The happenings in Bengal are a part of the unrelenting attack on India’s institutions by Mr Modi & the BJP.
The entire opposition will stand together & defeat these fascist forces.
Among the leaders from the opposition parties who supported Banerjee was National Conference’s, Omar Abdullah. He also took to Twitter and expressed his support to her.
Just spoke to @MamataOfficial didi to convey the support of @JKNC_ as she sits in dharna. The use of the CBI as a political tool has crossed all limits as has the Modi government’s misuse of institutions. A former CM having such little regard for India’s federalism is shocking— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 3, 2019
On the other side, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed Centre ruling party and said that ‘Modi-Shah duo’s action is completely bizarre and anti-democracy’.
The BJP wants to stay in power by hook or by crook. They are so scared of losing that CBI is being used as election agents— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) February 3, 2019
This is undemocratic and against spirit of the constitution. We demand due process be followed so that CBI is not used as a tool of political interference.
Spoke to Mamta didi and expressed solidarity. Modi-Shah duo’s action is completely bizarre and anti-democracy— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) February 3, 2019
Spoke to respected @MamataOfficial ji. Extended RJD’s support, BJP has not only venomous & nefarious agenda against opposition leaders but Indian Administrative Service & Police Officers. Might visit Kolkata tomorrow— Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) February 3, 2019
