RANAGHAT, 12 APRIL: With the blame-game over the Cooch Behar firing incident between Trinamul Congress and BJP continuing unabated, Trinamul Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday sharpened her attacks saying that those threatening of more Cooch Behar-like killings should be banned politically.

“Some political leaders are threatening of more Sitalkuchi-like incidents, while others are saying that the death toll should have been higher. I am stunned and shocked to see such reactions. What are these leaders up to? They should be politically banned,” Miss Banerjee said, while addressing an election rally at Ranaghat in Nadia district.

The reaction comes after the BJP state president Dilip Ghosh yesterday threatened that more such incidents may happen if “naughty boys” take the law into their hands and that more than four people should have been killed in the firing.

Expressing her wonder over the BJP leader’s reaction following the Sitalkuchi incident where four people were killed in firing by CISF jawans after a mob of villagers tried to capture the booth and snatch the rifles of the jawans, Miss Banerjee alleged that the BJP is killing its own workers and leaders and damaging their vehicles “to bring a bad name to the TMC”.

“Before conspiring to kill four persons in CISF firing, the BJP, a party of murderers, killed a Rajbongshi brother,” she said.

Slamming the Union home minister Amit Shah who blamed Mamata Banerjee for paying tributes only to four persons killed in CISF firing while she remained silence on the death of a Rajbanshi youth in Sitalkuchi, Miss Banerjee accused him for communalizing the death of a youth and said, “You cannot succeed in your nefarious game to divide the people of West Bengal. This is not Uttar Pradesh or Gujarat.”

Alleging that Shah had hatched the conspiracy of Cooch Behar killings with the full knowledge of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the feisty TMC leader said, “After returning to power, I will order a probe to unravel the sequence of events, who were involved, how it all started, whether any rumour was at play…everything.”

She urged people not to vote for a party that encourages “firing on voters standing in a queue”.

Claiming that her government has given land rights to people settled in refugee colonies in the state, the chief minister said, “The BJP has sent 14 lakh Bengalis in Assam to detention camps. The same fate may await you if they come to power in West Bengal.”

Asserting that she is a Brahmin woman and caste identity is not important to her, Miss Banerjee said, “I consider myself inseparable from Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, SCs, STs, OBCs and all other communities. We don’t exclude anyone in the name of caste, community or religion. Unlike the BJP, we consider everyone as humans”.
