Assembly elections are going to be held in West Bengal this year. There is a stampede in the ruling Trinamool Congress ahead of the assembly elections. Shubhendu Adhikari, a close confidant of Mamta Banerjee, has joined the BJP, besides Mamta Banerjee’s brother Karthik Banerjee has also expressed his displeasure. Now in charge of Bengal BJP Kailash Vijayvargiya has said that more than 40 MLAs of TMC are in touch with us.
There is a lot of debate on TV channels about Bengal politics. Today, Amish Devgan’s show on News18 India also had a debate on Bengal. In the debate, TMC leader Riju Dutta said that BJP is doing Hindu-Muslim in Bengal.
Anchor Amish Devgan said, ‘You said very beautiful thing that there should not be a Hindu-Muslim and I agree with you 100%. But do you think the story started from Hindu-Muslim 2014? Do you think the story has started since Narendra Modi won in 2014? I will take you a little in the pages of history, so give me another 40 seconds.
Amish Devgan further said, ‘Who did Hindu Muslims in 1947, when the country was partitioned, Kashmiri Pandits were massacred, who did Hinduism in 1990-91. Godhra was done, who did Hinduism? There were riots in Bhagalpur, who did Hinduism. There were riots in Muzaffarnagar, who did Hindu-Muslim. These are all events before 2014, I can count you 15 more incidents, which led to the Hindu-Muslims within this country. ‘
Shouting in the debate, Amish Devgan said, ‘This country is divided in the name of Hindu Muslims, why do we forget this fact, this fact. Is Hindu Muslim happening after Narendra Modi’s arrival, after BJP’s arrival? No, Hindus have been becoming Muslims, when the late Rajiv Gandhi overturned the decision of Shahbano, after that the Ram temple was opened. Who made Hindus Muslims, Muslim appearances on one side and playing with Hindus on the other. ‘
