Setback to Mamata Banerjee, TMC leader Arabul Islam arrested

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Jan 17: In a major setback to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal police on Thursday, Jan 17 arrested her party leader Arabul Islam who has been accused of mastering an attack on former CPI(M) minister Abdur Rezzak Mollah in South 24 Parganas district on Jan 6.

Following an official complaint filed by the CPI(M) leader, police took the Trinamool Congress leader into their custody from Paroma Island on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass.

A group of people, allegedly led by Islam, had attacked Mollah who later was rushed to a hospital in Kolkata.

Taking revenge on the Trinamool Congress leader, CPI(M) workers later allegedly had attacked Islam firing at his vehicle and attacked him at Bamanghata in the district.

Islam was admitted to a private hospital in Rajarhat on Jan 8. In a virtual indictment of the state government, West Bengal Governor MK Narayanan had said that goondaism was taking place in the state.

According to critics, Mamata Banerjee, who toppled a 34-year-long regime in May 2011, has completely failed to give any direction to Bengal. She has only achieved to put in place a government, which is overseen by hooligans and milked by opportunists for their own benefits. There is no vision or direction for the welfare of the struggling state.
