The BJP in West Bengal has alleged that TMC goons destroyed its party paraphernalia ahead of Amit Shah's roadshow in Kolkata. The party has alleged that the TMC has removed the posters and torn the BJP flags. It has said that it will go to the Election Commission over the matter.
As seen in the video, there are torn posters and flags all over the venue.
"BJP leaders and workers sat on a dharna over the issue. BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya said, "Mamata's goons came here and destroyed everything in 15 minutes. This is anarchy, there is no democracy. The TMC is carrying out hooliganism here. The Bengal Election Commission is creating an atmosphere of lawlessness and acting without the permission of the poll body in the Centre. The police and the Election Commission is working on the instruction of Mamata Banerjee. Mamata is afraid of seeing the number of people who have come here for Shah's event," he said.
Amit Shah had been denied permission to land his chopper and hold a meeting at Baruipur under Jadavpur constituency during the day forcing him to call off his programme. He challenged Mamata Banerjee to arrest him for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'. He also said that he will be in Kolkata on Tuesday.
"TMC can stop me from attending rallies but can't stop the victory march of BJP in Bengal .... The Mamata Banerjee government is visibly perplexed. She wants to stop me from attending rallies. Can you (Banerjee) prevent your defeat this way?," he claimed at a rally at Canning under Joynagar Lok Sabha constituency and dared Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to arrest him for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'.
Throwing a challenge at the fiesty TMC supremo, who is among the most strident critics of BJP, Shah said "Mamata didi gets angry if someone chants 'Jai Shri Ram'. I am chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' here today, if you (Mamata) have the guts, arrest me. I will be in Kolkata tomorrow."
