They are anti-Bengal.” Abhishek underlined that social reformer Rajaram Mohan Roy played an important role in ending the inhumane practice of Sati, thereby saving the lives of countless widows. He stressed that Trinamool understands how to respect figures like Rammohan Roy, Vidyasagar and Vivekananda. He said, “We do not need to learn from BJP, which only propagates the message of religious hatred.”
