Mamata will not bow to ‘expansionist’ forces: Mamata
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that the Government of India’s order to summon three serving IPS officers from West Bengal, despite state objections, was a gross abuse of power under the emergency provision of the IPS Cadre Rules 1954. He said the state government would never bow to expansionist and democratic forces.
The TMC president said the act was nothing more than a deliberate exercise to encircle the state’s jurisdiction and to discourage officers on duty in West Bengal. The move is against the basic tenets of the federal constitution, especially before the election. This is unconstitutional and completely unacceptable!
The Chief Minister further said that we will not allow this attempt by the Center to control the state machinery through proxies! West Bengal is not going to bow to the expansionist and democratic forces.
