Suvendu seeks Guv intervention for restoring peace at Sandeshkhali, serves 24-hr ultimatum

Kolkata, Feb 10 (UNI) Opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari on Saturday sought West Bengal Governor C V Ananda Bose’s intervention into the volatile situation at Sandeshkhali and served a 24-hour ultimatum, saying if the internet services was not restored and Section 144 of CrPC not withdrawn, the BJP karyakartas would march there on Monday.

The Nandigram MLA, who led a BJP MLAs demonstration march from the state assembly to Raj Bhavan, submitted a memorandum to the governor’s officials there as Bose was on vacation in Kerala and is likely to return by this evening.

He also alleged that a BJP delegation was halted by the state police at Rampur near Sandeshkhali in South 24 Parganas where many BJP karyakartas were allegedly manhandled by the TMC goons and the police did not give any protection.

Suvendu alleged even in clamping the prohibitory order from Friday night at Sandeshkhali, the TMC goons have been torturing the villagers, who protested against absconding Sahjahan Sheikh and his two closed aides.

“In the memorandum to the Governor we have given him 24 hours time for restoring peace and internet services or else we will march to Sandeshkhali on Monday,” Adhikari told reporters outside the Raj Bhavan.

He alleged the people of scheduled caste and scheduled tribes were being tortured at Sandeshkhali where he would violate the Section 144 if their safety was not ensured within 24 hours.
