Kolkata: With Assembly elections in West Bengal just four months away, the mood is heightened in the corridors of power in Kolkata. The ruling Trinamool Congress, in wake of a resurgent Bharatiya Janata Party, is leaving no stone unturned to take the fight to the rival’s camp.
In line with its persistent run-ins with the BJP-ruled central government, the TMC on Thursday dared the Centre to impose President’s Rule in the state, and said that the state government will not release three Indian Police Service officers on central deputation following the diktat from the Centre.
Senior TMC leader and state Rural Development Minister Subrata Mukherjee said that the Centre’s order in this regard is “unconstitutional and unacceptable”.
“We will not send them on deputation. At most, the Centre can impose Presidents Rule. We welcome that. If the Centre has the power to do that, let it go ahead,” he said during a press conference.
The three IPS officers of the West Bengal cadre who were in-charge of the security of BJP national president JP NAdda during his recent visit to the state have been called to serve in central deputation just days after the Nadda’s convoy was attacked by miscreants on the way to Diamond Harbour on December 10.
Rajib Mishra (ADG, South Bengal), Praveen Tripathi (DIG, Presidency Range) and Bholanath Pandey (SP, Diamond Harbour) have been sent on deputation to Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Seema Suraksha Bal and Police Research Bureau, respectively.
“This is unconstitutional and unacceptable. We will not allow interference by the Centre,” Mukherjee said.
He alleged that the Centre is trying to misuse provisions of the IPS Cadre Rule of 1954 in order to destroy the federal structure of the country, news agency PTI reported.
Mukherjee added that the central government is also trying to demotivate the police force of the state.
