On Board Air India One: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Saturday that the Home Ministry was looking into Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee`s complaints that central forces were being misused in Maoist-affected areas in West Bengal.
"I am aware of those complaints. The Home Ministry is looking into it," the Prime Minister said on his way back from a tour of Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Banerjee, Trinamool Congress chief and a key ally of the ruling Congress, has threatened to take to the streets if the central forces are not withdrawn from Maoist-affected areas of the Left-ruled state where Assembly Elections are due next year.
