Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra, who was recently criticised for calling the press “two paisa worth”, said the alleged attack on BJP chief JP Nadda’s convoy in West Bengal was “staged”.
Moitra said CRPF, CISF and every central force accompany each “two-bit leader” who visits the state.
“Had heard of college BYOB parties. @BJP having a BYOS (Bring Your Own Security) party everyday in Bengal – CRPF, CISF & every central force imaginable accompanies each two-bit leader who visits. Shame they can’t protect you from staged “attacks”,” she said in a tweet.
She also called the West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar “unelected hatchet-man” of the BJP.
“BJP’s unelected hatchet-man masquerading as Governor to ‘investigate’ alleged attack on BJP President’s convoy!? Seems the BJP not even pretending anymore that Uncle Ji is an unbiased constitutional functionary, but a lackey sent from Delhi to do their bidding,” she said in another tweet.
Moitra’s remarks followed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s comments, who alleged that the attack on BJP president’s convoy was “drama” to divert attention from lack of attendance in his rally.
