The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday asked West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to act responsibly after the latter presaged right-wing groups to not play with fire. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said that if Banerjee cannot behave responsibly then the Centre must mull to dismiss her government in Bengal. “She should put out the information and if there is an attempt to disturb the peace then she should register an FIR. Why is she doing all that? Then we will take out to court. She is already attacking the Chief justice of Kolkata High Court. Mamata Banerjee is a constitutional authority and must act responsibly otherwise the Centre should think of dismissing the government,” Swamy told ANI. Treading similar path, BJP leader Nalin Kohli said that Banerjee cannot camouflage the brittle situation of Bengal by targeting the VHP or the RSS.

“By constantly trying to blame the BJP, RSS, VHP or other organizations, Mamata Banerjee cannot shift the blame of the real situation in West Bengal. There clearly the politics of appeasement in happening. When the Maha Dashmi cannot be take place on the designated day because of Moharram, it shows that the administration is either failed or it is not able to bring about friendly relations between the two communities and both cannot celebrate it together,” Kohli said. Banerjee on Saturday warned the BJP and its affiliate organisations such as RSS, Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad over playing dirty politics during Durga Puja, asking them “not to play with fire”.

“The Muslim Population of West Bengal is 30 percent. Some people are trying to play dirty politics over Durga Puja. So, if the people from BJP, RSS and VHP believe they can ruin our peace, I’d ask them to not play with fire,” she said. In addition to it, Banerjee reiterated her decision to halt Durga idol immersion on the day of Muharram. Mamata said, “One thing should be clear- there shouldn’t be any immersion during Muharram. I even tweeted about it after the meeting with the Puja committees.”

Her comments came on the backdrop of VHP’s decision to go ahead with its plan of a “shastra pujan” at private and religious institutions during Bijoya Dashami across the state. Last month, the West Bengal government issued an order, which said that the immersion of Durga idols would not be allowed after 6 pm on September 30 and on October 1, on the account of Muharram. The time was later extended to 10 pm. This triggered a controversy among the members of BJP, who accused Banerjee of doing vote bank politics, sidelining the high court’s order.

    We need more people like Subramaniam Swamy in India. es like Mamta Banerjea, dumbos like Karunanidhi, are trying to convert India into Pakistan. What right Mamnta has got to tell Hindus not to observe their festivals on the days they fall. She is a wanting to please Muslims. Modi should take strict action against WB govt.

      i agree with some of centre's views on west bengal. for the sake of minority appea t they are always upto doing anything..when CPM was they did similar also..its an interplay of all the existences intended i guess not constantly trying to provide for any minority particularly muslim populace. so be it congress next at centre..same views i shall hold on to..enough has gone from our hands..5 of the major world's religions are sufficient and satisfcry with 6th being on rotation of different useful ideologies related to religional practices if required. following control required for wbengal - (i) fund no of madrasas..every railway stop has nearby madrasa in western block w.bengal ..such comfortable facilities given to dem (ii) immediate control on mosque building .. no sud be controlled not every here nd dere to teach wat?? at night times till 11 o clock (purulia town) with loud speakers (iii) facilities given to dem has not united in so many years..so care reqd from now.

        Mr. Away, responsibility is on everyone and unfortunately for you, that word is not in your dictionary. You have been one of the most irresponsible persons in modern India. And age has no effect on your understanding. You have been a loose cannon as described by your own party. If you do care for responsible behaviour, control the gaurakshaks, the trolls, the VHP and bajrang dal activists first. Look in the mirror, Mr. Swamy. The image will turn you blind.
