Kolkata: Blaming West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for her "appeasement policy" behind the recent threat by terror outfit: Islamic State (IS) to enter the state, senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Sunday assumed that IS can enter the state "anytime" and the state's situation would be similar to that of Jammu & Kashmir if the Trinamul Congress supremo would remain in power.

He underlined that the IS poster "Coming Soon" in Bengali which surfaced in a pro-IS telegram channel few days ago was a proof of Ms Banerjee's "appeasement policy." Mr Vijayvargiya also called for her ouster from power. "It is alarming the way the IS has threatened to come to Bengal. All these happened because of appeasement policy practised by Ms Banerjee," the BJP leader reasoned.


He argued, "If Mamataji remains in power, the IS can enter Bengal anytime. The IS threat is looming large over Bengal. Mamataji is responsible for this. The situation in Bengal will become like Jammu and Kashmir if she is not removed from power. So ousting Mamataji from power is very important. Courtsey to her appeasement policy terrorists have made their bases strong in the bodering states. This is evident from the IS poster."

Trinamul secretary general Partha Chatterjee condemned his attack. "One thing is clear that coming from Delhi they are polluting the culture of Bengal. This is an example. There is a great danger of such comments on whether it will keep the country or society united. They are trying to trigger a fight between two states while making derogatory and unparliamentary comments to attack Ms Banerjee," he alleged.

He claimed, "Everyone knows that there is no extremism in the state. The militant movement which they are dreaming of is about to make a comeback because of their provocative approach. The people of Bengal will never accept it. They do not accept it also. I am surprised to find them not caring of our country's foreign policy while giving an example."

Lambasting the BJP the education minister added, "They are also neither showing any honour to the Indian Army nor even caring for the people of the country. Thus they are insulting the peace-loving people of J&K who are also the citizens of India. Vote is so much binding for them that they are not following any rule. They are upto attacking anyone on the lines of Modi Code of Conduct. Now they have crossed all limits."
