Mr Rajnath Singh, Malda violence is your creation: Derek O’Brien

KOLKATA(PTI): Trinamool Congress on Thursday hitback Union Home minister Rajnath Singh for his attack on Mamata Banerjee government saying the Malda (violence) incident was his party’s creation and he should not be on a mission to stoke communal tension.

“Mr Rajnath Singh, Malda is your creation. As the Home Minister of the country you should not be on a mission to stoke communal tension,” TMC national spokesperson Derek O’Brien said in a statement after Singh’s strong criticism of TMC government.

Singh on Thursday attacked Trinamool Congress government on the issue of law and order saying that women, people and even policemen are not secure here.

“You are using a political meeting to threaten the state. Which home minister with a conscience would do that?” he said.
“The country knows this is a well known tactic BJP uses when elections are at hand. And all this coming from a central government which is running the nation using ‘agencies’ to pursue its own cynical agenda,” he added.
