Mamata Banerjee says encounters in UP have become “normal,” and she encourages people to resist

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee addresses a press conference in Nabanna, Howrah, on Monday, April 17, 2023.

Chief Minister Banerjee strongly criticised the Yogi Adityanath government and stated that the people of Uttar Pradesh are against police checks in the state.

Atiq Ahmad, a gangster turned politician, and his brother Ashraf were shot dead on Saturday. This event prompted Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of West Bengal, to step up her criticism of the Yogi Adityanath government. Banerjee called on the residents of UP to hold demonstrations against these encounters.

CM Banerjee criticised the central administration for sending federal authorities when something happens in West Bengal. On Sunday, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader criticised the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh for the poor law and order situation. The leader expressed concern over the “complete breakdown” of law and order in the state.

Encounters have become commonplace for people in Uttar Pradesh. UP Residents should demonstrate against these clashes. They (the BJP) send government agencies when something happens in West Bengal. At a press conference at party headquarters, the chief minister said, “The BJP is a double engine—a double standard.

It is worrisome that criminals are now enforcing the law on their own without bothering about the presence of police or media in Uttar Pradesh. The blatant chaos and complete breakdown of law and order in this state fascinate me. She had tweeted that such illegal actions have no place in our constitutional democracy.

On Saturday night, three men shot Atiq Ahmad and Ashraf in Prayagraj, just days after the politician-turned-gangster’s son was killed in an alleged meeting. Atif and Ashraf were on their way to a medical examination when they were brutally murdered at close range at 10 p.m. Three men posing as journalists perpetrated the crime in full view of the media. The shooting took place on the day Atiq Ahmad’s son Asad was laid to rest after being shot by police in Uttar Pradesh.
