Left Front chairman Biman Bose alleged that Trinamool Congress of having a nexus with the fundamentalists on the backdrop of the Burdwan blast.
“Trinamool Congress is promoting soft communalism keeping vote share in mind. This is a very dangerous political trend, which Bengal has never experienced in the past. Trinamool’s ideologue is masked with soft communalism,” Bose said at a press conference on Sunday.
Swamy slammed the state police. “The police promptly destroyed all the documents before central investigators (NIA, IB and other central agencies) could arrive,” he wrote.
Congress leader Pradip Bhattacharjee’s said,“It has been established that the party has links with the underworld. This is not the first time that such an incident has taken place in state. How many searches have been initiated by the state government?
