Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that BJP MLAs do not know etiquette and decency and this has been evident from the uproar during the speech of Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar in the Assembly recently.
Dhankhar read out only a few lines of his 18-page address and laid the written speech on the Table of the House on July 2 in the state assembly amid the noisy ruckus of BJP members. The BJP MLAs were raising slogans over the post-poll violence in the state.
In her speech in the House, Trinamool Congress President and Chief Minister Banerjee said that BJP MLAs in the state should not have created obstacles in delivering the address of the Governor elected by the BJP leadership at the Centre.
Expressing thanks on the Governor’s address, he said, “I have seen many BJP leaders from Rajnath Singh to Sushma Swaraj. However, this BJP is different. They (BJP members) do not know culture, etiquette, decency and civilisation.
BJP MLAs are constantly raising the issue of post-poll violence in the state. Even today BJP MLAs boycotted the house. On the issue of violence, Mamta said, “Those people who are speaking on violence after the elections, I want to tell them that I took charge on the 5th, after that how many incidents have happened. I myself have seen that where I contested elections, people were threatened and told not to vote. The matter is under consideration, I will not take the name of the place. BSF and CRPF thrashed people. This matter is in court, I don’t want to say anything.
