West Bengal tense in wake of post-poll violence: PM instructs Governor, Mamata Calls for Action

As the Trinamool Congress won the 2021 Assembly Election with the largest ever verdict in the history of West Bengal, a familiar script started to play out.

From across the states, reports poured in of party versus party violence. Many reports suggested that Trinamool Congress was responsible for the violence, however, there were some cases where the Trinamool Congress also alleged that its workers had been attacked and killed by the members of the Bhartiya Janta Party.

Just when Mamata Banerjee was applauded for single-handedly defeating the combined might of BJP and the Central agencies an opportunity has arisen for people to condemn her for leading an army of goons.

Even before victorious Mamata Banerjee can take her oath as Chief Minister for the third time, the demand is being made to bring West Bengal under President’s rule.

However if reports are to be believed then the violence is not one-sided at all, both BJP and The TMC have jumped into the field and are equally responsible for the violence.

The Central government has also mounted pressure on the TMC government over the incidents with Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling up governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and the Union Ministry seeking a report from its state counterpart.

Chief Minister-elect Mamata Banerjee also held an emergency meeting with top state officials seeking an immediate end to the post-poll Violence that has claimed more than 15 lives in two days.

The BJP has already given a call for a nationwide dharna today to protest attacks on its workers and supporters.

Above these unfortunate incidents, fake news and old video of Violence are also being circulated to agitate the minds of people.

Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee is set to take oath for the third time as the Chief Minister of Bengal today and will have a greater role in stopping this hate violence.
