New Delhi: Today we want to tell you about the blood character of Bengal. By the way, West Bengal (West BengalResults of the Vidhan Sabha elections held in ()Assembly Election Result) Had arrived yesterday but today there Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Has also come to vote.
BJP offices set fire
The result is such that South 24 Parganas (South 24 Parganas), The houses of those who had voted for the BJP, and the BJP workers who worked for the party in the elections, have been demolished. Those who do so are activists of the Trinamool Congress (TMC). Arambagh (Arambag) Also saw the results of political violence, there the BJP office was vandalized and later set on fire. Some similar results in Nandigram (Nandigram), Where after the defeat of Mamta Banerjee, Shuvendu Adhikari’s car was attacked and BJP workers were attacked in many areas. Even their houses were demolished.
Blood shed instead of roses in TMC celebration
In Sonarpur, a BJP worker was beaten to death, and all this in West Bengal, Mamta Banerjee (Mamata Banerjee) Happened after the victory. That is, TMC workers celebrated in this way and blood was replaced by Gulal. If we tell you about the political violence so far, TMC has made an edge. In the last 24 hours, TMC workers have been accused of killing 5 BJP workers. After the election, the voters and workers who voted for the BJP were now punished.
Is democracy no longer in danger?
Expressing concern over this, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar (Jagdeep Dhankar) Said ‘I am troubled and worried by the many reports of violence, arson and killings from different parts of the state. Party offices, houses and shops are being attacked and the situation is worrisome. Today, he also took information on this from West Bengal DGP. However, the important thing here is that Mamata Banerjee, who accused herself of assault during the election, is silent on this violence like every time. Because this violence is happening against the BJP workers and the voters who voted for it in the elections. Today, there is a question as to whether democracy is no longer in danger?
West Bengal did not change even after 32 years
There was a lot of violence in West Bengal not only after the results but also during the Vidhan Sabha elections and many political activists were murdered even before the elections. This has been happening in West Bengal for many decades. When there was a Left government in the state for 34 years, there was still political violence. When former Chief Minister Jyoti Basu told in the Legislative Assembly that at least 86 political activists were killed in Bengal during 1988 to 1989, the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had to say that ‘Leftists live in Bengal Has become very dangerous’. But see the irony that even after 32 years, the situation in West Bengal has not changed.
Violence erupted when 1 rupee fare hike
However, to turn the pages of history, political violence had started in Bengal since independence. In the years 1947 and 1948, there was a tremendous bloody confrontation between the peasants and the landlords. Then there was the Congress on one side and the left parties on the other side in this violence. This violent movement is called Tebhaga Movement. The second political violence started in 1953, which was named ‘a paisa movement’. At that time, the tram fare in Kolkata was increased by 1 rupee, after which violence started in protest against it. In this movement too, there was Congress on one side and left parties on the other side. At that time, the politics of both parties made Kolkata a battleground.
Mamta and left parties alike today
After this, the Naxalite movement started in 1967. Then many supporters of the Left accepted the ideology of Chinese leader Maotse Tung, which said that power comes out of the barrel of a gun. This movement established a culture of violence in Bengal politics, and then in 1990 there was a fatal attack on Mamata Banerjee. This attack on Mamta is one of the most gruesome incidents of political violence. After this attack, Mamta became the face of the fight against the left, and today she is doing what the left parties once did.
In the Singur and Nandigram agitations that ran from 2006 to 2008, many violent confrontations took place between the TMC and the Left. Due to this political confrontation, Bengal became the battleground of political violence and more than 100 political activists were killed, and the same continues to this day. The only difference is that when the Left parties ruled in West Bengal, first Congress workers and then TMC workers were killed. And now when Mamta Banerjee is in government, BJP workers are killed. These activists are now asking for help on social media.
Bengal’s character red like blood
The character of West Bengal politics is red like blood and the current circumstances have also changed a lot. Now the struggle is not against the left parties, but the struggle is against the BJP, and this is because of the increasing influence of BJP in Bengal. Even though the BJP could not form the government in West Bengal, but it has reached 77 seats from 3 seats. Whereas the Congress and the Left parties did not get a single seat in the Legislative Assembly. This is also historical because it has happened for the first time since independence, when the Congress and the Left did not get a single seat in West Bengal.
Why are those who threaten democracy silent today?
Nearly 23 years before today, in 1998, former West Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu gave an interview to Zee News, in which he gave the reason for the weakness of the left parties. But in today’s political situation, the left parties have disappeared from West Bengal. Those who say democracy is in danger, raise the issue of intolerance and talk of freedom of expression, they are silent on the current situation in West Bengal.
