Mamata's allegation baseless, meant to blackmail people: Tripathi

BJP chief Dilip Ghosh demanded Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's resignation

Mr Singh was apprised of the situation.

Following violent clashes in Baduria and Basirhat areas of West Bengal's North 24 Parganas over an "objectionable" Facebook post, the Ministry of Home Affairs has sought a detailed report from the Mamata Banerjee-led government.

The row started on Tuesday, when the Governor and the Chief Minister had heated exchanges during a telephonic conversaiton related to the communal violence in North 24 Parganas district's Baduria.

According to Tripathi, the chief minister's unprecedented attack amounted to "insulting and humiliating" him and his office.

The student of Class X, who put up the allegedly blasphemous post, has been arrested, even as shop-owners downed shutters in areas such as Keosha market, Banshtala, Ramchandrapur and Tentulia, agencies reported, quoting the local police.

The state government clamped prohibitory orders and suspended internet services in the region. Her allegation is baseless and meant only to emotionally blackmail people of West Bengal.




In fact, the governor had suggested to the chief minister for seeking forces from the Centre, it said.

Also, the ruling party has written to President Pranab Mukherjee, marking a copy to Union home minister Rajnath Singh, against the governor.

Countering Chatterjee's allegation that the Raj Bhavan had become a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) den, the release said: "The Governor is of the view that Raj Bhavan is not a department of the state government and it is open to every citizen to approach him for redressal of his or her grievances".

Incidents of communal tension are frequently occurring in various parts of the state. We have been demanding President's Rule in Bengal for some time. The talks between us were confidential in nature and no one is expected to disclose it. Her anger is because the Governor performed his constitutional duty and enquired about the (Baduria) incident. "The Centre should send a team of central observers to assess the worsening law and order situation in the state", President of BJP's Bengal unit Dilip Ghosh told newspersons. Her vote-bank politics has completely changed the demography in border areas, and now, has become a threat to national security.

She said the riots are serious issue and she would handle it seriously. It was a humiliation for not Banerjee but for the model of parliamentary democracy which is in use in this country for 70 years. What Is My Government's Fault?
