Hinting that the party workers would go all out to enforce the strike convened on September 26 in protest of alleged killing of two students during a clash between police and students of Daribhit high school, state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh warned that the state government and ruling Trinamool Congress would be responsible if more lives were lost when the government tried to thwart the bandh.
Ghosh, who faced the media at district BJP headquarter in Malda today, said, “We are against strike as a policy. But at such a crucial time when innocent students are being killed mercilessly, a strike is the only option left.”
With an eye to garner support from the people state BJP president said, “The strike convened on September 26 is not a political propgramme. It is actually a protest by the mass against the state government. All BJP workers would be on streets as the voice of people on the day of strike.”
Leaving enough hints that BJP would go to any extent to make the strike successful Ghosh said, “We are in favour of peace always. But if the state government and Trinamool Congress try to dissolve the strike forcibly, we are ready to face any situation. We would not retreat at any cost. If any untoward incident occurs, the state government and Trinamool leadership would be responsible.”
BJP state president also denied that his party did not instigate the students to prevent police from taking the newly recruited teachers to school on the day of occurrence.
When asked if his party was trying to obtain dividend from the heart-rending incident BJP state president sounded excited and said that it was actually a ploy to divert the attention from the failure of the state government.
He reasserted the demand for a CBI probe echoing the family members of deceased students – Rajesh Sarkar and Tapas Barman.
“People of the state have no trust in state police after the role they played during the rural polls. Hence, the demand of CBI probe is justified. We are with the people’s demand and we also anticipate that the administration would never reveal the truth. If the state government has courage, it should welcome the CBI probe,” state BJP head said.
