Slamming the Trinamool Congress for terrorizing voters in West Bengal, BJP Vice President for West Bengal, Chandra Kumar Bose on Sunday has claimed that 'TMC goons belonging to the 'jihadi brigade' are terrorising voters in areas of the state going door-to-door' while interacting with the media.
"There is no difference between a terrorist organization and the Trinamool Congress. Both cause terror among the people. How dare Trinamool goons belonging to the 'jihadi brigade' terrorize our voters? They have gone from house to house in Kasba, Port area, Kidirpur, Alipur area threatening voters that if you support BJP you are likely to get killed," he said.
Bose, who is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's grandnephew had earlier too claimed that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been running a "terror brigade" after BJP chief Amit Shah's roadshow was marred by violence in Kolkata on Tuesday.
He said, "Today politically Mamata Banerjee has lost the battle, she is resorting to violence. She has built up a goon brigade, a terror brigade and today there is no difference between a terror organisation and Trinamool."
Bose furthermore accentuated on how the party ranks top when it comes to "political violence"
He said, "This the politics of violence. Bengal has always seen violence, but the Trinamool has mastered the art of criminalisation of politics more than the Left. There was limited violence during the Left regime, but now when it comes to political violence, West Bengal is at the top of the charts."
