TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee released from detention


Tuesday during their protest demanding the release of MGNREGA funding, the TMC detained about 30 leaders, according to the Delhi Police.Abhishek Banerjee, the general secretary of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), declared that today is a “black day for Indian democracy” after he and other TMC leaders, including Derek O’Brien and Mahua Moitra, were freed by the police on intervention night on Tuesday and Wednesday, almost three hours after they had been detained during a sit-in at Krishi Bhawan in Delhi.

After his brief imprisonment, Banerjee spoke to the media and stated, “You (BJP) are ripping away the rights of the people of West Bengal since you lost in the state. The BJP has stopped accepting donations from the public because it has lost every election in West Bengal.The TMC leader has called for a “Raj Bhavan Abhiyan” campaign against the atrocity in Kolkata on Thursday. “Will hold a rally at Raj Bhavan on October 5 at 3 p.m. called the ‘Raj Bhavan Abhiyan’ against police abuse. Will also meet with the Governor and present him with the 50 lakh letters, said Banerjee.

Banerjee charged that the Delhi Police “dragged and manhandled” the MPs and MLAs, including women, and that the incident would serve as an illustration of the ‘New India’ because journalists who questioned the government were charged with violating the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).The way Delhi Police officers conducted themselves today… MPs were dragged out by their hair. A million people vote to choose an MP. Zamindar of the BJP in Raj Bhavan is nominated. People would respond to it, he continued, referring to how Mahua Moitra and Dola Sen were grabbed by their hands and legs and hauled into police trucks.
