West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee accused Home Minister, Amit Shah of inciting violence in the state. She conveyed that Shah was trying to incite violence in the state and was encouraging the police to contribute to unethical acts. While addressing a rally in Memari in the Purba Bardhaman district the TMC supremo commented that “the PM should control Shah, as he may incite riots in the state. I have not seen such a 'gunda' (gangster), 'dangabaaz' (rioteer) home minister in my entire life. Amit Shah is more dangerous than a tiger. People fear talking to him. I will urge PM Narendra Modi to control Amit Shah first. He is inciting riots here"
She further alleges Shah for pressurizing police authorities to "engage in all forms of unethical acts". She said that “the ongoing assembly elections in the state, as a bid "to protect the respect of Bengal". This election is to stop people from turning Bengal into another Gujarat."
Moreover, Banerjee had even previously alleged the central police forces for working at the behest of Shah, following which the Election Commission show-caused her.
