Mamata Banerjee alleges CPI(M)-Maoist conspiracy to kill her
Chandpara, West Bengal: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has alleged that the CPI(M) had joined hands with Maoists to kill her in a bid to return to power in the state. Banerjee also charged the Marxists for being hand-in-glove with the Congress and BJP in plotting against her.
"CPI(M) has joined hands with the Maoists in making a blueprint to kill me and to make room for their return to power in West Bengal which will never come off," Ms Banerjee thundered at her first panchayat poll campaign, near the border town of Bongaon in North 24-parganas district.
Unsparing in her charges against Congress and BJP, the Trinamool Congress supremo alleged that she had definite intelligence reports that a 'murder plot' was hatched during her visit to Kamduni village. "Outsiders intruded the village when I visited the residence of the girl (gangrape victim who was brutally killed on June 8) and my security staff later told me that a murder plot was hatched against me there itself, which came to be known later," she said.
Banerjee, who was peeved at angry demonstrations on Monday by some women for visiting the victim's house 10 days after the crime and not hearing them, alleged that CPI(M) organised the agitation and had a dig at two TV channels for allegedly provoking them.
