West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday accused Union Home Minister Amit Shah of orchestrating the recent attack on Abhishek Banerjee, her nephew and the party national general secretary, and other TMC activists in Tripura.
Trinamool Congress supremo also visited the SSKM Hospital in Kolkata to meet those injured in the attack.
“Such attacks would not have been possible without the Union home minister’s active support. He is behind these attacks which were carried out in front of Tripura Police as it remained mute spectators. The Tripura chief minister doesn’t have the audacity to order such attacks,” she said.
Mamata alleged that the saffron party is running anarchic governments in Tripura, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and wherever they are in power.
Abhishek Banerjee’s vehicle was attacked in Tripura on August 2, when he was on his way to the Tripurasundari Temple in Gomati district.
5 days later, on August 7, TMC youth leaders Sudip Raha and Jaya Dutta, who are camping in Tripura for organisational activities, were injured in an attack by ruling BJP supporters at Ambassa in Dhalai district, 90 from state capital Agartala.
