Is Mamta Banerjee running the state or dramatizing…- Sukant Majumdar

Form B is being snatched from the hands of our workers… The Election Commission and the district administration are sitting silently.
Majumdar further said, “If such an attack happens on a Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, then we can say what is the law and order situation of West Bengal. Is Mamta Banerjee running the state or is she doing drama?
