that the anti-social goons and jihadi elements of the TMC are victimizing the Hindus through public violence, arson and looting and destroying their houses, temples, settlements, outraging the dignity of their sisters-mothers-daughters and torching their business establishments.”
It added, “In such circumstances, the Hindu society also has the full right of self-defence, which it will use!”
It said, “Remaining hushed on the horrific politico-violent atrocities being inflicted on its own citizens by the current regime and political leadership is nothing short of encouraging and cheering violence.”
