Nadda vows to 'save' people of Bengal from chain of political violence

BJP president J P Nadda on Wednesday took a symbolic oath here to protect democracy and ''save the people of West Bengal from the cycle of political violence''.

Nadda, who had attended a dharna near a Gandhi statue in the central part of the city on Tuesday, said his party will ensure that the entire country gets to know about the widespread violence unleashed in the state following the declaration of assembly poll results.

''I will be visiting districts such as North 24 Parganas to be on the side of our members who were at the receiving end of this brutality... We want to tell the entire country about this,'' Nadda said at a programme organised by the saffron camp at its Hastings office here.

The BJP has claimed that at least six of its workers and supporters, including a woman, were killed in attacks allegedly perpetrated by the TMC following its victory in the assembly elections.

''We will continue to serve the help the people of Bengal and help them realise their dreams. We will strive to break this chain of political violence,'' he said at the programme, which was attended by state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh among others. PTI SUS RMS RMS
