The Trinamool Congress on Sunday accused Union Home Minister Amit Shah of partaking in divisive politics over the demise of 5 individuals in Cooch Behar district through the fourth part of polling. Senior celebration chief and Rajya Sabha MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy instructed reporters right here that Shah was knowingly ”suppressing information” and giving a communal twist to the incident for electoral positive factors.
Roy mentioned Shah’s feedback about West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee solely highlighting the killing of 4 individuals in firing by CISF personnel on Saturday and never mentioning the demise of one other man elsewhere within the district, was unfaithful and made with a sinister design. ”Our CM has referred to the deaths of 5 individuals in two incidents in Sitalkuchi and paid tribute to all of the 5 brothers. To our data, the state authorities will present compensation to their households,” Roy mentioned Apart from the 4 individuals who have been killed when CISF personnel opened fireplace, an 18-year-old voter was gunned down exterior a polling sales space after clashes broke out between activists of the ruling TMC and the BJP.
