She had claimed that the army was deployed without state government’s permission. She had also threatened that her government would fight a legal battle.
Speaking on the issue the governor, without naming the CM said that any person should take care and think twice before making any allegations against the army.After Mamata Banerjee made the allegation for the fist time on Thursday evening on the issue both TMC and BJP leaders continue to make allegations against each other. Yesterday the matter was also discussed in the Parliament.
Yesterday, while slamming Mamata Banerjee for the allegations on the army, Union Minister Babul Supriyo had said Bengalis all over the world “hang their heads in shame” over her insinuation and wondered how “low the politics could go”.
Reacting to Banerjee’s protest over army presence at toll plazas in West Bengal, Supriyo accused her Trinamool Congress of doing “such PR activities” in a “desperate attempt” to position itself as a national party.
“All Bengali hang their heads in shame. At a time when Army is fighting everyday for us, she is accusing them of extorting money from trucks. I am very sad and my head is down with shame as such comments are coming from West Bengal, that too from the elected Chief Minister,” Supriyo said outside Parliament.
“Look at social media, Bengalis all across the globe hang their heads in shame. How low the politics could go?” he asked.
