'Army coup' controversy: West Bengal BJP workers file FIR against Mamata Banerjee

New Delhi: An FIR was filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for breaching her oath as a CM and maligning the Indian Army.

BJP leader Roopa Ganguly tweeted the complaint copy filed by the BJP members.

The Trinamool Congress chief had triggered a controversy after questioning presence of Army personnel at state toll plazas and asking was it an "Army coup".

The drama unfolded earlier this month when the TMC supremo alleged the Army has been deployed at the Dankuni and Palsit toll plazas on National Highway 2 (connecting Delhi and Kolkata) without informing the state government.

Denying Banerjee's charges, the Defence Minister and the Eastern Command of the Army had claimed it was a routine annual data collection exercise carried out to assess the availability of load carriers at all the major entry points in various states.

Banerjee's claim of “military coup” was exposed when the Army rejected the West Bengal Chief Minister's allegations that its personnel were deployed at toll plazas without informing the state government and were collecting money.
