West Bengal: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday formed a four-member committee to look into the alleged political violence in West Bengal. The party has accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of remaining a mute spectator.

The four-member committee includes Biplab Kumar Deb, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Brij Lal and Kavita Patidar, all BJP MPs, with Deb as its convener.

"Mamata Banerjee remains a mute spectator, while criminals of her party, attack and intimidate opposition workers and voters with impunity. Even the Calcutta High Court has taken note of these excesses and extended deployment of CAPF till June 21 and has listed the matter for hearing on June 18," the saffron party said in a statement.

The BJP said the Lok Sabha elections were held across the country and no instance of political violence was reported from anywhere except West Bengal.

"It continues to be in the vice grip of post-poll violence, the kind we saw post-2021 assembly elections," the BJP alleged.
