“Tragic exodus of people from Bengal continues! Over 450 people, who crossed over fearing ruthless oppression in Bengal, are put up in 2 shelters in Dhubri. They’re are getting relief, & also being tested for #COVID19.” minister Sarma tweeted.

Mamata Banerjee is fueling miseries of people. Shameful!,” Sarma added.
He also said that Bengal’s fate had taken such a painful turn. It was once the land of Rabindranath Tagore, who taught his fellow countrymen about the spirit of peace and brotherhood.

 

Today, a tyrant in @MamataOfficial has taken oath as the Chief Minister with blood of innocents on her hands,” minister Himanta Biswa Sarma further tweeted.

West Bengal was gripped by widespread violence that left many BJP workers dead and wounded in clashes, as well as shops looted, leading the Union Home Ministry to request a credible report from the state government on attacks on opposition workers.
