New Delhi, Jan 5: A delegation of the West Bengal BJP unit on Thursday met Union Home Minister Rajth Singh here and submitted a memorandum alleging that the Mamata Banerjee government has failed to protect the party’s interests in the state. In the memorandum, Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) General Secretary and the party’s state affairs in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya said there is complete breakdown of law and order in the state. He accused the ruling Trimool Congress of attacking BJP offices in various parts of the state. “There have been arson and attacks by the ruling party goons on January 3, 2017, in different parts of the state. The principal target of the ire is the BJP.” “The violence has the blessings of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and therefore police are silent spectators,” Vijayvargiya said. He alleged that despite repeated phone calls to police in the wake of attack at the BJP office in Kolkata, no help came from them. “Many of our workers were injured in the brutal aggression in our state office. Several of the ruling party leaders were seen in the mayhem, encouraging their goons,” he said. (IANS)
