Ever since Mamata Banerjee was re-elected to power in West Bengal, alleged TMC goons have unleashed violence on BJP leaders, especially on those belonging to lower castes. From burning their homes to murder and threats of rape, the goons have made life difficult for any person even remotely associated with BJP.
As per a video that has gone viral on social media, a Muslim TMC leader told a Dalit BJP leader to send his wife for few days to him for being allowed to return to his village.
“Send your wife Pinki to me for few days, then only we will allow you back in the village,” were the words of a local TMC leader, Muzaffar, to the husband of a Hindu Dalit BJP worker in Minakhan assembly constituency area, district North 24 Parganas, West Bengal.
Words of Muzaffar (TMC Leader of Minakha):- Send Ur Wife Pinki to me for few days, then only we will allow you back in Village.

In the Muslim dominated villages of West Bengal, a massive Hindu exodus is taking place because the alleged TMC goons have made life a living hell for them since the day Mamata Banerjee was re-elected to power.
Devdutta Maji, a BJP candidate who is also the president of social organisation Singha Bahini, recorded a video of the people who were forced to become refugees due to violence from the goons. Pinki Baj (BJP women’s wing treasurer in the area), her husband Sadhan Baj, tell their story to Maji in the above video.
“Muslims attacked Hindu families in the village after the election results on 2 May,” said Pinki. “We all fled with just the clothes on our back. Later when I called local (TMC) committee leader Muzaffar Baig, he said ‘send your wife first, then later you can come’,” told her husband Sadhan.
“We request Modi ji to protect us Hindus from the atrocities heaped on us by Muslims,” Pinki pleaded.
The post-poll violence in West Bengal has birthed a humanitarian crisis in the state as hundreds of BJP workers, fearing for their lives, have migrated to the neighbouring state of Assam. Previously, taking to Twitter, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma revealed that almost 300-400 Bengal BJP workers had crossed over to Dhubri in Assam to escape the brutality under the TMC regime.
According to Sarma, the BJP workers from Bengal are being provided with food and shelter in the meantime. The BJP leader also condemned CM Mamata Banerjee, telling her to “stop this ugly dance of democracy”.
“In a sad development 300-400 @BJP4Bengal karyakartas and family members have crossed over to Dhubri in Assam after confronted with brazen persecution & violence. We’re giving shelter & food. @MamataOfficial Didi must stop this ugly dance of demonocracy! Bengal deserves better,” tweeted Sarma.

Although Himanta has extended help to the refugees, the Union government is yet to take any action. It is not like the central machinery had not anticipated such an outcome after the results. The TMC supremo in public had threatened the non-TMC voters during the election trail. As reported previously by TFI, according to a Zee News Hindi report, during a rally in Nandigram, where Mamata lost the assembly polls — she shot out a warning to the BJP voters saying she will come after them when the centrally deployed forces return to their bases after the election.
The Modi government has already extended protection to elected BJP MLAs of West Bengal, but the question is when it will take care of the on-ground karyakartas.
