Crucial Hearing in Supreme Court on Bengal Violence issue today:
Top Court will hear the appeal by @MamataOfficial Government against a Calcutta HC order which handed over serious crimes such as rape, crimes against women which occurred during #postpollviolence to CBI.
According to the West Bengal Government before Supreme Court, the CBI will be biased as it runs at behest of Centre & that the NHRC Committee report is "misleading".
Read West Bengal Government's take:…
Hearing Begins.
A bench led by Justice Saran in hearing the #BengalViolence case.

Kapil Sibal is for the West Bengal Government.

The NHRC report on #Bengalviolence

“Violence was retributive. It was in retaliation to those who "dared" to vote or support the major opposition party. Victims were helpless and hopeless due to the torture and trauma.”
NHRC says “Poor and common people have lost faith in Police. Almost all victims informed the Inquiry Committee that Police either did not respond to their phone calls or came and stood as mere spectators while goons went on a rampage from one place to another.” #BengalViolence
NHRC says “victims were implicated in false cases by the Police, or Police lodged counter cases against the victims by the accused…Police arrested victim in the counter case but dragged its feet on taking action on the victim's case, Police did nothing on complaint of victims.”

মালদা ও পশ্চিমবঙ্গের অন্যান্য স্থানের ধর্ষিতা মেয়েরা কি বাংলার নিজের মেয়ে নয়?
বাংলা কি শুধু একজন খে** পিসিমা/দিদিমা মেয়েকেই চায়?
ঐ একজন তথাকথিত বাংলার নিজের মেয়ের জন্যে যে শত শত বাংলার অন্য মেয়ে/মা রা অত্যাচারীতা হচ্ছে সেটা কি শুধুই ছোট্ট ঘটনা?

Along all the #BengalViolence and #SecondCovidWave , people have missed realizing the biggest fight/war that is awaiting them in future (or rather already happening).

Analyze the #BengalPolls carefully and see what's happening:
Congress is intentionally taking itself out of game in state polls.
Polarized Muslim votes and Commie votes are consolidating to the regional party. This will happen reverse way in Loksabha polls; and imagine there are 3 years to solidify the strategy.
Not only the parties, but vote-banks are able to understand this strategy somehow in an organic manner.

There are four broad votebanks :
1. pro-BJP Hindus, 2. Muslims & Christians, 3. Regional Caste votebanks, 4. anti-BJP Secular Hindus

Exposing the #BengalViolence whitewash mission of the "Fact-Check" gang

Throughout April she tweeted in criticism of Modi govt and BJP (Pic 1 & 2). One day ago she shared an old photo (Pic 3) claiming to it be from recent #BengalViolence. And the so called fact-checkers used it for their "Fake News vs Truth" comparison which is going viral.

As someone who is patriotic and cares deeply about India, I think Modiji is the best possible person right now to lead the country. Having said that, I also believe that this govt isn't doing all that great and here are some suggestions from my end 1/n
A) This Govt's communication sucks. I mean really. They all chimpus jumping around from studio to studio delivering homilies. Stop all that. Take a leaf out of the US' way of doing things. Have a press officer and hold daily press briefings. Even more important in a pandemic. 2/n
B) Do a mea culpa about the COVID handling. Accept that the govt bungled. There is enough blame to go around to state govts and the citizens, but as a mature govt., accept that you dropped the ball. That will actually make people trust you more. 3/n

Since some have asked me to explain the rationale behind invocation of Article 356 in the context of #bengalviolence, pls watch this video where I explain d position. Obviously d Supreme Court cannot impose emergency under Article 356 since that is d prerogative of d President.
Which is why what has been sought is a declaration that the constitutional machinery has broken down in the State of West Bengal within the meaning of Article 356, so that the President can take cognizance of it. Just clarifying. Not getting into a debate here on the subject.
