New Delhi: Mamnta accuses that in a bid to divert attention from NDA's mammoth failures, center is playing dirty tactics. Speaking to the media today,Mamata Bannerji has pinpointed the center for all unrest in West Bengal's Basirhat. She blamed the center of interference in the state's affairs and subsequently dismantling the federal federal structure.
All unrest in the state, says the West Bengal CM is because the center is colliding with external forces. The BJP has pre-planned everything and is trying t0 bring the state on its knees. The fiery CM said that she will order judicial probe into the incident and this will help the truth to emerge.
The CM went on to complain that the center was not cooperating with West Bengal.
What sparked as a small turbulace after a class 11 student posted a blasphemous mesage on Facebook has now developed into a major flame which appears to be engulfing the peace and harmony of the sate so much so that Section 144 also had been imposed in Basirhat following violent protests over a social media post.
Earlier thisweek a war of words broke between Chief Minister Mamata Bannerji and West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi. Mamata pointed fingers at West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi of threatening her which made her even consider the option of quitting the CM chair a bout of allegations and counter allegations have started.
Then came a comment from her party colleague Derek O'Brien who sides with her leader and said that Raj Bhavan has become RSS 'shakha'.
In an open confrontation with Tripathi, the firebrand Trinamool Congress(TMC) supremo further alleged that the Governor was acting like a "BJP block president."
The Governor for his part expressed surprise over Banerjee's "attitude and language" and said there was nothing in his talk for which the chief minister felt insulted, threatened or humiliated.
Alleging that the Governor threatened her over phone, Banerjee said, "The way he spoke taking the side of BJP, I felt insulted. I have told him that he cannot talk like this."
Banerjee said the Governor spoke to her in connection with a communal incident in the state.
"BJP leaders were meeting him and the Governor is saying whatever he likes," she said, and asked, "Why should he take one side?" she asked.
Tripathi defended himself against the allegation levelled by the chief minister through a statement issued by the Raj Bhavan here
"The Hon ble Governor is surprised at the attitude and language used by the Hon ble Chief Minister during the Press conference today.
"The talks between the Hon ble Chief Minister and the Hon ble Governor were confidential in nature and none is expected to disclose it," the statement said.
It said that the Governor asked the chief minister to ensure peace and law and order by all means.
