BJP’s West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh on Thursday demanded a CBI probe into the alleged attack on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying that it needs to be seen whether the incident was a “well-scripted drama” to garner votes. “It needs to be probed what actually happened. How come a Z-plus protectee gets attacked is a matter that has to be looked into. The state should order a CBI probe to bring out the truth,” he said.

However, Congress state unit chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury accused her of resorting to ‘nautanki’ (theatrics) while its deputy leader in the Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma expressed concern over the alleged attack and stated that hatred and violence were unacceptable in a democracy. The West Bengal Congress chief Chowdhury claimed that the Chief Minister was
indulging in hypocrisy to gain sympathy.
If there is a conspiracy, call CBI, NIA, CID or form an SIT. Why don’t you (Mamata Banerjee) do it? Making an excuse of conspiracy, you want to get public sympathy. Where were the police, CCTV?
