Terming as "unfortunate" the heckling of Mamata Banerjee by Left activists in New Delhi, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh today said that police failed to ensure safety of the West Bengal chief mnister.


"The incident was unfortunate and it should not have happened with her (Mamata) and that too in the Planning Commission... Delhi police are responsible for it," Digvijaya told PTI here.

Singh said Delhi police should have taken adequate steps to ensure Mamata's safety as she is Chief Minister.

The incident took place on Tuesday at Planning Commission office when Mamata was heckled by the Left-wing Student Federation of India (SFI) activists and the West Bengal finance minister Amit Mitra accompanying her was gheraoed.

On BJP Vice President Uma Bharti's remark that BJP will perform the "pind daan" (rituals after cremation) of Congress in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Digvijaya said, "She should first clarify her position in the BJP hierarchy in Madhya Pradesh".
