Kolkata: Alleging that the Union government was using central agencies to interfere in state affairs, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said that the BJP-led dispensation was bulldozing the country’s federal structure.
Banerjee, addressing a press meeting here, claimed that the “saffron party rule was worse than that of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin or Benito Mussolini”.
She stated that central agencies “should be given autonomy” to protect democracy.
“The BJP-led central government is using the central agencies to interfere in the state’s affairs. It is bulldozing the federal structure of the country. There is Tughlaqi rule in force,” she said.
“The agencies must be granted autonomy and allowed to work impartially without any political interference,” the CM added.
