West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is fearing for her life, implying BJP, but Arjun Singh, BJP MP from Barrackpore, says she would be worried on the count of her nephew Abhishek Banerjee if that’s what she is afraid of.
"BJP does not want West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to be murdered by her nephew Abhishek Banerjee so that he gains sympathy from people to get power," Arjun Singh said during a press conference in North 24 Paraganas.
"If Mamata Banerjee is apprehensive of being murdered, she must write a letter to the Prime Minister and get Central agency security cover. We do not want her nephew to have her murdered to get sympathy from the people of Bengal," news agency ANI quoted him as saying.
This BJP MP’s remarks came as West Bengal's Vidhan Sabha polls are slated to take place in April-May for 294 seats. The dates for the polls are not announced yet.
