The alleged Trinamool Congress workers have today set BJP office in Hoogly on fire, hours after later’s office in Kolkata was said to be attacked by the members of the ruling party in the state. The tension between both parties have increased since yesterday after the arrest of its senior leader and Lok Sabha MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay in the Rose valley scam case. Trinamool Congress have been protesting since the arrest of Sudip Bandyopadhyay since yesterday.

Accusing the BJP-led NDA Government of targeting leaders of Trinamool Congress in the wake of her protesting its demonetisation drive, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had on the same day said that the centre was using the ED, CBI and Income Tax department against those who raised their voice against note ban. Asserting that her party’s protest on demonetisation would continue, the chief minister added she could not think that a senior party leader like Sudip Bandyopadhyay would be arrested. She also claimed to have information that the centre wants to arrest many other TMC leaders.

Mamata Banerjee had also said that the party was behind Sudip Bandyopadhyay, who was arrested due to “pressure from the PMO”. She also asked, “why should Narendra Modi and Amit Shah not be arrested?” The TMC supremo had also convened a meeting to chalk out the party’s action plan.

    Mamta is proving that she can better than the commies, be it eliminating the opposition or chasing out industry out of Bengal. Only history will contain ........once upon a time there were icons in Bengal, swami vivekananda, Subhash Bose, Rabindra nath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee and many many more.

    Yaa so in your opinion your icon will be Modi? There are a lot of eminent and knowledgeable people in Bengal. Usin the CBI to subdue oppostn is an old congress trick. Th bjp is just acting like a tyrant central party Govt. Why not arrest Bjp leaders that were named by tapas pal along with him and sudip bandyopadhyay? That would probably be fair wouldn't it ? Ohh no! There is no proof and neither there is any against Sudip Bandyopadhyay till now. Please Protect Babul Supriyo for he is a rotten egg :)
