New Delhi, Feb 6: BJP MP in Rajya Sabha Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Wednesday flayed Trinamool Congress leadership for not allowing saffron party leaders including the likes of Shahnawaz Hussain and Yogi Adityanath to campaign in West Bengal.
"Being scared of BJP leaders coming to West Bengal cannot be an excuse to stop them from coming," Mr Chandrasekhar tweeted. "This is Mamata Banerjee in action -- self-appointed Democracy Saver," the Chief Minister said.
"She has forgotten that our constitution and law permits free movement of citizens in any part of India," he wrote.
The tweet comes amid BJP registering protest with the Election Commission. A party delegation also comprising party's in charge for West Bengal Kailash Vijayvargiya, pointed out on February 4 that hurdles were created for rallies of BJP president Amit Shah, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union Minister Smriti Irani among others in the eastern state.
'In blatant flagrant violation of the orders of the Supreme Court, the state government and its officers, at the instance of the ruling party, are delaying, denying or creating difficulties of various sorts in granting permissions,' according to a three-page letter submitted by the party to the Election Commission.
BJP leader and Union Minister Shahnawaz Hussain alleged he was prevented from visiting Murshidabad.
"Whatever efforts Mamata Banerjee makes and whatever efforts made by her to stop us from preventing us to go to Murshidabad, we did go and with our workers we submitted a memorandum to the civil administration," Mr Hussain tweeted.
Meanwhile, in a tweet former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said he would be traveling to Mamata Banerjee-ruled state in next two days.
"My dear brothers and sisters of West Bengal, I will be in your state in next two days and come let us pledge together to work to materialise the dream of West Bengal," he tweeted.
Mr Chouhan is scheduled to visit Kharagpur on February 6 and Belur Math on February 7, party sources said.
Several BJP leaders have earlier claimed that Ms Banerjee has grown panicky over BJP's massive improvement in the support base in recent past. (UNI)
