BJP responses to Partha Chatterjee’s allegation, blames state govt for intelligence lapses
Malda, 12 October, 2014: 24 hours after the state education minister and Trinamul Congress spokesman Partha Chatterjee blamed the Central government for lax in border security, state BJP president Rahul Sinha today said that the state government should better explain how its intelligence failed to gather information regarding militant-activities in the state for a long time.
Sinha while speaking to the media on Sunday morning said that Congress-CPI-M alliance or Congress-Trinamul alliance was in Centre for ten years. Hence, Trinamul should not seek explanation from BJP regarding infiltration of militants into the country, Mr Sinha added.
He said, “It takes five minutes to cross the Indo-Bangla border. But Trinamul should explain how those militants and terrorists wove their net in the state over the years exposing the ignorance of the state intelligence. Many of those terrorists even got voter-card. Trinamul government should rather explain such huge lapse in state intelligence first than blaming the Centre.”
“CBI probe into Saradha chit-fund scam exposed the Trinamul leaders like Mukul Roy and Madan Mitra. The NIA probe would also unmask the Trinamul-Jamat-e-Islam alliance at the root. That is why the state government was so desperate to prevent NIA investigation to Burdwan blast,” the state BJP chief said.
He claimed that SP, Burdwan was trying to belittle the Burdwan incident and the NIA should see if he had a motive behind suppression of fact. Sinha claimed that Humayun Kabir was removed as SP, Murshidabad as many unpleasant truths would have come in public.
State BJP president claimed, “There are thousands of Khariji or unauthorized madrassahs in the state many of which are used for anti-national activities. Even the UPA government too warned against mushrooming of such madrassahs. Paying no heed to the warning the chief minister rather declared to recognize 10,000 Kharji madrassahs. Before doing anysuch detrimental thing, the CM should explain if there are 10,000 such madrassahs at all the state.”
Referring to recent blast at Narendrapur village in English Bazaar police station Sinha said, “Here also police tried to suppress the fact that there was Bangladesh connection behind the blast. NIA may probe into it also in connection to Burdwan blast.”
BJP state president said, “Only five per cent Muslim has got involved in terrorist activities and thus they are defaming the larger Muslim population. It is a ploy of Trinamul to tarnish the image of Muslim community. It is now the responsibility of the Muslim community to expose the terrorists and thus wash their hands off such bad names.”
Sinha hinted that BJP would drive with larger force in the forthcoming municipal and assembly election to oust Trinamul from the state.
