Didi’s advice to gherao Central forces instigated people to attack CISF in Sitalkuchi, says Shah
SANTIPUR (WB) :
UNION Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday launched a scathing attack against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, alleging that her advice to gherao Central forces had instigated people to attack CISF in Cooch Behar’s Sitalkuchi that led to four deaths in firing by security personnel. He also accused the TMC supremo of doing appeasement politics even in case of deaths. “Mamata Banerjee had advised people to gherao Central forces. Is that not responsible for the deaths in Sitalkuchi?
Her advice had instigated the people to attack the CISF,” Shah told reporters after a roadshow in Santipur in Nadia district. Apart from the four deaths in what the CISF described as a “self-defence action,” a BJP worker was also shot dead by unidentified persons in the same Sitalkuchi Assembly constituency during the fourth phase of voting on Saturday. Shah alleged that Banerjee did appeasement politics by paying tributes to the people killed in the CISF firing but did not condole the death of the BJP worker, identified as Anand Barman, as he was from the Rajbongshi community who are not her vote bank.
