Centre government can't command us with new BSF law: TMC president

Centre government can't command us with new BSF law: TMC president

Mamata Banerjee, CM of West Bengal, said she would raise a solid objection to the extension of the Border Security Force' (BSF) jurisdictional area in the state from 15 km to 50 km from the international border with Bangladesh On Wednesday when she meets Narendra Modi Prime Minister in Delhi.

"I will never allow the Centre to control us. Law and order is a state subjects. We have respect for BSF, but we will not allow it to control our region. The BJP is using Central agencies to establish the authority,"

Banerjee said at the Kolkata airport before boarding a Delhi flight in the afternoon. She will be staying in Delhi for four days stay.

On 17th November, the Bengal legislative assembly passed a resolution against the Centre's 11th October order that increased the jurisdiction of the BSF in Assam, Bengal, and Punjab. Punjab, which shares a border with Pakistan, has already passed a resolution against the amended BSF law. Bengal'sBengal's international border is the longest among all Indian states. BJP-ruled Assam, which also shares a border with Bangladesh, has not objected.

Trinamool Congress president added

"At the meeting with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi , I will also raise issues related to the development of West Bengal,"

Trinamool Congress president also expressed concern about the alleged attacks on her party workers in Tripura ahead of the state's 25th November civic body elections.

Banerjee said.

"There is no democracy in the BJP-ruled Tripura. This is a farce in the name of election. Tripura is burning. Our popular leader Saayoni Ghosh was arrested yesterday on trumped-up charges of an attempt to murder. Our supporters were assaulted twice inside a police station. Where is the National Human Rights Commission now?"

Banerjee said

"After reaching Delhi, I will meet my members of Parliament who are staging an agitation outside the office of Amit Shah. The Union home minister refused to meet them. I will not take part in the agitation but only express solidarity with our MPs. They wanted to hold an agitation outside Shah'sShah's home, but I stopped them in view of security issues. He (Shah) is a BJP leader, but he is sitting in the chair of the home minister. We have the right to talk to him,"

Drawing a comparison between the alleged attacks on the TMC in Tripura and NHRC probe into post-poll violence in Bengal, the chief minister said:

"We did not stop any BJP leader from campaigning in Bengal in the recent assembly polls. There was one minor incident involving J P Nadda'sNadda's convoy, and all commissions arrived in Bengal. Fake news was circulated against us on social media. People will give a befitting reply to what is happening in Tripura."

Chief minister said

"It is unfortunate that they (BJP) are not even following the orders of the Supreme Court. The BJP is scared. It will ultimately be defeated. [The issue of violence in] Tripura will not remain confined to Tripura only. It will be raised in Mumbai, Delhi, and all over India,"
