Sukhendu Sekhar Roy condemns BJP Youth leader’s bounty on Mamata Banerjee’s head

FULL TRANSCRIPT

One activist of the ruling party at the Centre in West Bengal has publicly described the Hon. Chief Minister of West Bengal as “demon” and has also announced a reward for those who will bring the head of the Hon. Chief Minister, of Rs 11 lakh.

I urge upon all the honourable Members of this House to request the government to condemn this incident because it appears from this fact that the ruling party at the Centre is trying to unleash a reign of terror in West Bengal in the name of religion and other things.

This should be stopped, otherwise the entire country will be engulfed in such tendencies, which would a danger for our parliamentary democracy. I urge upon the government to condemn this incident.

A constitutionally elected Chief Minister has been called a “demon” and an award has been announced for her head. How can it be done by a ruling party activist? This should be condemned and I urge upon the ruling party to condemn the incident.

This is a case of political patronage.
