Statement by Trinamool regarding BJP’s vandalism at Vidyasagar College
𝘋𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘬 𝘖’𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯, 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘧 𝘕𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘚𝘱𝘰𝘬𝘦𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯:
This is the saddest press conference we are doing. The sadness of those of us who have been in those colleges is tinged with shock and anger at what the BJP President with his hired goons did.
The students were on a democratic protest with black placards. Goons of Amit Shah from outside Bengal orchestrated the violence. The video establishes Amit Shah is a liar.
The BJP is trying to justify this act. They are giving excuses like ‘the gate was locked’. The videos establish the truth. Amit Shah is a con-master.
We are not surprised. Seven days back he said Rabindranath Tagore was born in Birbhum! Two days ago he called Bengal ‘Kangal Bangla’ and yesterday this.
We are trying to confirm but it’s widely reported in Bengali media that while the desecration of – Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s statue was being done, the slogans were “Vidyasagar finish, where is the josh”
We will take videos we have to the Election Commission. We are authenticating them on record.
They are outraged about the arrest of outsiders? Tajinder Bagga… Who is this guy? Didn’t he slap somebody in Delhi? So you take people from outside…
Every boy or girl who studied in Bengal knows Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, they learnt their alphabet from his Barnaparichay.
We have two more pictures to show, this is to do with the elections, we have nothing personally against the central forces, we have two startling pictures to expose what we have been saying that the Central forces are in cahoots with the BJP in Bengal.
The BJP candidates are entering polling booths, accompanied by central forces. They are coercing people to vote for the BJP.
