The BJP on Monday sought to scotch speculation of its tacit understanding with the Trinamool Congress, saying the cordial relationship between the Centre and the state government should not be misunderstood as bonhomie.
Former Trinamool Congress leader Asif Khan's wife Tabassum on Sunday lodged a complaint with a city police station alleging that the Bidhannagar police, who had arrested him, conducted a search operation at her residence last night without any warrant.
The Trinamool Congress on Sunday lodged a complaint with the Election Commission accusing BJP President Amit Shah of flouting the election Model Code of Conduct by staying at a government guest house during his campaign for the Assembly bye-elections in West Bengal.
Targeting West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee once again in the multi-crore rupee Saradha scam, suspended Trinamool Congress Chief MP Kunal Ghosh on Saturday demanded that police should grill TMC chief adding that “for truth to emerge, Mamata should be questioned.”
Buoyed by its vote swell in West Bengal in Lok Sabha polls, BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday embarked on a two-day visit to the state in his bid to strengthen the party base and consolidate the gains to project it as an alternative to Left and Trinamool Congress there.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) which initiated the money laundering probe into the multi-crore Saradha scam in April 2013, was in the process of finalising its investigation, ED officials said.
After Trinamool Congress MP Tapas Pal,a party MLA has sparked controversy with his "insensitive" remark that "as long as the world exists, rape will be there", inviting strong condemnation from women's rights groups and parties with BJP demanding police action against the legislator.
Senior Congress leader and
External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday questioned
the Left Front government`s stand on acquisition of farmland
to set up industry in West Bengal.
This is the first time in the 33 year of history of the Left Front rule in West Bengal that they seem to be on a sticky wicket, especially after the blow they received in the Panchayat elections in May last year and subsequent polls to 11 municipalities in several districts and in some by-elections held recently.
