Accusing the West Bengal government of misusing the funds provided by the Central government, BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday demanded an answer from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on where all the money went.

"There can never be development of the state with such acts of violence", Shah said, reminding that the TMC leadership too had to fight the entrenched violence of the Left earlier in the state.

"Amit Shahji told us that instead of complaining of attack against our party workers by TMC, we should put up a counter resistance through a mass movement against their (TMC) misrule".

BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday said his party has stopped the politics of appeasement in the country and introduced politics of performance.

Calling for bringing an immediate end to political violence, he said this would even benefit the perpetrators.

He added, "As BJP has been ruling Gujarat for many years and the Gujarat model has remained very popular in other states too, we will focus on it".

Can UN Sanctions Bring North Korea On Negotiating Table? US Hopeful
In any such talks, the first issue that Beijing may wish to talk about is who would control North Korea's nuclear weapons arsenal. Despite global efforts to stop North Korea's missile program, the country continues testing its ballistic missiles.

Meanwhile, Amit Shah met the families of victims of political violence in West Bengal and expressed grief over their loss and suffering.

Chatterjee's comments came hours after the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) chief, now in the city on a three-day visit, accused the state of misusing central funds and lacking behind in terms of overall development.

All these happened because they did not support the ideology of the Trinamool Congress.

Before the party leaders' meeting, Mr Shah paid floral tribute to Swami Vivekananda at his ancestral house in north Kolkata. "No one has the freedom to be a part of any political party other than the TMC", he said. He has said nowhere else does one see so much political violence. Several state party leaders informed Shah of the difficulties that the party is facing at the grassroot level in the state.

Sentu Mondal and Hemen Mondal from Malda district who were allegedly attacked by TMC activists a year ago during Durga Puja met Shah.
