NEW DELHI: The BJP on Thursday accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of patronising criminals like Anubrata Mandal.
West Bengal BJP co-incharge Amit Malviya said that Mamata Banerjee provides state protection to people who run crime and extortion syndicates under her watch.
Malviya said quoting his old tweet:- Mamata Banerjee patronises criminals like Anubroto Mondal. As Chief Minister and Home Minister of West Bengal, she gives state protection to those who operate crime and extortion syndicates under her watch. Partha Chaterjee or Anubroto Mondal, the buck stops at Mamata Banerjee."
On March 26, Malviya posted a picture and stated, "What message is being sent by Bengal's Home Minister by transporting Anubroto Mondal, the local goonda in Birbhum who operated on Anarul Hossain's orders and is currently in custody for the Rampurhat massacre? This image illustrates how the criminalization of WB politics begins at the top." Dr. Sukanta Majumdar, the president of the West Bengal BJP, tweeted after the CBI detained Anubrata Mandal this morning: "Cattle trafficking is being ignored by CM @MamataOfficial.
Slowly slowly, culprits in such heinous crimes are being arrested. Anubrato Mondal is the same guy who warned that murders from the past, including those in 2011, 14, 16, and 19, would happen again." Around 9.50 a.m., a sizable group of members of the central armed forces escorted the CBI officials as they arrived at Mandal's Bolpur bungalow. Following a little more than an hour of interrogation, they detained him in relation to the livestock smuggling scheme. After the Trinamool Congress leader ignored summonses from the central agency ten times in a row, the arrest was effected.
