Lok Sabha MP and BJYM National President Tejasvi Surya’s Tweet
नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि
नैनं दहति पावकः।⁰न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो
न शोषयति मारुतः॥
Weapons cannot shred the soul, nor can fire burn it.⁰Water cannot wet it,
nor can the wind dry it.

State BJP president Sukanta Majumdar alleged lathi-charge by the police. “Mamata Banerjee has killed democracy in West Bengal. We told the police to arrest or detain us but not resort to lathi-charge. But they did not. Male cops attacked our women workers. As per my info, four workers need hospitalisation, one is already hospitalised”, said Sukanta Majumdar.
He added, “Mamata Banerjee is a fascist and a photocopy of Hitler. The state police’s only job is to stop the BJP, they do not have any other work. Mamata Banerjee, being a woman said that the woman who was raped was pregnant and had an affair.”
Speaking to ANI about the rally, Surya said, “Land of Vivekananda and Rabindranath Tagore, land that had guided the country in education in the context of the freedom movement is now sinking as far as the education system is concerned. Yuva Morcha is protesting against the politicisation and corruption in our education system”.
According to Surya, job recruitment in Bengal takes place based on nepotism and political connection. “It is our endeavour that we will go to Vikas Bhavan, gherao there and demand our rights. This is TMC’s police and they won’t work as per the Constitution. We will do our work and the police will do their work,” he added.
