Didi's instigation caused Cooch Behar firing: PM Modi

IndiaTimes Monday, 12 April 2021
PM Narendra Modi iterated on Monday that Saturday's CISF firing at Sitalkuchi in north Bengal's Cooch Behar, which led to four deaths, would not have happened without CM Mamata Banerjee’s alleged instigation. He said Mamata was "not talking sense (abol-tabol bolchhen)" as she knew she had been "clean bowled" in Nandigram and BJP had already crossed the 100-seat mark, with four phases of polls still to go.

Watch: Mamata's alleged call on Bengal firing leaked by BJP, complaint to EC

BJP released a purported audio clip of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee speaking to Sitalkuchi nominee. BJP claimed that Mamata proposed a rally with bodies of Cooch Behar firing victims. A BJP delegation urged Bengal Chief Electoral Officer Ariz Aftab to take note of the clip. BJP claimed such a move could lead to untoward situations in the state amid ongoing polls. Meanwhile, TMC has described the audio clip as 'bogus' and said no such conversation took place. Violence marred a Cooch Behar polling booth during the fourth round of voting on April 10. Four persons died near a booth in Sitalkuchi constituency of Cooch Behar district. Reports suggest central forces opened fire allegedly after coming under attack from locals. Incident took place after locals allegedly attempted to snatch rifles of central forces. Watch the full video for more details.

'Won't stage dharna': Dilip Ghosh reacts to campaign ban over Sitalkuchi remarks

Election Commission imposed a 24-hour campaign ban on Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh. The ban has been imposed over his 'there will be Sitalkuchi in several places' remarks. Commission 'sternly' warned Ghosh and advised him to desist from using such statements. Four people died in a firing incident by CISF in Sitalkuchi during the fourth phase of polls. Officials had said the jawans opened fire after they came under attack from locals. The campaign ban on Ghosh will be in effect from 7 pm April 15 to 7 pm April 16. Reacting to EC's order, Ghosh said he will not stage dharna unlike CM Mamata Banerjee. Earlier, Ghosh was also sent notice by EC for his alleged remarks over the Sitalkuchi incident. Poll campaign has seen EC clamping down on several leaders for objectionable utterances. EC earlier barred Mamata from campaigning for 24 hours for remarks against central forces.

Watch: Purported video of Sitalkuchi firing goes viral, TMC calls it 'genocide'

A purported video from Sitalkuchi in Bengal's Cooch Behar is doing rounds on social media. Four villagers had died in the area in an altercation with CRPF jawans during the fourth phase of polling. Ruling TMC said video vindicates its position that there was no provocation for CRPF to fire. TMC MP and spokesperson Derek O'Brien went on to dub it as cold-blooded genocide. The video shows many locals gathered in a field, while some are seen wielding sticks. In the viral video, some central force jawans can also be seen. Soon firing can be heard, though it is not clear who fired the shot. Video shows a ruckus erupt in the area after the shots are fired. Earlier, Cooch Behar SP had said there was rumour that police opened fire. Debasish Dhar had added that the rumour led locals to come out in large numbers. The SP had said that this led the Central forces to open fire in self defence.
