During his election rally in Bengal’s Barrackpore on Sunday, the prime minister alleged that Mamata Banerjee’s party Trinamool Congress was trying to conceal its past misdeeds” in Sandeshkhali, where ruling party leaders have been accused of sexual assault and land-grabbing.

“All of us have seen what the TMC has done with the sisters and mothers of Sandeshkhali. First, the police tried to save the culprits, now the TMC has started a new game. TMC goons are threatening the sisters of Sandeshkhali, just because the oppressor’s name is Shahjahan Sheikh… They are trying their best to save and protect him from legal action. Don’t be afraid of TMC,” Modi said.
