The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has summoned Bengal DGP and chief secretary over Thursday's attack on BJP chief JP Nadda's convoy. Also, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar has sent his report to the Union Home Ministry on the attack and said the security was inadequate for the convoy.
Union home minister Amit Shah condemned the attack and said that the Trinamool Congress (TMC)-ruled government will be answerable to the peace-loving people of West Bengal.
“The attack on BJP president JP Nadda is condemnable. No matter how much we condemn, it will not be enough. The Centre is taking this very seriously. The West Bengal government will be answerable to the peace-loving people of the state for this,” Shah’s tweet roughly translated from Hindi read.
The Centre on Thursday had sent a communication to Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and sought a detailed report on the law and order situation in the state and the steps taken by the government to ensure peace.
Dhankar further said that chief minister Mamata Banerjee has to follow the Constitution adding that the law and order situation has been continuously worsening for long.
Meanwhile, TMC MP Mahua Moitra hit out at the BJP by saying that Thursday’s attack was staged by the BJP and that is why their security could not foil the attack.
