Criticising West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her opposition to linking Aadhaar with mobile phone numbers, the state BJP chief said it will “expose the corruption” of her party men.
While interacting with the reporters, state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said, “Mamata Banerjee is against linking of Aadhaar with mobile numbers because doing so will expose the corruption of her party men and supporters.”
Earlier in the day, the chief minister had said that Centre was interfering with the people’s rights and privacy by asking them to link their Aadhaar with mobile numbers, and that she will not do the same even if her connection was snapped.
When asked about Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) councillor Barun Bhujel’s death at the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata, Ghosh alleged that he was not given proper treatment by the doctors.
“Even his (Bhujel) family members were not allowed to meet him. Democracy does not exist in TMC’s rule in West Bengal,” the BJP chief said.
Superintendent of Police, Kalimpong, Ajit Yadav said that Bhujel was arrested on June 16 for his alleged involvement in arson and violence in the hills.
