“Amit Shah responsible” for attack on TMC activists in Tripura: Mamata Banerjee

TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday blamed Union Home Minister Amit Shah over the recent attacks on her nephew and TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and other party workers, and asserted that she won’t be frightened by such acts.

Her allegation comes days after Abhishek Banerjee and Trinamool student activists were attacked in separate incidents in BJP-ruled Tripura. Here, the party expects to spread out its base ahead of the 2023 assembly elections

CM Mamata Banerjee condemned the attack and met injured TMC workers at state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata .

According to her “The BJP is running an anarchic government in Tripura, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and wherever they are in power. We condemn the attacks on Abhishek and our party activists in Tripura,” she said after meeting injured Trinamool workers.

Such attacks would not have been possible without the Union home minister’s active support. He is behind these attacks which were carried out in front of Tripura Police as it remained mute spectators. The Tripura chief minister doesn’t have the audacity to order such attacks,” she added.
