Senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Sandeskhali incident is a shame on our society and democracy.
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee reiterated her demand for the resignation of Union home minister Amit Shah. Miss Banerjee on Wednesday told reporters at Nabanna that BJP is the most corrupt party in the country.
She said, they should clarify about the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh and killings of so many people in encounters in Uttar Pradesh first, before engaging central agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) against Trinamul Congress MLAs on corruption charges. “Four MLAs have been arrested and the central government is using the CBI and ED to threat against them,” the chief minister alleged.
“BJP has a big dacoit, who was involved in corruption when he was in charge of several districts Malda, Murshidabad, Midnapre, Bankura etc,” she said, without taking name of Mr Suvendu Adhikari, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly. Mr Adhikari was the political observer in charge of several districts in the state when he was in the Trinamul Congress.
She also stuck to her earlier stand of demanding Mr Shah’s resignation. How can he say that Trinamul Congress government would collapse if BJP gets 35 LS seats from Bengal in next parliamentary polls? It means that the Union home minister is conspiring against our government, Miss Banerjee said. “How can he topple an elected government based on which rules in the Constitution? The central government is trying to destroy the federal structure of the country. She said that BJP is dividing the country in the name of religion and caste.

It’s clear that Narendra Modi will be Prime Minister of the country again. I can assure you that Mamata Banerjee’s government won’t survive beyond 2025,” Mr Shah had said in the rally.
