The BJP state president also said, “We have given in writing that we want to meet Vikas Singh and 11 other party workers, they’re innocent and have done nothing wrong. They (administration) said that only local MP is allowed to meet, I asked them to show me the Act where it is written. As an MP, it’s a legal right that I can visit the jail. I am here till the jailer’s sense prevails, but it seems those who are on the other side of the call aren’t allowing it. For Mamata Banerjee, her will is the constitution.”

Speaking about the incidents of Sandeshkhali, Majumdar said that the main goal in visiting Basirhat is to assure the BJP workers that the entire Bharatiya Janta Party is with them.
“The main goal of visiting Basirhat is to assure the BJP workers that the entire Bharatiya Janta Party is with them, from the Prime Minister to every Booth President everyone is standing with them and we will get them out of jail,” he said.
Majumdar also questioned why TMC leader Sheikh Shahjahan had not been arrested and said, “I wanted to ask DGP, why Sheikh Shahjahan has not yet been arrested. ST Commission must visit and they have visited the place as the major victims of Sandeshkhali atrocities are STs.”
Earlier on Monday, the West Bengal BJP president had announced that the party would hold a 72-hour-long protest in the coming days demanding the arrest of Sheikh Shahjahan amid the turmoil in the state over the Sandeshkhali violence.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, Mazumdar said, “We will hold a minimum 72-hour long protest in the coming days demanding the arrest of Sheikh Shahjahan. The probable day of protest is February 22.”
Training guns at Mamata Banerjee for accusing the BJP of instigating violence in the state, Majumdar said that Mamata Banerjee should be a little more sensitive towards the women in the state and refrain from making such statements.
Notably, the Supreme Court on Monday stayed the Lok Sabha Privileges Committee proceedings against West Bengal senior officials in the matter relating to the Sandeshkhali protest.
The Privileges Committee notice came on a complaint filed by BJP Member of Parliament Sukanta Majumdar for alleged misconduct, brutality, and causing life-threatening injuries by the police officials and district administration of Basirhat, North 24 Parganas District of West Bengal.
West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali area has been witnessing massive unrest for over 10 days as women protestors are seeking justice against alleged atrocities committed by TMC leader Sheikh Shajahan and his aides
