Motion in Bengal Assembly on "hyperactive" central agencies

Motion in Bengal Assembly on hyperactive central agencies

Kolkata: The West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress decided to move a motion in the assembly against the central agencies, such as CBI and Enforcement Directorate, being "hyperactive'" in the state, IANS reported.

On September 14, a short session of the assembly will be held, and the motion will be moved. A proposal for the motion has already been submitted to the assembly, Assembly Speaker Biman Bandopadhyay informed.

The Speaker said, "There will be a discussion in which members of both the treasury benches and the opposition will participate. An atmosphere of tension and fear is being created in the state. The central agencies' officials are reaching the residences of people at odd hours. There will be discussions on this matter."

A working committee meeting of the assembly on Monday decided to make the motion. The meeting was attended by several ministers and MLAs of the ruling party, besides the Speaker and the deputy speaker, Asish Bandopadhyay.

But all BJP MLAs., who are the members of the working committee, boycotted the meeting.

Shortly after the meeting, parliamentary affairs and agriculture minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay said the motion would be tabled on September 19.

He came down on the opposition members in the working committee for being absent from the meeting. "We, too, had been on the opposition benches for a long time. There had been differences with the then Speaker of the assembly, but despite that, we attended the meetings convened by the Speaker. There are some practices in the democratic system which we should not ignore," he said.

However, the state BJP has not reacted to the motion so far.
