West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has reacted on the Rampurhat, Birbhum incident that had begun a political slug- fest between the ruling TMC and the BJP.
Mamata was quoted by ANI as saying , “The incident is condemnable. No one will be spared and this incident is a big conspiracy as some people are trying to defame West Bengal. This is Bengal, not Uttar Pradesh. I had sent a delegation of TMC to Hathras but we were not allowed an entry. But we are not stopping anyone from coming here”.
Banerjee further stated, The government is ours, we are concerned about people in our state. We would never want anyone to suffer. The Birbhum, Rampurhat incident is unfortunate. I have immediately dismissed the OC, SDPO. I will go to Rampurhat tomorrow.
Taking a dig at the Congress and the BJP Mamata added, Such kinds of incidents have happened in Gujarat and Rajasthan too. I am not justifying the incident in Rampurhat. We will take action in a fair manner.
Earlier, Eight people were charred to death as their houses were set on fire in Bogtui village near Rampurhat town of Birbhum district early on Tuesday. The incident is suspected to be the fallout of ruling TMC panchayat official’s murder.
