Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday slammed union home minister Rajnath Singh after the latter met GJM general secretary Roshan Giri.
Mamata said that Rajnath should not have met Giri as a lookout notice was issued against him.
Criticising Singh, Banerjee asserted,”I know that a lookout notice was issued against him (Roshan Giri). When a lookout notice is there, then generally it (meeting the person against whom it has been issued) should not be done.” “The post of the home minister is a constitutional post. They are doing what they consider is right. But if I was in their place, I would not have done so,” she told journalists.
The BJP’s state unit president Dilip Ghosh hit right back, questioning how expelled GJM leader Binay Tamang, who has several cases pending against him, met Banerjee.
