The chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb today strongly castigated the violence unleashed on BJP workers and supporters by the Trinamool cadres in West Bengal in the aftermath of the assembly elections there.
"Already six BJP workers have been killed by Trinamool goons besides largescale arsoning , displacement of people and attacks on women after the Trinamool victory; it is bizarre that a victorious party has launched these violent attacks; Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee should immediately stop this violence which is a blot on democracy; five states had gone to polls but only in West Bengal such grisly violence is taking place ; nothing has happened in any other state" said Biplab. He said that from tomorrow a two-day silent protest will be organized across the country in memory of the slain six BJP workers in West Bengal and to bring the matter to national notice. Each every worker who will protest completely within COVID norms will hold candles up to pray for the posthumous happiness of the spirit of the slain workers. 

Summing up the BJP' success in the five assembly polls Biplab said that in Assam BJP had retained power by securing 75 seats in alliance with NDA partners. "In Assam we have retained power and our 60 seats won in 2016, in Kerala we have increased our vote share from 10.53% in 2016 to 11.30% this time ; in Puducheri we have won four seats for the first time and the NDA is going to form government there; in Tamil Nadu also we have opened our account by winning four seats in alliance with AIADMK and we will sit in assembly as a strong opposition and in West Bengal we have increased our seats from only 3 in 2016 to 77 this time and our vote share has gone up from 10.16% in 2016 to 38.13% this time ; we had hopes of far better performance but the people have given us responsibility as main opposition" said Biplab. He however said that having lost the Nandigram seat to Shubhendu Adhikary , Mamata Banerjee should morally opt out of the race for chief ministership. 

Condemning the post-poll violence in West Bengal Biplab said that the chief minister has made merely a lip service against the ongoing violence and should play a proactive role. "In four of the five states there is no violence and even in 2018 only sporadic small incidents had taken place , no largescale violence; we will make this an issue and apprise the people of the country of what is happening in West Bengal" said Biplab. He however asserted in the context of Tripura that BJP’s alliance with IPFT will continue. In the press meet he was accompanied by the deputy chief minister Jishnu Debbarma, party president Dr Manik Saha and Two MPs , Rebati Tripura and Pratima Bhowmik. He also ruled out CPI (M) as a political force.
