Langeh condemns killing of BJP workers in WB, demands probe to nail culprits


RAMBAN: Former MLA Ramban, Neelam Langeh strongly condemned the killing of Bharatiya Janata Party workers after the declaration of Assembly election results in West Bengal.
In a handout issued today, Langeh said while the BJP workers and their supporters are facing the ire of Mamata Banerjee, it is a matter of great concern and shame that even a Union Minister was targeted by some anti-national elements in West Bengal. He demanded an impartial probe into the violence and killings and nailing the culprits.
The former BJP MLA accused Mamata Banerjee of providing patronage to Goonda elements in the state and letting loose a reign of terror across West Bengal. He said that keeping in view the magnitude of killings, violence and arson it is crystal clear that the police in West Bengal facilitated the violence and mayhem by acting as mute spectators in such a serious situation. He said that the gravity of situation there in West Bengal can be judged from the very fact that it has been described by some eye witnesses as being exactly like that of 1947 partition violence.
Expressing apprehensions of further deterioration leading to loss of life and property, Langeh called for immediate imposition of President’s Rule there. Moreover, demanding a probe into the matter, he said that it should be the first priority of Mamata Banerjee to identify those behind this violence and killings and book them for murder and arson.
Terming this mayhem, arson and looting in Bengal as purely ‘political violence and killings’ he said that there is least chance of the culprits being nailed by the TMC Government in West Bengal which vindicates the demand for President’s Rule in that territory and get the violence and killings probed by the CBI. Meanwhile the former BJP MLA also paid rich tributes to those killed in the violence alleged to be perpetrated by Trinamool Congress activists and workers under the full patronage of Mumta Banerjee.
