BJP leader Saumitra  Khan hits on West Bengal CM

BJP leader Saumitra Khan hit out at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over her letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to intervene and withdraw the Centre’s move to extend the jurisdiction of the Border Security Force (BSF) to a 50 km belt along the International Border in Punjab, West Bengal and Assam.

Taking a swipe at the West Bengal chief minister, Saumitra Khan called Mamata Banerjee the “political mother of all terrorists in the country”.

The BJP leader requested PM Modi not to pay heed to Mamata Banerjee, alleging that she wants to “destroy the country in the same manner she had destroyed West Bengal”, according to a report by news agency ANI.

Saumitra Khan further accused the West Bengal chief minister of attempting to turn India into a “dharmashala”.

“She is the political mother of all terrorists in the country because when the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed in Parliament, she opposed it. She opposed the National Register of Citizens (NRC) because she wants to make India a ‘dharmashala’. Is India a dharmashala that the Rohingyas would enter, kill people here and loot the money of the Indian government?” Khan asked.

Saumitra Khan claimed that “this is her politics” and accused Mamata Banerjee of trying to end the country’s integrity by supporting the Rohingyas.

“Mamata Banerjee is supporting the Rohingyas to end the integrity of the country. That is the reason she is upset because now terrorists would not be able to enter India as a result of the increase in the border jurisdiction of the BSF from 15 km to 50 km. This is why she is opposing the move as this is her politics,” Saumitra Khan was quoted as saying .

When asked about Mamata Banerjee’s decision to move a resolution in the West Bengal Assembly, the BJP leader alleged that the chief minister does not believe in the states.

“Has she ever believed in the structure of the country? She does not believe in the states. She does not follow the rules of the assembly. It has become her job to oppose the country,” Saumitra Khan

In October, the Centre extended the jurisdiction of the Border Security Force to a 50-km belt along the International Border in Punjab, West Bengal and Assam. Earlier, the BSF’s jurisdiction was a 15 km belt along the border.
