At the state headquarters of the BJP in Kolkata, Bengal unit President Dilip Ghosh and national President JP Nadda administered an oath to the 77 BJP MLAs who had won in the West Bengal Assembly and senior party leaders against “politics of hate”.

“Those who were supposed to protect others are the ones responsible for this violence. They can take oath, everyone has the right to do that in a democracy. But we also take an oath that we’ll dismantle the political violence in Bengal,” Nadda said.
“We pledge that we shall carry out our responsibility by happily accepting the mandate and play the important role of Opposition. We fought in Bengal to end political violence, appeasement and tyranny. We won’t step back from dispensing our duties,” he added.
A protest in Maharashtra was organised under former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. A similar protest was also organised in Rajasthan. (AGENCIES)
