Lashing out at the state government, Suvendu Adhikari said, “The post-poll violence in West Bengal has left behind the Calcutta killings, and the Noakhali (in Bangladesh now) riots of 1946, and the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The more the inaction of government machinery during the post-poll violence is criticized, the less it is.”

At an event in Kolkata, Suvendu Adhikari offered floral tribute to BJP workers who were allegedly killed during the post-poll violence in West Bengal.

“I bow to all of the BJP workers who lost their lives in political violence. The ones who offer prayers to Kali and Shiv have faced atrocities after 2 May. Our MPs are protesting in Delhi. Today is the day to save Bengal,” he said.

The Nandigram MLA claimed that TMC supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said the Election Commission was in charge when the incidents of violence took place. But at least 30 have died after she took the oath, he claimed.

“Booth level and people of one community have been attacked. The ones who Mamata claim to be ‘milk giving cows’ have attacked multiple villages,” he said, adding that the post-poll violence has outdone the 1946 riots, when communal clashes broke out in Calcutta (now Kolkata) on the Direct Action Day.

Mr Adhikari claimed that the observations made by the NHRC in its report on post-poll violence have “shaken the world”.

“We expect the judiciary to take action after taking into consideration the NHRC report, which has just exposed the tip of the iceberg. Such report will put anyone with a sane mind to shame.

The Nandigram MLA further said the TMC was under the impression that “such attacks, abetted by the state police, would decimate the BJP in the state, but they are mistaken”.

The BJP has built safe homes for its 25,000 homeless party workers, supporters and their families, he stated.

The saffron camp legislator, in yet another dig at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said, “She had gone all the way to Nandigram from Bhawanipore to contest elections. After being rejected by people there, she is now desperate to get elected to the Assembly, notwithstanding the COVID-9 situation.

“Setting a new precedent, a non-MLA CM is running the state. We will surely dislodge this government one day. From three, our tally has increased to 77 in the Assembly.”
