"Sampradayik dange karne walo ko Gujarat ke Hinduo ne jo jawab dia, usi tarah se Bengal ke Hinduo ko jawab dene ki zarurat hai (Hindus in Gujarat should respond to people involved in communal violence as Hindus in Gujarat did)", Raja Singh was quoted saying by the agency.
The CPI-M today said that the situation prevailing in West Bengal does not call for imposition of President's rule, but demanded immediate restoration of peace in the troubled areas of North 24-Parganas district. The Trinamool Congress leader went on to assert that the BJP-led government was spreading morphed images from Bhojpuri movies to incite violence. In response, the mob had vandalised shops and homes, and set fire to vehicles, triggering retaliatory attacks.
Banerjee also said her government would take action against "two national-level television channels" for showing "fake" videos and claiming them to be related to the clashes. "We will also probe the media's involvement in spreading rumours", Banerjee told reporters at state Secretariat Nabanna here. I respect Facebook but not "Fakebook". "We have made a decision to order a judicial probe into the Baduria and Basirhat riots". The BJP has been destroying the country.
Talking to mediapersons after the meeting, State BJP president DilipGhosh said, " We have requested the Governor to talk to the CentralGovernment and send the recommendation for imposition of President'srule in the state. "They did not control Kashmir and instead are injecting insurgency". Who is in charge of border security, the Centre or the state? "Some of the infiltrators came from the other side of the border and left after indulging in communal violence", she alleged.
Commenting on the attempts by political parties to visit the riot-hit areas, the chief minister said, "Where is the need to disturb the people there?" They are telecasting distorted, fabricated videos, which have no link to Bengal. "The law will take its own course", she said, while addressing a press conference here.
