People died in Cooch Behar because CM Mamata instigated them: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah blamed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for violence that happened during fourth phase of polls in Cooch Behar's Sitalkuchi. The violent incident had claimed lives of four people. "Didi is abusing BJP unnecessarily. You're mistaken that BJP is contesting against you. It is the mothers, sisters of North Bengal, Rajbongshi community, the Gorkha community, the tea workers, the farmers who are contesting against you," said Amit Shah. He further said, "The 4th phase polls were held in North Bengal. Didi instigated people, told them to gherao CRPF and loot them. People listened to her, weapons were snatched, bullets were fired, four people died. Didi had you not instigated them they wouldn't have died. A fifth person also died. A youth, Anand Burman had gone to cast his vote but TMC goons shot him dead. Didi is speaking about the 4 but nothing on Anand Burman. Why? It's because he belonged to Rajbongshi community that is not a part of her vote bank." Eight-phase Bengal elections will conclude on April 29.
