Amit Shah Takes A Dig At TMC’s Conspiracy Theory On Mamata’s Nandigram Incident
Addressing a rally at the Bankura district in WB, the union home minister took a jibe at the WB CM’s alleged attack claims in Nandigram, stating that he was late for the event due to a glitch in his helicopter and not because of some conspiracy
Union Home Minister Amit Shah took a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee while addressing an election rally at the state’s Ranibandh district yesterday. Apologising to his audience for arriving late to the event, he said that his helicopter suffered a technical snag. Further saying that he would not term it as a conspiracy, he directly took a jibe at the Trinamool Congress’s (TMC) hue and cry about the injuries sustained by the CM during her visit to Nandigram last week.
Continuing that the Election Commission of India (ECI) called the incident an accident and not an attack, the BJP star campaigner questioned Mamata on the rising political killings of BJP workers in Bengal. He asked that while she is talking about her pain and going around in a wheelchair, has she ever thought about the pain of the mothers of the 130 victims who were murdered under her rule.
Yesterday, Shah skipped his attendance from another scheduled gathering in Jhargram, citing a glitch in his helicopter and instead addressed the audience virtually from Kharagpur.
The TMC supremo claimed that she was attacked by unidentified men in her Nandigram constituency on 10 March after she filed her nomination papers from there. The EC had dispatched two observers last week to inspect the site and file a report on the matter. According to the findings by the two-member team, there was no pre-planned motive to harm the CM and what had unfolded at the location was an unfortunate accident. Further, IPS officer Vivek Sahay, who was in-charge of the CM’s security was suspended by the poll watchdog body hours after the lapse in Nandigram.
Mamata will face her former prodigy-turned-BJP member Suvendu Adhikari in the upcoming legislative polls from the Nandigram constituency on 1 April.
