The two-day BJP state working committee meeting in Siliguri in North Bengal resolved to launch a movement in protest against post-poll violence in West Bengal.
Urging West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to put an end to such attacks on opposition, the meeting on June 18 passed a resolution which called for a movement to stop such atrocities.
In another resolution, the meeting referred to the attack on minorities in neighbouring Bangladesh and called upon the Sheikh Hasina government to put a halt to such attacks.
