West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has termed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a miltant organisation on Sunday.
The comment came in response to BJP’s West Bengal chief Dilip Ghosh saying that BJP wouldn’t be lenient towards the members of the ruling party who attack the workers of the saffron party.
“We are not a militant organisation like the BJP. They are creating fights not only among Christians, Muslims but also among Hindus,” stated Banerjee.
On June 2, the body of Dulal Kumar, a BJP worker had been found hanging from a pole in Balarampur area of Puralia district. On May 30, the body of Trilochan Mahato, a BJP activist had been found hanging from a tree after the Panchayat election results were announced which was followed by the deaths of two TMC workers.
Tensions between the two parties have been escalating in West Bengal for quite some time now.
