Speaking about their action on the roads, BJYM Howrah District President OP Singh said, “In Mamata Banerjee’s rule we’ve seen Grand Trunk Road & other main roads are blocked on Fridays for namaz. Patients die, people can’t go to the office on time. As long as it continues, we’ll recite Hanuman Chalisa on Tuesdays on all main roads near Hanuman temples.”
Meanwhile, attacking the BJP-led NDA government, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Monday tweeted, “Today is the anniversary of the #Emergency declared in 1975. For the last five years, the country went through a ‘Super Emergency’. We must learn our lessons from history and fight to safeguard the democratic institutions in the country.”
