"Rakesh Singh was seen making bad gestures to Trinamool party workers. He is a convict. Question is why was a criminal there in Nadda's convoy? Nadda broke the law and the letter sent is unconstitutional. We vehemently protest such unconstitutional acts and roaming around with criminals," Banerjee said.

"They have to answer why so many cars and bikes were present in the convoy. Three cases have been registered. One against Rakesh Singh and two others for vandalism. Seven people have been arrested already. No incident took place in diamond harbour," Banerjee said.

    Calling the Union Home Ministry's move to summon the state chief secretary and the DGP "interference in the federal structure", the TMC MP said, "What the Centre is doing by sending a letter to the West Bengal government is unconstitutional."

    "State government is accountable to answer to the state Assembly. No other person can call for any explanation in respect of law and order situation, especially the central government. This is a violation of the Constitution. This is colourable exercise of power," Banerjee, as quoted by ANI.

    Banerjee went on to accuse the central government of having "malice" and called the state's Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, a "conduit pipe of the BJP".
