BJP forms five-member committee to investigate violence in Tripura

The ruling Bharatiya Janata (BJP) party has set up a five-member committee to investigate the violent incident in Tripura, where a mosque and shops were burnt down in the Panisagar sub-district on Tuesday.

According to state police, violence erupted after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), an offshoot of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological source of the BJP, protested against the destruction of Hindu temples in Bangladesh. According to police, several members of the VHP were involved in the arson.
The BJP has denied the involvement of its members in the violence.
Vinod Sonkar, deputy and chairman of BJP Tripura, said the party had set up a committee made up of members of his minority cell.

“The committee has been asked to visit the (violence-hit) areas and submit its report in the next two or three days. Since our political opponents accuse us of being biased, we asked the members of the minority cell to probe the incident.”

Sonkar, who will be in Tripura this weekend, accused the Trinamool Congress (TMC) of organizing the violence. He added that the TMC, which is trying to invade the state, wants to polarize the state along religious lines ahead of the parliamentary elections scheduled for 2023.

“The TMC has no base in Tripura; no party workers are willing to join them so they are trying to create an atmosphere of religious tension and polarisation in the state.”

Sonkar has denied speculation that some BJP executives will join the TMC in the state. “There is no friction in the party unit. Even those who had some issues with the party or the government have not quit the party.”

“They (TMC) are rattled by the fact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has solved long-pending problems of the tribal communities in Tripura. They have no support from the tribes or the Bengali Hindus. So, they are stoking all kinds of controversies.”

HT has requested a comment from the TMC and the copy will be updated as soon as he responds
