Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra has never been shy of controversies. Moitra, who was recently criticised for calling the press “two paisa worth”, said the alleged attack on BJP chief JP Nadda’s convoy in West Bengal was “staged”.
Moitra said CRPF, CISF and every central force accompany each “two-bit leader” who visits the state.
“Had heard of college BYOB parties. @BJP having a BYOS (Bring Your Own Security) party everyday in Bengal – CRPF, CISF & every central force imaginable accompanies each two-bit leader who visits. Shame they can’t protect you from staged “attacks”,” she said in a tweet.
She also called the West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar “unelected hatchet-man” of the BJP.
“BJP’s unelected hatchet-man masquerading as Governor to ‘investigate’ alleged attack on BJP President’s convoy!? Seems the BJP not even pretending anymore that Uncle Ji is an unbiased constitutional functionary, but a lackey sent from Delhi to do their bidding,” she said in another tweet.
Moitra’s remarks followed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s comments, who alleged that the attack on BJP president’s convoy was “drama” to divert attention from lack of attendance in his rally.
On Thursday, the convoys of BJP leaders JP Nadda and Kailash Vijayvargiya were allegedly attacked in Bengal as the two leaders were on their way to Diamond Harbour.
According to Bengal BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh, stones were hurled at BJP national president JP Nadda’s convoy on the way to Diamond Harbour in West Bengal.
Kailash Vijayvargiya’s convoy was also attacked on Thursday and stones were hurled at his vehicle. Vijayvargiya has shared a video showing a cracked windshield of the car he is travelling in.
