Hyderabad, Dec 1 (Hydnow): Kolkata Police on Friday issued summons to 12 BJP MLAs for questioning in connection with complaints filed against them for disrespecting the national Anthem within the state Assembly premises.
The MLAs have been asked to be present at the city police’s headquarters at Lalbazar central Kolkata on December 4. However, it is yet to be clear whether the BJP leaders will go to the city police headquarters on December 4 to honour the notice.
Confirming the receipt of the notice, BJP legislator from Siliguri in Darjeeling district Shankar Ghosh said that any decision in the matter will be taken by the BJP’s legislative party in West Bengal after discussing the matter with the leader of the opposition in the state Assembly, seven Adhikari.
“This is a deliberate attempt by the ruling Trinamool Congress in connivance with city police, ” Ghosh said. The leader of the opposition has claimed that he is considering moving the court in this country and discussing with his legal team in the matter.
Meanwhile, Trinamool congress has hinted that they might bring a motion on the floor of the Assembly during the ongoing winter session of the House to condemn the insult of the National Anthem by the BJP legislators.
On Thursday, an FIER was filed against the 12 BJP legislators at Hare Street Police Station in Central Kolkata following a complaint by three Trinamool Congress legislators on this count.
The complaint was that the BJP leader started shouting “thieves, thieves” slogans within the state Assembly premises, when the ruling Trinamool congress activists were singing the national Anthem on Wednesday. (Hydnow)
