Mamata Banerjee Lashes Out At NHRC Report Leak Over Post-Poll Violence In West Bengal

INDIA Team Latestly|

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on July 15 lashed out at the National Human Rights Commission. The committee is probing alleged incidents of post-poll violence in the state, accusing the state government of showing “appalling apathy” towards the victims of the post-poll violence. Banerjee accused the committee of leaking its probe report to the media and called the move a “political vendetta”. “The NHRC should have respected the court. Instead of leaking the findings to the media, it should have first submitted the same to the court,” she said. The chief minister stated that her government will file a response when the court asks them to. She went on to accuse Prime Minister Narendra Modi of ‘maligning’ the state, “using impartial agencies to settle political scores.” The TMC leader also hit out at the situation of law and order in Uttar Pradesh. She maintained that the central agency is maligning Bengal and said that the violence took place pre-poll when the law and order was under the Election Commission. Watch the video to know more.
