Mamata Slams Centre For Infiltration


West Bengal chief minister and Trinamul Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee lashed on centre for infiltration through the porous barbed wire fencing along the Indo-Bangladesh border in West Bengal and other parts. Speaking to part workers in Kalyani she alleged in connection with the Burdwan blast that many areas of the border is still unfenced through which miscreants have been sneaking into the Indian territory with ulterior motives. She said, patrolling the border and fecning it as well as the duty and responsibility of the centre, which is not doing it properly. She said: "The centre blame us for incident like Khagragarh blash but not doing its duty seriously. Responsibility of guarding the border and even around 5 km area beyond rests with the centre, not of the state police. If you keep the border unfenced, it is quite natural that the miscreants would try to sneak with subversive motive. But, is it our fault, why you did not put the fencing properly in all the stretches of the border?". The chief minister, nevertheless, asked partymen to be alert and inform police if they found any one with suspicious identity. "Please do inform the police immediately if you witnessed any such people", she said. Picture by PRANAB DEBNATH.
