BJP state unit to take Mamata to court over allegations against the army


Mamata BanerjeeThe BJP West Bengal unit is planning to take legal recourse against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who had raised a commotion about a coup attempt and alleged that the army was extorting money at different toll plazas in West Bengal.

The issue was being looked up by the party’s legal cell before moving the court against Banerjee, said state party president Dilip Ghosh.

She made disparaging remarks against the Centre for deploying the army at several toll plazas across the state without informing the ruling government.

Both the Centre and the Indian Army flayed Banerjee over the allegations with the army. The army was withdrawn from all the plazas across West Bengal. But an enraged BJP’s state unit wants to take Banerjee to court over her remarks alleging extortion by the army.

West Bengal governor KN Tripathi also reacted on the chief minister’s comments. “One should be careful while making any allegation against the army.”
