‘Anti-Romeo squads’ in Bengal if BJP wins elections: Yogi Adityanath
On Thursday, Senior BJP leader Yogi Adityanath said that anti-Romeo squads will be formed in Bengal if the party is voted to power in the state.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Senior BJP leader Yogi Adityanath addressed three poll rallies in Hooghly and Howrah districts of West Bengal on Thursday. He stated that the state is not a safe place for women under the current TMC government and if BJP is voted to power it will focus on women and education.
The UP CM said, “Why is Bengal not a safe place for women? … Education and transport will be made free for girls in Bengal.”
He further added, “Anti-Romeo squads will be formed in Bengal to deal with those who loiter around girls schools.” Anti-Romeo squads were launched in Uttar Pradesh soon after Adityanath assumed power in 2017. It was done to ensure safety of women in the state.
Yogi slammed Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal for failing to bring in any positive change in the past ten years that it has been in power. He asked what happened to TMC’s slogan of ‘maa-maati-manush’ and why the state is not a safe place for women.
The senior BJP leader asserted that CM of the Bengal, Mamata Banerjee has no compassion for the youth, farmers and development. “But she has compassion for the TMC goons,” he said.
While talking about the Citizenship Amendment Act, Yogi said that TMC fanned violence against it in West Bengal. The saffron party leader also pointed out cow slaughter in the state and said, “Here in Bengal, TMC is all for appeasement for the sake of vote bank. Mamata Banerjee supports cow slaughter. In UP cow slaughter is not allowed. If anybody is found to be involved in it, the person goes to jail.”
Yogi has expressed confidence that BJP will come to power in Bengal and once it does it will send TMC goons to jail.
The results will be declared on 2nd May.
