Mamata’s Bengal ‘unsafe for women’: Nadda

New Delhi, July 1 (UNI) Slamming the Trinamool Congress-led government in West Bengal over a “horrific” video of a man assaulting a woman in Uttar Dinajpur district, Bharatiya Janata Party President JP Nadda said on Monday that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s state is “unsafe for women”.

In a social media post on X, the BJP president said, “A horrific video has come to light from West Bengal, reminding of the brutalities that exist only in theocracies. To make matters worse, the TMC cadre and MLAs are justifying the act. Be it Sandeshkhali, Uttar Dinajpur or many other places, Didi’s West Bengal is unsafe for women”.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Rajeev Chandrasekhar criticised the “appeasement politics” of the INDIA bloc.

“Appeasement politics of INDI alliance are causing them to cross every line and every law that guarantees rights to citizens all over the country, including West Bengal. Lie about protecting the constitution but do exactly the opposite?” the BJP leader posted on X.

BJP IT Cell head Amit Malviya also claimed that the accused in the Uttar Dinajpur incident was closely associated with Chopra MLA Hamidul Rahaman and accused the Chief Minister of being a “curse for women”.

The West Bengal Police have registered a case and arrested the accused, identified as Tajmul alias JCB, who was allegedly a local TMC leader in Chopra, Uttar Dinajpur district.

Earlier, Union Minister and West Bengal BJP President Sukanta Majumdar formed a seven-member team to investigate the alleged assault on a BJP Minority Morcha leader in Cooch Behar.
