Reacting to Mamata's decision, Vijayvargiya said,''Observing the death anniversary & following his thinking are 2 different things. Mamata ji is observing his death anniversary, I thank her. But she should also follow his thinking so that violence, especially political violence, ends in WB.''

''The manner in which she is getting BJP workers killed for vendetta, is not in line with Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee's thinking. His politics was one which unites the nation. Mamata ji's politics is one which divides the nation,'' he further said.

Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was born in Kolkata. He was the founder of Jan Sangh. He was Minister of Commerce and Industries from 1951 to 1952.

Mukherjee, who at the beginning of his political career, was with Congress had quit the party after differences with Jawaharlal Nehru over Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K).
