West Bengal Election 2021: Prime Minister Modi in Bengal Today
West Bengal Assembly Election: Prime Minister Modi today said that Mamata Banerjee never said that let there be a peaceful elections. He said people of West Bengal can understand her intention. He said she knows that a huge number of votes are cast for the BJP. “This is why she is against high voting percentage. Didi knows it’s her goons who are creating violence so she doesn’t speak of action against them. How will she do it? This is happening under her nose,” he said.
Home Minister Amit Shah and Mamata Banerjee today held each other responsible for firing incident in which five people died in Cooch Behar. Four died in central police firing while one person was shot at by miscreants. Shah said that it was Mamata who instigated the people to gherao CAPF. “Didi instigated people, told them to gherao CRPF and loot them. People listened to her, weapons were snatched, bullets were fired, 4 people died. Didi had you not instigated them they wouldn’t have died,” he said.
Shah also said that a fifth person also died. A youth, Anand Burman had gone to cast his vote “but TMC goons shot him dead”. “Didi is speaking about the 4 but nothing on Anand Burman. Why? It’s because he belonged to Rajbongshi community that is not a part of her vote bank,” he said.
Amit Shah today reiterated that his party will implement CAA in Bengal and will provide citizenship to refugees. “Shouldn’t the Matuas and Namshudras get citizenship? Didi says they shouldn’t, because she’s afraid of her vote banks. Her exit on the 2nd of May is certain. We will implement the CAA and provide Indian citizenship to refugees in the region,” he said.

"People in authority must show statesmanship and ensure respect for constitutional institutions and CAPF engaged in public duty," the Governor said in a tweet. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday described the incident of firing as "genocide" and claimed that the tragedy was the "result of a conspiracy" hatched by the saffron party to intimidate voters.
