JP Nadda accuses TMC of vandalising BJP's campaign van in Purulia
BJP President JP Nadda and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday (March 16) accused Trinamool Congress of vandalising its Ambedkar yatra in Kakdwip, West Bengal.
Few miscreants vandalised the rath that was supposed to be used in the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Samman Yatra by the BJP on Tuesday.
The images of the vandalized rath that was parked in Purulia were shared on social media by BJP leader Amit Malviya, who blamed the TMC for the incident.
Amit Malviya tweeted, “BJP’s rath for the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Samman Yatra, parked in Purulia, vandalised. Driver suffered injuries. BJP national president J P Nadda would be flagging off the yatra anytime now from Kotulpur. TMC won’t be able to do much to stop it. What is Pishi so scared of?”
After the incident, JP Nadda said, “The BJP had decided it will take out two Ambedkar yatras, one from Kakdwip and another from Kotulpur. The yatra that was scheduled to start from Kakdwip was vandalised by TMC goons, they tried to stop it. BJP condemns the act.”
“BJP knows that TMC realises they are facing defeat in the upcoming polls and they are doing this in a state of panic. I condemn this,” he added.
The eight-phased West Bengal Assembly polls are scheduled to begin from March 27. The results of the election will be declared on May 2.
