Babul Supriyo criticises Mamata Banerjee for accusing Centre of Tapas Pal’s death

Bharatiya Janata Party’s Union minister of state Babul Supriyo on Wednesday criticised West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for accusing the Centre for mentally pressurising her partymen through central investigating agency in probes relating to various financial scams.
Banerjee said she was upset about the way Tapas Pal – actor and former MP of her party – was mentally pressured due to the probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation. Pal (61), passed away in Mumbai on Tuesday morning. He suffered a cardiac arrest.
Supriyo claimed that Pal remained mentally pressurised because of the “questionable” political activities of his own party, the Trinamool Congress. “Tapas Pal, who was a simple person by nature could not cope with the activities of his party,” alleged Supriyo. He also said that it was possible “only for someone like Mamata Banerjee” to bring politics in the issue and accuse the Centre of practising “discriminatory policies” towards her partymen.
He alleged that Banerjee didn’t visit Tapas Pal while he was admitted in the same hospital along with Trinamool MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay in Odisha’s Bhubaneshwar when both of them had been arrested.
Congress MP Pradip Bhattacharya too criticised Banerjee for her comments and said it was “unfortunate”.
