Got Report On Bengal Violence, Action After Discussion: Minister

New Delhi: 

Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy has said that he has received a report by Group of Intellectuals and Academicians (GIA), a civil society group, on the post-poll violence in West Bengal and the next step will be taken after discussions with Home Minister Amit Shah.

He said that members of the group have worked as fact-finding committee and talked to victims who faced “atrocities” including “rape and murder by TMC workers”.

He said apart from the group, reports have also been given by various committees.

“They have given the report to the central government. The next step will be taken after discussions with the Home Minister,” he said.

He alleged that Trinamool Congress workers have worked in an undemocratic manner in a democratic system and “resorted to goondaism” and said the government was being run against the constitution and the “police was working as spectators and like TMC workers”.

He said it was the duty of the state government to maintain law and order and provide protection to people but it was not doing so and the central government will take it up in the coming days.

Monika Arora, a Supreme Court lawyer who is part of the group, said that the marginalised section of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes have been the worst sufferers of violence. She said local Trinamool leaders went in groups and “resorted to stone-pelting” as ”khela hobe” song was played.

She said that the National Human Rights Commission, the National Commission for Women, Nation Commission for Scheduled Castes, National Commission for Scheduled Tribes and National Commission for Protection of Child Rights should take cognizance of the cases.

Ms Arora said the commissions should inquire and issue the necessary summons. She said they told the minister that the state police chief and Chief Secretary should work “according to law,” Cases should be registered, arrests made and “rule of law should prevail”.

“The minister has assured us that he will look at this aspect seriously,” she said.
