BJP, Congress question Mamata Banerjee government over KK’s demise in Kolkata, demands probe, Trinamool Congress asks not to politicise singer’s death

BJP’s Samik Bhattacharya and Congress’ Adhir Ranjan Chawdhury demanded a probe into the death of singer KK claiming security lapses and missmanagement in the arrangement of concert in Kolkata

A political war of words have been started between the opposition and the rulling Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal over the shocking demise of popular 90’s singer KK who had died last night during a live performance in a concert in Kolkata.

Targeting the Bengal administration over poor arrangements at the venue where KK was performing last night, the BJP claimed that the ruling Trinamool Congress government’s mismanagement was behind the singer’s sudden demise. The Congress also questioned the security arrangement provided by the Bengal’s Trinamool Congress and demanded a probe into sudden death of KK.

Demanding an impartial probe into the death of KK, Bengal BJP spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya blamed the Trinamool administration for a complete lapse in security arrangements for KK’s concert in Kolkata. Around 7,000 people were reportedly present at the venue of the programme where the seating capacity was around 3,000 people, he told the ANI reporter.

Congress’ Bengal president and the party’s Lok Sabha leader, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury also demanded a probe into the case saying the prevailing ambience of the Najrul Mancha during his performance reveals many unsavoury questions including critical mismanagement of the live concert which might have been triggered his death, he said.

Hitting back at the BJP, the ruling Trinamool Congress called it unfortunate to politicise the singer’s death. His death is really unfortunate and the party is really sad about it but what the BJP is doing is not at all expected, the Trinamool’s staate general secretary Kunal Ghosh said.

Slamming the BJP’s vulture politics for trying to politicise an unfortunate incident, Ghosh said the saffron camp should stop its vulture brand of politics. They should stop politicising death, he said.

A report claimed Krishnakumar Kunnath aka KK returned to his hotel feeling uneasy after he performed at a Gurudas College concert at Nazrul Mancha in South Kolkata,

Mamata Banerjee slams BJP over Mahua Moitra expulsion from Lok Sabha says betrayal of  parliamentary democracy

The West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress boss said she felt sad to see the attitude of the BJP. She said the BJP did not allow Mahua Moitra to explain her stand.



West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday slammed the BJP over Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from the Lok Sabha after a debate on the cash-for-query allegations. She said the move was unacceptable and betrayed India’s parliamentary democracy.

Talking to the media, Banerjee said she felt sad to see the attitude of the BJP. She questioned how the BJP can betray parliamentary democracy. She said the BJP did not even allow Mahua to explain her stand in the House. She added full injustice had been done to the expelled MP.

Banerjee said the Trinamool Congress stands in full support of Moitra. She said the BJP could not defeat the Trinamool in elections, so they have resorted to vendetta politics. She said Moitra will return to Parliament with a bigger mandate. Banerjee said the BJP thought it can do whatever it wants as they have a brute majority. She added that a day will come when the BJP will not be in power.

After her expulsion from the Lok Sabha, Moitra told reporters outside Parliament that said will fight it out over the next 30 years inside and outside Parliament, inside the gutter and on the streets. She accused the BJP of hating Muslims and women. She claimed Adani was buying all of India’s ports and airports. She said Adani shareholders are foreign investors and the Home Ministry was giving them clearance to buy India’s infrastructure.

Reacting to her expulsion, Moitra said there was no evidence of any cash, any gifts anywhere. She said she had been expelled for sharing her Lok Sabha portal login. She said there are no rules governing the sharing of logins. She said tomorrow the CBI will be sent to her house and she is going to be harassed for the next six months.

Many Opposition parties have supported Moitra over the way she was expelled without getting a chance to put forth her stand.
