Sandeshkhali ‘mistruth’ spread by BJP using money: Mamata


Share post:


BOLPUR, (WB) May 5: Alleging that “mistruth” about Sandeshkhali was spread by the BJP using money, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stop “shedding crocodile tears” as the “conspiracy hatched by the saffron party” has come to the fore with the unravelling of a recent sting.
The TMC on Saturday released a video on social media, in which a man, who claimed to be a BJP mandal president in Sandeshkhali, was heard saying that leader of the opposition in the West Bengal assembly, Suvendu Adhikari, was behind the “whole conspiracy”.
In the purported video, the authenticity of which could not be independently verified by PTI, the man was heard saying that Adhikari had asked him and other BJP leaders of the area to “instigate three-four local women to level allegations of rape against three TMC leaders, including Shajahan Sheikh”.
Addressing an election rally in Bolpur in support of TMC candidate and sitting Bolpur MP Asit Kumar Mal and Birbhum TMC nominee and sitting MP Satabdi Roy, Banerjee said, “Blatant lies were invented by the BJP, which plotted a conspiracy by giving money to some people to tell lies.” “Did anyone ever imagine that BJP would stoop so low that it would spread canards on Sandeshkhali? Don’t dishonour the mothers of West Bengal by leveling such heinous allegations. Don’t dare try to disrespect women of the state by offering them money to level false allegations against our party,” Banerjee said. (PTI)
