Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal on Thursday attacked the Centre over the violence that took place in the national capital on Tuesday. She, while criticizing the Centre for not being able to control the situation, asserted – “first tackle Delhi then think of Bengal”.
Banerjee, at the state assembly on Thursday, stated – “We are with farmers and we want the withdrawal of these laws. The farm laws have been passed forcibly. The Modi government has badly handled the situation in Delhi and BJP is responsible for what had happened there. First tackle Delhi then think of Bengal”.
Critically lambasting the violence taken place during the massive tractor rally in Delhi, the Bengal CM demanded the withdrawal of the three new farm laws. She asserted – “Police could not tackle the situation in Delhi. If it would have been Bengal then ‘Amit bhaiya’ would have said “kya hua?” (what happened?). We strongly condemn it. We want these three laws to be repealed. Either you withdraw the laws or leave the chair”.
Notably, more than 25 FIRs have been filed in different police stations in the national capital, whilst 19 farmer leaders involved in the violence have already been arrested. “A total of 394 police personnel sustained injuries in the violence and several of them are still admitted to the hospitals”, revealed Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava.
