West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has slammed the Narendra Modi-led central government as she claimed that the killings of five laborers from West Bengal in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir were a pre-planned murder.

Rahul Sinha said, “Mamata has a habit of playing politics over dead bodies. Without condemning the act of terrorists she is blaming the central government. This proves who she supports. Does she support Pakistan and terrorists? This is my question to her.”


Speaking to reporters in Kolkata, the chief minister questioned the security arrangements in place in Kashmir at a time when a delegation of European Union MPs was visiting the Valley.


On Wednesday, Mamata Banerjee in a series of tweets wrote, “In a most unfortunate incident in Kashmir yesterday, five innocent laborers were brutally killed in a pre-planned manner. We are shocked! Presently there are no political activities in Kashmir and entire law and order are with the Government of India.”


She added, “We, therefore, demand a strong investigation so that the real truth comes out. We are deputing Shri. Sanjay Singh ADG South Bengal to find out details from them. Our party MPs and MLAs have reached Murshidabad to meet the family members of victims. Our government is providing Rs. 5 lakh each to the victim’s family and render all assistance to them.”
