lastminute newsSome People Malign Police For Political Gains: Mamata Banerjee SonDakika-Haberleri.Net
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, without taking names, said on Sunday that the state police and the administration -- despite toiling hard day in and day out to overcome crises -- were being maligned by some people for political gains.
Ms Banerjee, who inaugurated several Durga puja pandals in Kolkata during the day, was apparently referring to BJP leaders, who had said that the police, in collusion with the government, were trying to suppress evidence in the recent cases of unnatural death of BJP camp leaders.
Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has also expressed concern over the law and order situation in frequent tweets, citing incidents of murder, kidnapping, rape and the recent custodial death of a man, who, the BJP said, was a worker of its party.
Ms Banerjee, however, said, "Some people only believe in blaming and maligning the police force and the state.
"They forget the work done by the police during crisis situations, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and even at other times... If you show disrespect to someone, you will be paid back in your own coin."
