'People are afraid to talk': Mahua Moitra's royal rival calls out law and order

New Delhi:

Amrita Roy, the former Bengal Krishnagar royal who will take on Trinamool Congress’ Mahua Moitra, today told WhatsNew2Day that given the law and order situation in the state, she felt she had a role to play.

Citing Sandeshkhali’s recent allegations of land grabbing and sexual harassment against Trinammol Congress strongman Sheikh Shahjahan, she told WhatsNew2Day in an exclusive interview that such events take place every other day.

“Some things come out. Other things are kept secret… So I feel like I have a big role to play… this can’t continue,” she told WhatsNew2Day.

“People are afraid to come out or talk…in case they get a bad name. They are being deprived of their fundamental rights,” she added.

However, the idea to participate was from the BJP, which had approached her, she told WhatsNew2Day. She said that although she had been apolitical all her life, she had accepted it “because it was a good platform”.

The BJP, which hopes to win at least 25 of the state’s 42 seats, is focusing on women power this time.

With Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress being supported by the women of the state, the BJP is hoping that its women candidates will help it expand its footprint in the state.

Ms Roy is facing Mahua Moitra, the sitting Trinamool MP, until she was disqualified by a parliamentary ethics committee over the alleged question-answering controversy earlier this year.

In a major show of support to Ms Moitra, the party once again fielded her from Krishnanagar, expressing confidence that she would be re-elected.

Asked about senior BJP leader Dilip Ghosh’s comments on Mamata Banerjee – about which he has received a notice from the Election Commission – Ms Roy said: “In politics, many things can be misinterpreted. You have to be a little careful,” she says. said.

“Didi goes to Goa and says, ‘I am the daughter of Goa’… goes to Tripura and says, ‘Am the daughter of Tripura’. Decide who your father is. It is not good to be just anyone’s daughter.” , Dilip Ghosh had said – words rejected even by his own party.
