Kolkata, Sep 8: Two bombs were hurled at the residence of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP of Barrackpore Arjun Singh at his residence in North 24 Parganas’s Bhatpara. Police rushed to the spot and additional security has been deployed to ensure the safety of the BJP MP.

Panic triggered when some miscreants on motorbike came and hurled bombs on the entry gate of Singh. According to the police two bombs were hurled — one on the gate of the MP’s residence and the other at the Central force barrack on the opposite side of the residence.

“Though no one was injured, the gate and portion of the barrack were damaged. We are looking into the CCTV footage to identify the criminals. The security of the MPA has also been tightened,” a senior police officer of the Barrackpore police commissionerate said.

The Barrackpore MP said, “Yesterday. I got the responsibility of Bhabanipur constituency and today only bombs were hurled at my residence. This is only to scare us, but they should know that it is difficult to put me under pressure”.

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar condemned the attack on the BJP MP’s house and demanded prompt action from the West Bengal police. He also said that wanton violence in the state shows no sign of abating.

Taking to Twitter, Dhankar said “Wanton violence in WB shows no sign of abating. Bomb explosions this morning outside the residence of Member Parliament @ArjunSinghWB is worrisome on law and order. Expect prompt action @WBPolice. As regards his security the issue has earlier been flagged @MamataOfficial.”

Trinamool Congress state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said, “They (BJP) might have some internal problem and it can be a result of that. How do we know about all these things? We are not interested even”.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
