Union Minister Smriti Irani launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, leveling serious allegations against the TMC government regarding unjustified violence. Irani expressed concern over reports of Trinamool Congress (TMC) members allegedly kidnapping girls and subjecting them to torture. She questioned Banerjee's silence on the matter, particularly given her status as a woman Chief Minister. Irani demanded accountability, asking, "Where is Sheikh Shahjahan, why is the Mamata government not arresting him?"
The accusations by Irani have intensified political tensions, with her questioning the actions of the TMC government in response to reported violence. The Union Minister's remarks highlight growing concerns over law and order in West Bengal and raise questions about the effectiveness of the state administration in addressing such allegations.
