Trinamool govt encouraging communalism: Buddhadeb

"This government is mildly encouraging communalism. In the recent Jangipur Lok Sabha byelection, received 10 per cent vote, while an Islamic party bagged 7 per cent. This is a dangerous trend. This has never happened in West Bengal," Bhattacharya told a convention to commemorate 'Babri Day'.

Stating that his party did not believe in mixing religion with politics, the former chief minister alleged that some actions of the Trinamool government was inciting communal feelings among the people.

He said that during the rule, his government tried to give reservation to both backward Muslims and SC/STs.

"But now it has all stopped. What is happening now? Muslims are not getting anything," Bhattacharya said.
