Mau | Prime Minister Narendra Modi today responding the violence in Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata and vandalism of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar statue said that the party is committed to the vision of 19-century reformer and will built a grand statue at the same spot.
Addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Mau, PM Modi said,” We saw hooliganism by TMC workers again during Bhai Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata, they vandalized Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s statue. We are committed to Vidyasagar’s vision and will install his grand statue at the same spot.”
” Some months back during my rally in West Medinipur, TMC goons indulged in hooliganism. After this in Thakurnagar the situation was such that I had to cut short my speech and was forced to leave the stage,” he added.
Attacking Mamata Banerjee on her statement that people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar were responsible for the violence in Kolkata, PM Modi said,” I had thought the way Mamata didi is targeting UP-Bihar Purvanchal people, calling them outsiders for her politics, Behen Mayawati will surely slam Mamata didi, but this did not happen.”
Taking action against the violence which erupted in the roadshow of BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday in Kolkata, the Election commission on Wednesday ordered campaigning in nine West Bengal constituencies to end at 10 PM on Thursday, a day before its scheduled deadline.
In a hurriedly-convened press conference, Deputy Election Commissioner Chandra Bhushan Kumar said it was for the first time that such an action has been taken using constitutional powers of the poll panel. The Election Commission (EC) also ordered the removal of Principal Secretary (Home) Atri Bhattacharya and Additional Director General, CID, Rajeev Kumar from their postings in West Bengal.
