The Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Babul Supriyo, took a dig at Mamata Banerjee for painting Alipore jail in blue and White. He said that the West Bengal Chief Minister has painted the jail to host the entire TMC leadership. He called her party out by saying that the TMC leadership is going to land behind bars very soon for their crimes. Supriyo also accused Mamata Banerjee of using police to keep her hold over the state.  

Babul Supriyo’s Accusations 

The Union Minister in a statement revealed “I was travelling through the Alipore area. Ironically, Didi has painted the Alipore prison in blue and white as she has a fondness of painting everything in her party's colour. We are suspecting that she has premonition that Alipore prison is going to be the official Karyalaya (party office) of TMC. They all are going to shift in prison.” 

The BJP and TMC have been in a continuous tussle to secure the state of West Bengal for themselves. The tussle, time and again, has also led to erupting political violence in West Bengal, especially during Lok Sabha polls.

He said, "Of late, Banerjee is on the mode to confess all crimes she had committed against humanity. She is talking of cut money and about the super emergency she has imposed in Bengal. We have faced her tyranny where opposition members got killed. She has even robbed youngsters of their right to protest.” Mamata Banerjee's original tweet took a dig at the Central government.

Babul Supriyo alleges Banerjee for obstructing CBI’s investigation 

On February 3, a CBI team had reached the former Kolkata Police Commissioner Kumar's residence to question him. The team was detained and taken to a police station, however, they were released later. The WB CM Mamata Banerjee had also visited the officer’s residence, following which she sat on a dharna. Babul Supriyo called out TMC and Mamata Banerjee for this and said, "She sat on dharna for the officer when all that CBI wanted was to summon Rajiv Kumar in a case. She lost her dignity and degraded CM's position by sitting on dharna outside tainted Rajiv Kumar's house. Going by the buzz on social media, people are saying that TMC has made arrangements for hiding Kumar."
