West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, addressing a rally on women’s rights in Kolkata ahead of International Women’s Day, accused the BJP of spreading rumors about recent incidents in Sandeshkhali. Emphasizing West Bengal as the safest place for women in the country, Banerjee criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for endorsing the state’s safety record.

In her address, Banerjee alleged a double standard, claiming that the BJP remains silent when women face atrocities in states under its rule. She specifically targeted Abhijit Gangopadhyay, a former Calcutta High Court judge who recently joined the BJP.

Asserting her stance against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Banerjee declared that her government would not allow their implementation in West Bengal. The Chief Minister’s statements come amidst heightened political tensions, as she defends the state’s reputation for women’s safety while challenging the BJP’s influence.
