Summary of the press conference addressed by Mamata Banerjee at 3.30 pm
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee addressed a press conference at 3.30 pm today on the Darjeeling and Basirhat incidents, and on the non-cooperation by the Centre.
Here are the main points:
- We will conduct a judicial enquiry into the Basirhat incident. Action will be taken for spreading fake pictures and videos. The law will take its own course.
- I congratulate the people of Bengal for not getting trapped by those spreading rumours and communal hatred. Peace has been restored.
- The Central Government is showing total non-cooperation in the Hills. I am open to talks with all. Reject violence and restore peace in Darjeeling.
- There is ‘Fakebook’ happening in the name of Facebook. I respect Facebook but not ‘Fakebook’.
