Buddhadeb Hits Out at Amit Shah

Snubbing BJP as a communal party being headed by a man accused to spiralling riots in Uttar Pradesh, CPI-M politburo member and former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today said the country has been facing a dangerous situation where a "communal force supported by corporates is heading the country".

"It is a dangerous situation where communal forces supported by corporates are now leading the country. What is happening in UP? Banking on a communal polarisation scripted there, BJP got the maximum number of seats in UP. The person who had been instrumental in doing the religious polarisation is now the president of BJP," Bhattacharjee said without naming Amit Shah.

Stating that BJP's road to power was based on communal politics such as Godhra riots, Advani's Rathayatra and Babri Mosque demolition, he said that a communal fascism in the guise of corporates have set in the country.

Bhattacharjee lashed out at the Trinamool Congress-led state government over the worsening of law and order here.

"During our regime crimes did happen but not at this scale. The goons now think that it is their government so they are running the show. The state has moved backwards at least by a decade in terms of investment. We have to fight this anarchic government," he said.
