BJP charges Mamata with "dividing" people; CPI-M says TMC has nexus with saffron outfit

BJP charges Mamata with "dividing" people; CPI-M says TMC has nexus with saffron outfit

New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) The BJP today slammed Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for what it said her attempts to "divide" the people of West Bengal on communal lines even as the saffron party said Ms Banerjee will soon realise that her appeasement politics has backfired. "She will realise her folly. Probably she is already realising. Now she has overdone her appeasement so much that today she has to say, 'I am a Hindu'. She has to prove her credential," senior BJP leader in the state Rahul Sinha told Times Now news channel. Mr Sinha accused that the Mamata Banerjee government in the state has tried to "divide" people right from the school level. "Her government today says they will give bicycle to Muslim students but not Hindus," Mr Sinha said. 'Let her speak against us. The more she targets BJP, we will be benefiting more," Mr Sinha said. The BJP leader was reacting to Ms Banerjee's appeal earlier that all regional and like-minded parties should come together to fight the BJP. "I have met Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) several times in Delhi. We have extended our cooperation, but what did we get in return? The Centre is bypassing the state government. It is violating the federal structure. It is interfering in State matters," Ms Banerjee alleged. Meanwhile, CPI-M leader Ritabrata Banerjee in his reaction to Ms Banerjee's appeal for united efforts to counter the BJP said, Trinamool Congress supremo is a "pathological liar". He further alleged that there is a "tacit" understanding between Trinamool Congress and the BJP. "On the eve of 2016 elections, she said if names of tainted leaders were out earlier; she would not have given them tickets. But now she has come out with a conspiracy theory," he said. Earlier, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said Mamata Banerjee is playing "victim card" as regard the CBI cases against Trinamool leaders. Besides on-going probe into the Sharada chit fund scam, the CBI has this week filed an FIR to launch an investigation against Trinamool leaders on Narada cash-for-job scam under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Indian Penal Code.
