The situation in West Bengal is fast spiralling out of control, following the arrests of TMC MPs in the Rose Valley scam. In a shocking development, TMC workers brutally thrashed an aged BJP woman leader Krishna Bhattacharya inside her house on Tuesday night.
Here is an ANI video with eyewitness account of the attack on the woman BJP leader’s house, and the extensive damage to property –
Do note the elderly lady at 0.27s in the above video who describes the brutal assault on Krishna Bhattacharya, “I heard a loud thud and then when I entered the house, I saw three goons punching and kicking her badly. They kept on punching and thrashing her. At last, they questioned how come she joined the party (BJP) and left thereby hurling a crude bomb.“

TMC workers also tried to barge into BJP MP Babul Supriyo’s house in Kolkata where his parents are staying – for a change, West Bengal police was able to control this situation. Here is what MP Babul Supriyo tweeted –

The attacks on BJP started with an assault on the party headquarters in Kolkata on Tuesday night where 17 BJP workers were injured. Kolkata Police headquarters is only 5 minutes away from the BJP office but it did not send reinforcement for almost 30 minutes, BJP leaders alleged. On Wednesday, a second BJP office in Hooghly was set on fire –

In New Delhi, several TMC MPs took out a protest march to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence, but were taken into police custody before they could reach 7 Lok Kalyan Marg
Such brazen attacks on an opposition party in a state by ruling party workers would shake anyone who claims to believe in democracy. But these attacks have been downplayed in MSM – for eg. yesterday’s edition of the most widely read English daily in Bharat, “Times of India” did not carry any report at all about the attack on Krishna Bhattacharya. Even the violent protest outside Babul Supriyo’s house was downplayed in an article on Page 9
Media’s goal is to pass this off as just the usual political bickering. Imagine the uproar if a Congress woman leader had been assaulted like this by BJP workers? All the liberal-secular award wapsi gang would have brought the entire nation to a standstill.
But why is it that the so-called secular, liberal, progressive parties of Bharat like TMC, AAP, CPM, Congress resort to such goondaism at the drop of a hat the moment their revered leaders are made accountable to law? In 2014 too, AAP had launched a vicious attack on the BJP national headquarter in New Delhi when Arvind Kejriwal was detained by Gujarat police for a few hours during a road show for flouting the poll code.
RSS or BJP never resort to such naked display of violence against political opponents – even in a state like Gujarat, when Narendra Modi and Amit Shah were grilled for over a decade for 2002 riots and Sohrabuddin/Ishrat Jehan encounter, not a single BJP worker attacked the local Congress office – despite it being abundantly clear that Sonia and her UPA Government were trying everything under the sun to trap the two BJP leaders.
The double standards in Bharat today are so obvious that it is staggering that a significant section of our population (including the so-called educated urban sophisticates) is still unaware, and believes the tripe that media feeds them.
Every right thinking Bharatiya needs to see parties like TMC for what they are – totalitarian, corrupt, nepotistic syndicates devoid of any morals or vision. And the less said about the media snakes who protect such parties, the better.
