Expressing serious concern over violence and arson against people who participated in BJP President Amit Shah’s rally in West Bengal’s East Midnapore district on Tuesday, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh called up state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and asked her to take strict action against the guilty.

“The Home Minister asked West Bengal CM that those who indulged in violence should be brought to book,”the Home Minister’s official account tweeted.

Coming down heavily on the Banerjee government on the refugee crisis, Shah said if elected to power, the BJP will ensure citizenship to all refugees and drive away all the infiltrators from Bengal.
