SPOKE UP: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday on the sidelines of national BJP Conclave at Jantar Mantar here. She requested for 500 scholarships and five acres of land to set up a CBI training school in Katihar district of Bihar.

“I’ve asked them for five acres of land, 500 scholarships for orphan students and if needed, an employment generation programme,” she said.

Mamata said she had told Modi that “Jamait Nagar terror incident is a vivid reminder of forces working against people and the country”.

With West Bengal witnessing rising crimes against minorities, BJP national president Amit Shah Sunday accused TMC leadership of “scaring minorities”.

“Mamata has been looking for an opportunity to scare minorities. She warned all Muslim leaders not to attend a function of an All India Muslim Personal Law Board delegation in Kolkata. Such instances of victimisation will not be tolerated,” Shah said addressing the party’s national executive meeting here.

He also talked about the “statements of (West Bengal Home Minister) Churchill Joe telling everyone that we are working for the protection of minorities”.

“Today, Mamata is attacking all Muslims,” Shah said, demanding some “theft” of power from Trinamool, by threatening secular people.

“TMC does not realise that you are living in a country built by Indian people… When the Mamata maulvi talks about the religion… it only reflects her own personal ideology of killing innocent people,” Shah said.
