Kolkata: Protests faced by Mamata Banerjee at Kamduni village in North 24 Parganas district when she had gone there to visit family of a college student who was raped and murdered, were indicative of the resentment against the West Bengal government, a CPI-M leader said on Tuesday.

"The protest is a sign that common people are not taking things lying down. It is a proof of resentment against the government," CPI-M leader Surya Kanta Mishra said while addressing a rally here.

He said it was strange that Banerjee undertook the visit 10 days after the incident, without informing anybody.

Mishra also questioned her description of the protesters as "CPI(M) people", saying the entire panchayat had been won by Trinamool Congress and that too uncontested.

"Those hooligans who had celebrated TMC's uncontested victory are the ones who are involved in this rape," Mishra alleged.
