Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who recently hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Jagat Prakash Nadda by mocking his name as ‘Chaddha, Nadda, Fadda, Bhaddha,’ has again expressed displeasure with her party Trinamool Congress over the summon issued to the three senior IPS officers on Saturday to serve in central deputation.
Opposing the centre’s move to transfer the IPS officers, TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee on Saturday wrote a three page article to Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla alleging “political vendetta” as the motive for the summons.
“We want to inform you that law and order is within the domain of the state under 7th Schedule of the State list…How in respect of the law and order situation you can call both the officers for any sorts of discussion?” he asked.
“It appears that with a political motive and at the instance of your minister, who is a political person belonging to Bharatiya Janata Party, you have issued the said letter. You are trying to coerce the officers of West Bengal with political vindictiveness. It appears you are interfering with the federal structure,” Banerjee added.
He also claimed that a person, who is a convict in a case and named in 59 other criminal cases, was in the convoy of Nadda on December 10 and “made provocative gestures” to the TMC supporters standing on the roadside.
The MHA had on Friday summoned Chief Secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay and DGP Virendra asking them to present themselves on December 14 for an explanation on the law and order situation in the state.
