“There is no political violence in West Bengal. Political violence is a BJP gimmick”: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee

News Desk: A day after Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad slammed Twitter for not complying with the country’s new IT rules, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said the Central government is trying to bulldoze Twitter as it can’t control the microblogging platform anymore in the country.

“Unfortunately, they can’t control Twitter that’s why they want to bulldoze them. Similarly, they can’t control me that is why they are trying to bulldoze my government in West Bengal. They should stop this,” chief minister Mamata Banerjee said in a press conference.

Talking about the Centre assistance for the state after cyclone Yaas, the chief minister said that the Centre has not granted any financial help to the state after the cyclone.

“There is no political violence in West Bengal. We condemn violence. Political violence is a BJP gimmick. They should have gone to UP where the dead bodies are floating,” she added.
