“It’s Not Known How She Got It,” Says Amit Shah On Mamata Banerjee’s Injury

“I pray you (Mamata Banerjee) get well soon but it would be nice if you also thought about my workers who have died in the violence,” Amit Shah said.

Campaigning for his party in West Bengal for upcoming assembly elections, Home Minister Amit Shah, responded for the first time to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s allegations of an attack in Nandigram that left her with injuries and her leg in a cast. The BJP leader reminded Ms Banerjee of the political violence in the state and the BJP’s allegations of its workers being attacked or killed.

At a rally in Bankura, Mr Shah said: “Mamata-ji has a leg injury, it’s not known how she got it. Trinamool Congress calls it a conspiracy, but Election Commission says it was an accident. Didi, you’re roaming around in a wheelchair, concerned about your leg, but not the pain of mothers of my 130 workers who were killed.”

Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee has been attending rallies in a wheelchair since her discharge from hospital last week, two days after she alleged that her leg was crushed when she was greeting people from an SUV she was traveling in after filing her nomination papers from Nandigram. The Bengal Chief Minister had alleged that it was a conspiracy before she was taken to Kolkata and admitted to a hospital.

“I pray you (Mamata Banerjee) get well soon but it would be nice if you also thought about my workers who have died in the violence,” Amit Shah said.

Mamata Banerjee, while addressing a rally at the same time in Purulia, said she was injured in an incident and “some” thought she would be unable to step out with a broken leg.

“It’s my good luck that I survived. I have a plaster and I cannot walk… The pain of the people is greater than my pain,” she declared.

The Election Commission yesterday ruled out an attack and said that it was an accident in which she was injured. The Commission said security was “not properly handled” and the Chief Minister’s security protocol was breached.
