Communal violence in WB; Centre rushes paramilitary troops

"Jis prakar Kashmir se Hinduo ko bhagaya gaya usi prakar Bengal se Hinduo ko bhaga ke Bangladesh jaisa rajya ye log bana denge (the way Hindus were asked t leave Kashmir, they will be made to do the same in Bengal and it will be converted into a state like Bangladesh)", he added.

The action by the state government came in the wake of mounting pressure from the opposition parties for stern action against accused persons of the communal violence that left several injured, shops vandalised and houses burnt.

Violence erupted between two communities at Baduria on July 3 night over a Facebook post by a youth. "Centre has a non-cooperative attitude, border areas are being disturbed with foreign hands having good relations with BJP", she claimed in a press conference on Saturday in Kolkata. "I respect Facebook but not "Fakebook", she said. We want to see who were involved in them and the government will provide every input to the judicial commission.

Ms Banerjee said, " We will conduct a judicial enquiry on the Basirhat incident.

Speaking about the Gorkhaland agitations in Darjeeling, Banerjee attempted to appease the protesters. "Let there be an impartial probe", she said. They also used Bhojpuri clippings and showed it as if they were from Bengal.

Continuing her tirade against the Centre, Banerjee alleged the BJP was trying to stoke unrest wherever it was (politically) weak. "We are MPs and only we three will go there. They could have gone there as well".

The State Government has temporarily suspended internet services in four police station areas of Basirhat, Baduria, Swarupnagar and Deganga to check the spread of rumours through social networking sites.

She went on to say that this would not stop her and that she will keep her resistance up. The TMC leaders said that once these regulations were kept under a scanner, the skeletons would start emerging.

She also said her government would take action against "two national-level television channels" for showing "fake" videos and claiming them to be related to the clashes.
