Editorial Viewpoints

  • Were the security forces sleeping while such large amount of explosives were getting smuggled ?
  • TMC ruled Bengal has become a factory to manufacture explosives. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who plays the politics of Muslim appeasement, is responsible for this !
  • Bengal has become the hub of Jihadi activities in turn a threat to the national security. This situation compels President’s Rule in the State.
