Kolkata, May 6: A four-member team of the Home Ministry today arrived in West Bengal to take stock of post-election violence.
According to reports, the Central team held a meeting with senior officials of state government. The members are likely to visit violence-affected areas.
The development comes a day after Mamata Banerjee was sworn in as the Chief Minister of the State for the third consecutive term. Soon after being sworn in, Ms. Banerjee urged all political parties to refrain from violence.
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) leadership said that instead of sending teams, the Union government should send vaccines.
“The Centre should not send teams but instead send vaccines,” senior party leader Firhad Hakim said.
