New Delhi: ( 07/12/2018) The Calcutta HC had on Thursday refused permission to the BJP for holding the Rath Yatra in Coochbehar, after the West Bengal government refused to allow the event, saying it may cause communal tension.
BJP President Amit Shah hitting back at Mamata Banerjee on permission for Rath Yatra in West Bengal said, A democratic process has been suppressed in West Bengal, with the misuse of power.
Addressing the Press the Conference at BJP Headquarter, Amit Shah said,
“After the Panchayat elections, Mamata Banerjee is scared of BJP & this is why she has stopped the Rath yatra. In every sector starting from cattle to coal, mafias are working & TMC ministers are supporting them.”
He further said, “A democratic process has been suppressed in West Bengal, with the misuse of power. The CM is following this trend. This is non-democratic. Mamata Banerjeeis scared that if BJP takes out all these three rallies in the state of West Bengal and assemble in Kolkata then the foundation of a complete change will be laid down. So she attempted to stop all these yatras.”
BJP President Amit Shah when asked, ‘Rahul Gandhi says PM has not held a single press conference in all these years’ said, “Sambit will answer this question on behalf of BJP”
