Moments after one of the news agencies reported that puja pandal and idol of goddess Saraswati were allegedly set ablaze in Dasnagar’s Baltikuri in West Bengal, BJP has questioned the silence of state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Rahul Gandhi over the issue. In a strongly worded tweet, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Now where are the “Fancydress Hindus”? ..”Janeaudhari” Rahul Ji & “Bhagwat Gita distributing” Mamta Banerjee ji ..No comments on intolerance as yet??
Unidentified miscreants set Saraswati puja pandal and idols ablaze at Baltikuri, Dasnagar in West Bengal. The members of a local club ‘Green Stars’ alleged that some local miscreants used to run a hooch den there illegally. The members protested and filed a complaint in the Dasnagar police station recently. As a result of this, the miscreants allegedly took revenge on them. Few hooch bottles were recovered from the spot. The Dasnagar police started inquiry but no arrests have been made so far. The situation was tense but under control after the incident.
Mamata Banerjee recently held a 'Brahmin Sammelan' in West Bengal's Birbhum district. Thousands of priests were felicitated at the programme and each of them was given a copy of Bhagavad Gita, a shawl and pictures of Sri Ramakrishna and Ma Sarada.
