"I am deeply pained by the killing of innocent people in Delhi. I think it was genocide... the violence in Delhi was state-sponsored," she said.

The TMC supremo claimed it was due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that "so many people were killed" in the Delhi violence.

"Amit Shah should keep this in mind," she said the BJP should apologise for the Delhi riots.

"The BJP is trying to replicate the Gujarat model of riots across India, including in West Bengal," the chief minister added.
