Kolkata: Opposition BJP legislators staged a walkout from the West Bengal Assembly after Question Hour on Wednesday demanding a statement from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on the law and order situation of the state.
At the end of Question Hour, a BJP member stood up from his seat, followed by others as well, demanding a statement on post-poll violence and the recent unrest in the state following a controversial statement by a saffron party member.
The BJP members demanded why the chief minister is silent on the law and order situation of the state.
Later, Leader of the Opposition Suvendu Adhikari told reporters outside the House that the chief minister’s latest visit to Delhi will be a big flop as in 2019 when she tried to unite all the Opposition leaders before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
He claimed the NDA will come with a huge majority which will be repeated in 2024.
Adhikari said that a recent circular raised the House Rent Allowance (HRA) of WBCS executive cadre and not for others as they directly serve the state government officials.
Referring to status of BJP members going back to Trinamool party fold, the LoP said that the Speaker can neither swallow the issue nor usurp it and is caught in a tricky situation.
