BJP protests Mamata`s sops to imams

The chief minister had on April three announced payment of honorarium of Rs 2,500 per month through the Wakf Board to 30,000 imams in the state.



Kolkata: The BJP on Wednesday criticised West
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee`s announcement of sops
to imams and said no government could provide allowances to
any religious leader of any community.

"This is nothing, but bribery to secure Muslim votes
in the coming panchayat elections," state party president
Rahul Sinha said.

"Waqf Board cannot be given public money by the state
government for payment of allowances to imams," Sinha said
after a protest rally from College Square to Gandhi statue.

The chief minister had on April three announced
payment of honorarium of Rs 2,500 per month through the Wakf
Board to 30,000 imams in the state.
