The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led state is on the verge of becoming another Kashmir, reports said.
BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said that people are not safe in Bengal anymore.
“I want to say that Bengal is on the way to become Kashmir. Lot of people are getting killed, people are not safe. The government is not taking anything to control the situation. Bangladeshi’s are entering India and living in India peacefully,” said Lekhi.
BJP leader Satyapal Singh said that Banerjee is encouraging communal forces. He said that the west Bengal police have lost its identity.
“The situation in West Bengal has deteriorated because of the wrong policies used by Mamata Banerjee. Law and order situation has become worse, police has lost its identity. If the situation does not get stable soon, it would not be good for the country. We were not allowed visit Basirhat, this explains that Mamata Banerjee wants to hide the ground reality and facts. She is encouraging the communal forces,” Singh told a news gathering agency.
BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi, Om Mathur and Satyapal Singh yesterday were denied entry into riot-hit Basihrat by the West Bengal government.
The BJP has been hitting out at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ever since the violence broke out at Basirhat, is also planning to submit a memorandum to Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi demanding imposition of President’s Rule in the state.

The boy was later detained by police, but the violence hasn’t abated.
A fresh tension was reported in Basirhat area days after too forcing the police to lob teargas shells and resort to baton charge even as the state government decided to ban some organisations for allegedly instigating people.
