‘Judiciary’ is the last resort to ‘save Bengal’, said BJP while lashing out at Abhishek Banerjee, Mamata Banerjee’s nephew on Sunday.
This comes following the Saturday rally at the industrial township of Haldia in West Bengal, where Abhishek Banerjee launched a scathing attack on a section of the judiciary for the Calcutta High Court that ordered directing CBI probe in various issues in the state.
Describing a section of the judiciary as biased, Abhishek Banerjee had said that a couple of judges are acting at the behest of others by directing CBI probes on minor issues.
Reacting to the same, West Bengal BJP co-incharge Amit Malviya tweeted, “While Mamata Banerjee is weakening India’s federal structure, attempting to curtail Governor’s jurisdiction, her nephew goes a step further, brazenly intimidates the judiciary, accuses them of conniving, handing over cases to the CBI. Judiciary is the last resort to #SaveBengal.”
On Saturday, West Bengal BJP spokesman Shamik Bhattacharya said that the statements prove the fear and frustration among the Trinamool leaders. “The manner in which Abhishek Banerjee has slammed the judiciary is unthinkable and tantamount to contempt of court,” he had said.
