Kolkata: The Bhowanipore police station controversy surrounding West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee seems yet far from over.

A day after the state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party submitted memorandum to Governor MK Narayanan seeking his intervention in checking the worsening condition of law and order in the state, the Left Front has also come down heavily against the Chief Minister’s role in the entire episode.

Condemning the Sunday’s incident, where the CM went to the police station to get two party members freed from police custody, the Left Front Chairman Biman Bose alleged that she behaved like a student leader in the entire episode and the action is unfortunate.

“She should behave like a Chief Minister and not a student leader. This is not a good sign for the democratic system of the state,” Bose said, while talking to media persons here on Wednesday.

“As the head of the state, she has the power to visit any police station. But visiting a police station for such purposes is really unfortunate for the state,” he added.

The Bhowanipore police had arrested two people who were associated with the CM and her party. The two had been arrested for clashing with policemen and thereafter attacking the police station.

According to the police, they had requested the participants of an immersion procession not to burst high decibel crackers near a hospital premises.

Miffed over the issue, the group of people attacked the cops and the police station.
