KRISHNAGAR, 19 JUNE: Suvendu Adhikari, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and the Leader of Opposition in the West Bengal assembly, on Saturday, announced that he would file Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the High Court regarding the false cases slapped against his party members across the state by the ruling party with an appeal to grant permission to the CBI for investigating all such cases.

Mr Adhikari said, “After talking with party leaders, I have taken a decision to file a PIL in the High Court against SPs and ICs who have framed our party workers in false cases across the state soon after the Assembly election result was announced on 2 May. Our party leaders are collecting certified copies of all the cases framed against our party workers. For each case, the functions of SP, IC and IO should be probed and this investigation should be carried out by the CBI.”

Mr Adhikari came to Krishnagar today to meet a party leader, Manik Sarkar, who is now in jail custody at Krishnagar district correctional home and to submit a memorandum before the SP, Krishnagar police district regarding the false cases framed against the party workers.

He, however, could not meet Sarkar as the jailor of the Krishnagar district correctional home did not give permission to him.

Mr Adhikari also could not meet Ms Ishani Paul, SP, Krishngar police district as she was not in her office. Even Additional SP was in Tehatta. “Our party leaders tried to contact them, but SP told them that she was in Malda. Even Additional SP replied that he was in Tehatta. Basically, they avoided me because they didn’t want to face the issue which I raised,” Mr Adhikari told the Press.

Disappointed on the attitude shown by the state government officials, Mr Adhikari said, “They are basically cowards.”

He, however, warned that he would meet the SP again for the next time when the pandemic situation will be over. But that time he would come along with thousands of party workers.

“I know how to lead a mass movement. I also know how to stop framing party leaders and workers under false cases,” Mr Adhikari said.

Mr Adhikari was accompanied by seven MLAs and the party’s state vice-president Jayprakash Majumdar.
