On his half, Swamy retweeted tweets that praised him for “raising the issue” of “atrocity against Hindus” in West Bengal, insinuating that the federal government didn’t do something however Swamy was in Bengal to lift problems with the atrocity with Mamata Banerjee.

Tweet RTed Subramanian Swamy
While Swamy showered praises on Mamata Banerjee and bathed within the glory of his followers praising him, a few of his tweets indicated a really totally different story.
Swamy took to Twitter and declared that he’ll meet the police officers in Bengal and “fact check” the post-poll violence 6 months after it started in May. This was tweeted on twenty fifth November whereas he had retweeted tweets praising himself for mentioning ‘atrocity against Hindus’ in Bengal with Mamta Banerjee a day previous to that.
Around mid Dec.I’ll go along with a VHS workforce to Bengal to evaluate the scenario that developed lately in some components of the State. I’ll speak to officers for doing a truth examine. I recall CM Mamata three years in the past responding favourably once I instructed her about liberating Tarkeshwar Temple— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) November 25, 2021
“Around mid Dec.I will go with a VHS team to Bengal to assess the situation that developed recently in some parts of the State. I will talk to officials for doing a fact check. I recall CM Mamata three years ago responding favourably when I told her about freeing Tarkeshwar Temple”, Swamy tweeted after questions had been raised on his intentions.
There are two operative components of those tweets that Swamy has craftily written. Swamy first stated that he shall be speaking to officers “for doing a fact check”. Doing a fact-check would primarily imply that Swamy doubts the post-poll violence was actual, or had the identical depth and reported, and subsequently, would “fact check” the reviews on violence to defend Mamata. The second a part of the tweet was way more fascinating. After insinuating that he would try to provide a free cross to Mamata within the post-poll violence case, Swamy proceeded to color Mamata as a “good Hindu leader” by saying that she had favoured the liberating of Tarkeshwar temple from authorities management”.
After Swamy met and praised Mamata, a number of people requested the BJP chief, who likes to name himself a ‘Virat Hindu’ why he was assembly Mamata Banerjee after Hindus had been murdered brutally in her regime. Responding to those questions, Swamy lashed out at individuals claiming that they need to be asking this query to the central authorities and never him.
When instructed that legislation and order is a state topic, Swamy lashed out once more, citing the examples of forces in Kashmir.
Tweet by Swamy
In an try and defend himself from criticism, Swamy misled his readers in evaluating the conditions of Bengal and Kashmir. Kashmir is a Union Territory and comes beneath AFSPA. Being a “disturbed area”, the Armed forces and even the paramilitary forces are required to be there to keep up peace and sovereignty of the nation. While elevating questions towards the central authorities and the celebration management for his or her silence on Bengal violence is authentic, Swamy right here appears to be making an attempt to shift your entire blame from Mamata Banerjee.
It can be pertinent to notice that in May itself, the Ministry of Home Affairs had sought a report from the Mamata Banerjee authorities detailing the post-poll violence and what steps had been being taken to convey it beneath management. The state authorities had merely refused to submit the report back to MHA regardless of reminder letters. In August, the central authorities had instructed the Calcutta HC that central businesses like NIA had been able to probe the post-poll violence and help the state police. It was, nonetheless, the courtroom that had refused to take action saying that the timing may not be applicable to switch the circumstances with the state police to central businesses. The courtroom had, earlier than this, requested the NHRC to represent a committee and examine the circumstances of violence and the resultant report had uncovered brutal violence towards BJP employees within the state. Mamata Banerjee on her half had referred to as even the NHRC report “partisan” and an assault on an elected state authorities.
Swamy appears to have ignored your entire sequence of occasions to primarily give Mamata Banerjee a clear chit.
This will not be the primary time that Swamy has showered reward on Mamata and given her reign of terror a free cross. In 2020, Swamy had responded to a tweet criticising her politics, saying: “According to me Mamata Banerjee is a pucca Hindu and Durga Bhakt. On a case by case basis she will act. Her politics is different. That we will fight in the maidan.”
According to Indian Express, Swamy gave a cryptic response when requested about him becoming a member of TMC. “I was already with her (Mamata). There is no need for me to join the party,” he instructed reporters.
