The decision to not let the three-member BJP team go there was a "text book example" of Banerjee's vote bank politics, BJP national secretary Sidharth Nath Singh alleged, claiming that the "dictatorial" state government had compassion for criminals but it showed guns to nationalists.
Rejecting the government's explanation for the violence in Malda district on January 3, he said, the purpose behind it was to destroy the records, which were allegedly related to a fake currency racket, kept in a police station.
"We will meet the Home Minister to seek an appropriate enquiry and also meet the President due to the seriousness of the situation," Singh cited in a press conference here.
