New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday came down heavily on the West Bengal government over post-election violence in the state saying that it  clearly showed that the people indulging in violence have not accepted defeat in true spirit.

Addressing the valedictory function of annual third year camp, RSS chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat without uttering the name of chief minister of West Bengal said, “Either the perpetrators of crime are criminals or belong to a particular political party. It is not worth to blame the outside forces responsible for arson and killings of political activists.”

“It seems like the system of law and order has collapsed and the government and administration have completely failed. One can understand that a particular political party failed to get desired results but to control law and order is their fundamental responsibility,” Dr Bhagwat added.

Referring to the poll results, Dr Bhagwat said those elected in the election recently, have an increased responsibility to fulfil their promises made to the electorate and that they should live up to the expectations of the country.

In the wake of the recent assault on doctors in West Bengal, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat advised chief minister Mamata Banerjee to leave her “ego of power” and protect doctors from any form of violence. He also asserted that powers that try to be a hurdle in the development of country should be suppressed.

“What is happening West Bengal? Has anything like this ever happened? Action should be taken by the administration. (Addressing Mamata Banerjee) Never have ego of power or else people will teach a lesson,” the RSS chief said.
