Mamata Banerjee, Bengal CM, Centre, Delhi violence

Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has slammed Centre over Delhi violence alleging that it was state-sponsored.

Almost a week after Delhi violence, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday alleged that it was "state-sponsored genocide" and the BJP was trying to replicate the "Gujarat model of riots" across the country.

Addressing a TMC event, Banerjee also condemned those who raised the controversial "goli maro..." slogan while heading to Home Minister Amit Shah's rally in the city on Sunday.

"I am deeply pained by the killing of innocent people in Delhi. I think it was genocide... the violence in Delhi was state-sponsored," she said.

Banerjee claimed it was due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that "so many people were killed" in the Delhi violence. "Amit Shah should keep this in mind".

She said the BJP should apologise for the Delhi riots.

"The BJP is trying to replicate the Gujarat model of riots across India, including in West Bengal," the chief minister added.
