On Wednesday, BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari accused Bangladeshi and Rohingyas from Myanmar to be involved in post-poll violence in Bengal.
He informed PM Modi about the atrocities faced by BJP workers in the state and brought to the notice of PM that 25 women have been raped in the state. During his meeting, he pointed out that Bangladeshis and Rohingyas were involved in the crimes in post-poll violence in Bengal. Adhikari stated that thousands have been homeless while in East Burdwan district, there are 26 families who are hiding in a jungle.
For a long time, the BJP leaders have been alleging that Rohingya refugees were given shelter by the TMC government but the Bengal state had always denied such claims.
After Suvendu met Shah and BJP president JP Nadda, he said that he personally feels that the situation in Bengal is much worse than what is required. He added that Article 356 must be enforced in Bengal but BJP has not taken a formal stand on this issue.
As according to Article 356 of the Constitution of India, the Union government can take direct control of the state machinery, in case the state government will be unable to function in accordance with the Constitutional provisions.
