'TMC, Jamaat leaders terrorise BJP cadre in Bengal border areas’

A section of Trinamool Congress leaders patronised Islamic fundamentalist group activists and even shared the dais with one who infiltrated from Bangladesh, a central BJP team that visited Sandeshkhali in West Bengal on May 31 has said in a report to party president and home minister Rajnath Singh on Friday.

“It may be recalled that last August it was reported that a certain section among TMC leaders were also harbouring activists and criminals of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Bangladesh, who had crossed over to West Bengal to create communal tension and fan fundamentalist ideas.

Some of these elements have openly canvassed for the TMC during the last elections and one of them, Abdul Barik Biswas, was seen on a dais with Trinamool MLA Debasree Roy,” the report says.

Refusing to comment on the charges, Trinamool secretary general Partha Chatterjee said, “No matter what they say, the BJP remains a party whose allegations are so baseless that they warrant no reply from us.”

A six-member BJP team led by party vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi went to the area near the Bangladesh border on May 31 following an attack by Trinamool supporters on a crowd of BJP supporters celebrating Narendra Modi’s swearing-in on May 27.

The four-page report says the attacks were not just a fight between two political parties but a larger conspiracy to spread terror in the border region through “a nexus of Islamic groups, smuggling mafia, terror elements and TMC goons”.
