SILIGURI : West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Sunday termed the killing of four Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers by Central forces in Cooch Behar during the fourth phase of polling on Saturday “genocide”. She also called the Prime Minister and Home Minister of the country “incompetent”.
Addressing the mediapersons, the West Bengal CM alleged, “It is genocide. We have decided to observe today as a black day. The forces fired on them directly. The CISF is trained to provide security to industries and not to control a mob. I could not sleep last night but the Prime Minister was eating sweets. Such an incompetent government, incompetent Prime Minister, incompetent Home Minister.” “I could not meet the families. I will meet them on April 14. I cannot be stopped. I respect the Election Commission. But they are changing the rules. This is now the BJP Code of Conduct. The system cannot be changed with the interest of a party. The institution will continue forever and the system is to be maintained. Everybody wants a free and fair election,” added the TMC chief. The Chief Minister had said that she will hold a protest rally in Cooch Behar on Sunday against the firing incident and visit the homes of the deceased.
