A shocking video of a Trinamool Rajya Sabha MP, Subhasish Chakraborty, directing his party colleagues not to allow Hindus to vote in future elections has surfaced.
According to a report by Bengali portal ei bangla 24x7, Chakraborty, who is also the Trinamool chief of South 24 Parganas, issued this illegal directive to his party colleague while analysing the results of the recent Lok Sabha polls.
The Trinamool won all the four Lok Sabha seats in South 24 Parganas--Diamond Harbour, Mathurapur, Joynagar, Diamond Harbour and Jadavpur, by very good margins.
The CPI(M), was well-entrenched in the district till 2011 and a close challenger to the Trinamool till now, has been relegated by the BJP to third position in all the four constituencies.
Given the BJP’s rising graph all over Bengal, its emergence as a close rival has also sent alarm bells ringing in the South 24 Parganas’ Trinamool leadership.
A few Trinamool functionaries, mostly Muslims, from the Bhangar Assembly segment of Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat had gone to meet Chakraborty, a senior criminal lawyer. While going through the detailed election results, Chakraborty discovered that many votes were cast in favour of the BJP in three booths in village.
In the video, Chakraborty can be seen telling his party colleagues to keep a watch on the village. “The Hindus there cannot be allowed to vote any more,” he is seen telling them.
It may be recalled that thousands of Hindus were forced to flee from some Muslim-majority areas of Diamond Harbour just before the Lok Sabha polls. They fled after announcements were reportedly made from mosques telling Hindus that they would be attacked if they did not leave their homes.
They were told they would be allowed to return only after the Lok Sabha polls get over. It was later reported that polls were rigged in those places and all the Hindu voters were impersonated and their votes cast in favour of the Trinamool.
