TMC playing dirty vendetta politics to counter BJP surge, says Vijayvargiya.


A day after the arrest of West Bengal BJP leader Rakesh Singh in a drug case, the party’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Wednesday accused the Mamata Banerjee government of playing “dirty vendetta politics”.

“The Mamata Banerjee government is playing dirty vendetta politics. Rakesh Singh is a popular and efficient leader with a trade union background and support of thousands of workers in Kolkata. So, cases are being framed against him,” Vijavargiya .

Vijayvargiya, the BJP in-charge of West Bengal, said there have been “weird charges” against him also. “I do not know what all I have been accused of. I am allegedly a child seller, rapist and various other things. Now every morning I get up preparing myself to face any kind of weird accusation,” the BJP leader said, adding that he has even quipped to the party leadership that while security personnel may protect his life, his dignity too faces a threat.
