CM demands to annul the order regarding NCTC from immediate effect

The notification is a clear violation of the provisions of federal structure and an attack on the rights of States

In his letter to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh Chief Minister Narendra Modi has expressed his anger and opposed the notification issued by the Central Home ministry regarding National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC).

Stating that the notification is a clear violation of the provisions of federal structure and an attack on the rights of States, he demanded to annul the order with immediate effect.

Mr. Modi said that Home ministry of India has issued an order on February 3, 2012 (vide its office memorandum III 11011/67/05-IS.IV) to put all the intelligence agencies under NCTC. The ministry has issued the said order in the name of the provisions given under Article 73 of the constitution. The order will adversely affect the rights given to the States for the maintenance of law and order.

The notification implies that all the intelligence and probe agencies of the nation will have to carry out an assisting role to NCTC. The NCTC is also given the rights of arrest under unlawful activity (prevention Act) and of search. In fact, the constitution has put the subject of law and order in the State list and it is under State’s power to carry out probe in the matters related to law and order and police.

The implementation of this order is a clear swoop on the rights of state governments. The Central government has not even cared to discuss with the State governments before issuing such order, which is a straight violation of the federal spirit of the constitution, said Chief Minister.

There is a need to develop trust among States and to have a single strategy with political willpower to battle with the problems like terrorism and naxalism. On the contrary, this order will snatch the powers of the States given by the constitution. And so, the order should be canceled immediately and the States should be consulted first, he demanded.

In Siliguri, PM Modi says what happened in Cooch Behar is saddening, 'new low' for Didi
Mamata Didi and her goons have become jittery seeing the people’s support in favour of BJP: PM Modi
In Bengal, after we form the govt, you will be provided all benefits & schemes without cut-money: PM Modi

Addressing a massive rally ahead of fourth phase of election in West Bengal’s Siliguri, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said, “The entire North Bengal has announced that TMC government is going and BJP government is coming. Today, the entire nation is proud to see the willpower of the people of Bengal. This willpower is of the ‘Ashol Poriborton’. This willpower is the power of ‘Sonar Bangla’.”

Expressing anguish over Cooch Behar incident, PM Modi said, “What happened in Cooch Behar is very saddening. My sympathies are with the families of those who died, I condole their demise. Didi and her goons are perturbed, seeing the people's support for BJP. She has stooped to this level as she can see her chair slipping away.”

Reacting to the violence in Cooch Behar, he also said, “Didi, this violence, tactics of instigating people to attack the Security Forces, the tactics of obstructing the polling process will not protect you. This violence can't protect you from the 10 years of your ill-governance.”

Amidst the fourth phase of West Bengal Assembly polls, the Prime Minister asserted, “I saw a video on social media. In it, the tourism minister of Bengal who is close to Didi is threatening the people of the state, saying if people voted for BJP, people will be thrown out of the Bengal. Will you accept this language, such sort of threat?”

Accusing Mamata didi for not showing her 10 years report card of her governance, PM Modi remarked, “Didi's goons are not able to do 'chhappa votes' this time around and thus, Didi is angry. She never presented her report card for 10 years. She should be giving the account of her works, her nephew's works and her goons' works.”

PM Modi, who has been relentlessly campaigning in West Bengal during assembly elections, hit out at Mamata Banerjee for her government’s patronage to syndicates, tolabaazs and cut-money mafias during a rally in Siliguri.

“It's time to change the kind of political environment, that has been created in Bengal for past several decades. 'Tolabaaj mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Syndicate mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Cut money mukt' Bengal will be formed now,” he added further.

Talking about TMC leader Sujata Mondal who made disparaging comments against the Dalit community. PM Modi without taking name said, “The thinking of Didi and TMC leaders is coming out in the open. A video is going viral on social media where a leader close to Didi can be seen blatantly accusing the Scheduled Caste community of Bengal as ‘beggars by nature’.”

In Siliguri, PM Modi accuses Didi for not giving tapwater to the people of Bengal, she did not provide irrigation water in the fields. But the rivers here were handed over to the mafia. Every schemehas tolabazi, every scheme has cut-money. A few days ago in Siliguri, Didi said that her tolabaaz only take 100-500 rupees, what is the big deal in this?”

Exuding confidence of forming the BJP government in the state, the PM stated, “In Bengal, after we form the government, you will be provided all benefits and schemes without cut money. The BJP government in Bengal will work on lines of how we worked during COVID lockdown. The Central government sent thousands of crores to everyone during the lockdown. The BJP government in Bengal will work with the same transparency.”
