Kolkata : West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Sunday launched a scathing attack on PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah accusing them of trying to organise ‘coup’ in West Bengal.
Accusing PM Modi behind the action, CM Banerjee started a ‘dharna’ against the ‘move by the BJP’. “I am going to stage a dharna to save the federal structure. From today I’m going to sit near the Metro Channel. Tomorrow proceedings in state assembly will take place where I will hold a meeting. This dharna means satyagraha,” said CM Mamata.
She further said that the CBI action against Kolkata Police chief is politically vindictive.
A team of CBI officers was stopped from entering the residence of Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in Kolkata on Sunday when they had gone to question him in connection with chit fund scam cases. A virtual showdown ensued as Kolkata Police personnel forcefully took away some of the CBI officers to a nearby police station and detained them amid the commotion.
Throwing her weight behind the city police chief, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee rushed to the Loudon Street residence of Kumar in central Kolkata and held a meeting.
Addressing a press conference after the meeting, CM Banerjee accused the BJP of torturing West Bengal. She alleged the BJP of forcibly trying to destroy the state after she held the brigade rally. CM Banerjee further accused them of trying to wrest the state by strength of force.

She further accused NSA Ajit Doval of giving direction to CBI on instruction from PM Modi.
“Law and order is state subject, why should we give you (CBI) everything,” asked CM Banerjee on sharing of documents on chit fund scam probe with agency.
She added, “I am proud to say that my responsibility is to give protection to the force. Without notice, you are coming to Kolkata Police Commissioner’s house. We could have arrested CBI but we left. I will stand with my force. I respect them. I felt very sad today. This is the destruction of the federal structure.”
