Kolkata: Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah of trying to project themselves as “patriots” while treating others as “foreigners” in wake of the deadly terror attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir last week.

Lashing out at the BJP-led NDA regime at the Centre she blamed them of trying to launch a “shadow war” ahead of the Lok Sabha Elections. Addressing a press meet at Nabanna, the state secretariat, the Trinamul Congress supremo questioned the timing of the attack before the polls. She also wondered why no steps were taken to foil the terror strike despite having intelligence inputs.

 

Ms Banerjee not only claimed her cell phone was being tapped but also endorsed a recent US intelligence report which predicted of violence ahead of the polls while referring to the alleged violence by the BJP and its affiliate organisations including RSS on the people in the wake of the terror strike.

Ms Banerjee said, “So many jawans were killed. Weakness, negligence and callousness are behind their killings.”
