There has been a magnanimous outrage among the TMC workers over the incident. “Why did the Centre Armed Police Forces fire? Where do they get this audacity of firing on common voters? This is the main question. This is a part of a conspiracy and we do not think that PM is out of this conspiracy. This is an effort to intimidate voters”, said TMC’s Saugata Roy.


She added, “Our leader Mamata Banerjee will visit the houses of all those who were killed today”.

The TMC MP further said, “The firing took place because common people were resisting the effort by BJP hooligans to disrupt the voting. They are being encouraged by Central Armed Police Force and we feel this is a conspiracy headed by Home Minister, we are demanding his resignation”.

Again, Roy added, “Our party workers will hold protest in every block and ward of West Bengal over the firing in Cooch Behar,” as quoted by ANI.

As per the reports of PTI, Mamata Banerjee had demanded Union Home Minister’s resignation over firing at Sitalkuchi, Cooch Behar.

Well, Prime Minister Modi, addressing a rally in Bengal, said, “Saddened by the incident in Cooch Behar. My condolences are with their families. I request the Election Commission to take strict action against the ones who are the culprits”.
