Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Wednesday said it will act against its MP Idris Ali who accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of having links with terrorists who attacked the Pathankot air base.
“I feel Modi has links with terrorists. Why did the attack happen right after his visit to Pakistan?” Ali asked at a public meeting in his constituency on Tuesday. He said it was his personal opinion.
Condemning Ali’s comments, the Trinamool promised to take action against him.
“The comments are very unhealthy and crass, and the party doesn’t endorse such views. He has been asked to explain in writing. The party will take appropriate action,” Trinamool spokesperson Derek O’Brien said.
The Lok Sabha member from Basirhat in North 24 Parganas district also threatened to chop off the limbs of CPI-M leader and former West Bengal minister Gautam Deb.
Retaliating to Deb’s comments that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee deserves to be jailed, video grabs quoted him as saying: “I will break his back and chop off his limbs and throw him into jail.”
