Infiltrators from Bangladesh and Rohingyas from Myanmar are involved in post-poll violence in Bengal, alleged the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Suvendu Adhikari during a long meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Wednesday.
“I told Modi Ji about the atrocities BJP workers are facing in the state. As many as 25 women have been raped. Bangladeshis and Rohingyas are involved in these crimes. Thousands are homeless. At Ausgram (in East Burdwan district) 26 families are hiding in a jungle,” Ghosh, who is the leader of the opposition in the Bengal assembly, told the media in Delhi.
He was scheduled to meet Union home minister Amit Shah for the second consecutive day.
The Narendra Modi-led party has been alleging for a long time that Rohingya refugees were given shelter by Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress but the ruling party always denied such claims.
Adhikari joined the BJP in December last year and defeated Mamata Banerjee in the recent assembly polls at Nandigram, the seat he held in East Midnapore district.
