Burdwan blasts – Nasty politics at play again

Midnightbreakfast had in its previous posts here and here highlighted the dangers of unabated influx of migrants from across the border from Bangladesh. Campaigner Modi had raised the issue back during his campaigning days.

Some days back there was a blast in Burdwan a WB district killing suspected terrorists.

Now, check out the ruling party in WB, TMC, reaction “It is unfortunate that BJP wishes to politicize the issue. BJP seems to have developed a new-found love for India. We do not need any lessons on patriotism from BJP,” TMC spokesperson He then says, “in the past they (BJP) have insitigated communal riots to divide and rule India. This will never be accepted by the people.”

TMC then changed its stance coming around to accept the hand of militant Al Qaeda linked organisation from its earlier stand that it was a fight between criminals.

Really dont understand the connection to what has happened and what O’Brien is saying. What does he mean when he says, ‘politicise the issue’? An act of terrorism is political. Why be ‘politically correct’ while reacting to acts of terrorism? What does he mean when he said, they have instigated communal riots to divide and rule India? Terrorists dont have a religion. If a terrorist happens to belong to some community, so be it. Such a stance had cost the Congress dear in last elections as its perception nose dived and it started appearing as a party that is not serious about tackling acts of terrorism.

WB seems to be a tinderbox. More on it will follow..
