Kolkata: Senior BJP leader Mukul Roy on Wednesday accused the Mamata Banerjee government of entrusting the intelligence branch (IB) of the West Bengal police to implicate 20 party leaders, including four Lok Sabha MPs and a Rajya Sabha MP in false cases.

He also showed a document which he claimed to be an IB circular issued to all superintendents of police across the districts already.


Lashing out at the chief minister, Mr Roy alleged that the list includes four Lok Sabha MPs: state BJP president Dilip Ghosh, Union minister Babul Supriyo, Arjun Singh and Locket Chatterjee and Rajya Sabha parliamentarian Roopa Ganguly.

Among others, he complained that his name and the names of senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya, party’s national general secretary Rahul Sinha, state BJP vice-president Joy Prakash Majumdar, three state BJP general secretaries: Sayantan Basu, Raju Banerjee and Pratap Banerjee and party leader Bharati Ghosh were mentioned in the list.

“The IB has issued a fresh circular to frame these 20 leaders in false cases. The circular was issued on Tuesday. This reflects how the state government is hatching a conspiracy, failing to tackle the BJP,” Mr Roy said.


The IB circular speaks of an order to register the complaints and respective cases, which surfaced after Febraury 19 this year, against the 20 BJP leaders at different police stations in the state.

It has directed the police  to send the video clippings, if available, of those BJP leaders in respect of the complaints and cases through WhatsApp, according to sources adding that the IB’s focus is mainly on the provocative and hate speeches made at different rallies before the Lok Sabha election.  

Countering Ms Banerjee’s Martyrs’ Day rally which is held on July 21 every year in the city, he later informed that the BJP would also organise a rally in memory of the party workers who were allegedly killed by the Trinamul miscreants.


Mr Roy also indicated that BJP president Amit Shah, who is also the Union home minister, may attend the rally although the date and venue of the event is yet to be decided.
