TMC, BJP fuelled tension
Kolkata, Apr 10 (PTI) Condemning the firing incident
in Cooch Behar, which claimed at least four lives, Left Front
chairman Biman Bose on Saturday said provocative statements by
BJP heavyweights and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee have led to
an atmosphere of fear and violence in West Bengal.
Four persons were killed and as many injured in the
vicinity of a polling booth in Cooch Behar”s Sitalkuchi area
when CISF personnel opened fire allegedly after coming under
attack from locals, who “attempted to snatch their rifles”,
according to the police.
Bose, in a statement issued on behalf of the Left,
Congress and the Indian Secular Front, demanded a high-level
probe into the episode by the Election Commission.
The three-party alliance — Sanjukta Morcha — said
its members would hold demonstrations across the state seeking
immediate punishment for the guilty.
Observing that the circumstances that prompted the
central forces to open fire on voters was still “unclear”,
Bose said the poll speeches made by “the prime minister
(Narendra Modi) and home minister (Amit Shah), egging on
people to resort to violence, and the counter comments by
chief minister Mamata Banerjee to gherao central forces” have
fuelled tension in Bengal.
The Left Front leader urged the people of the state to
stay united and rise against religious differences. PTI SUS
