Demanding president Rule should be immediately imposed in West Bengal in wake of widespread violence that allegedly left several BJP workers dead and injured in clashes.

Expressing solidarity with the BJP karayakartas and their families, the Meghalaya unit of Bharatiya Janata Party organised a protest demonstration at its party office in Shillong.

The protest was led by state BJP President Ernest Mawrie against the post poll violence and atrocities allegedly committed by All India Trinamool Congress in West Bengal.

While claiming almost 2.28 Crore people voted for the BJP in the recently concluded assembly elections in West Bengal, BJP media cell in its statement said,  “…as soon as results were announced and it became clear that the TMC would be forming the next government there, TMC gundas with the support and protection of state machinery began an onslaught against BJP karyakartas.”

“..Party offices are being burnt, and karayakartas and supporters are being fatally beaten up even as we write this report,” they alleged.

Expressing solidarity with the BJP karayakartas and their families , the state BJP said, “The BJP Meghalaya Pradesh through their protest have expressed solidarity with the BJP family of West Bengal.”

“ We also strongly demand that President’s Rule should be immediately imposed in that state so as to bring the law and order under control and protect the people from the brutal dictatorship of the present dispensation. We have also expressed our shock at the complete absence of other political parties in raising their voice against the atrocities in West Bengal,” the statement said.

The party, however, condemn the action (or inaction) of the TMC government and the silence of other political parties in the strongest words.

“President’s Rule is the only way of saving Indians in West Bengal,” the statement added.
