A conversation between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool president of Kochbihar Parthapratim Roy went viral shortly after the shooting deaths of four people. It is alleged that the BJP’s IT cell leaked the audio. The audio has added a new dimension to the Shitalkuchi incident. This time the Delhi Election Department asked the State Election Commission about the audio recording. Delhi authorities want a report on the matter from state election official Ariz Aftab on Tuesday morning. A report has been asked to be sent by Thursday. An audio tape leaked by the BJP has heard Mamata Banerjee talking to district Trinamool president Parthapratim Roy. He was heard to say that the bodies should not be handed over to relatives. The Chief Minister himself will go there and meet the family members of the victims. The Chief Minister also directed the local grassroots leaders and workers to remain calm. The BJP alleges that Mamata Banerjee is doing ‘corpse politics’. The political circles of the state are fighting over this.
