Lok sabha disrupted over army deployment in bengal

Her Trinamool Congress has joined other opposition parties in disrupting parliament, while the Chief Minister has led protests on the streets traveling from city to city accusing the government of punishing the poor with its notes ban, which has led to a massive cash crunch.

"They told Parliament that the State Government's permission was taken". Mamata refused to leave Nabanna, saying that she will be protecting democracy.

Following are the four letters as taken from TOI. "It is quite unusual that the CM is not aware about it even as the district magistrate and state administration has proper knowledge about the same", BJP leader Rahul Sinha told ANI. Army officials said that the exercise would continue till Friday midnight.

"We have never seen such arrogance (by the Centre)".

An IndiGo flight carrying Banerjee and other passengers from Patna to Kolkata had to hover in the sky for over half an hour over Kolkata due to technical reasons before landing at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport.

Hysteria gripped West Bengal yesterday night after chief minister Mamata Banerjee decided not to go home and instead stayed put at the state secretariat Nabanna to protest against the "sudden deployment" of the army in the area. Speculation of army taking over toll plaza incorrect.

The CM earlier raised that the state administration was not informed about the whole process.

"Second, the military is checking vehicles there (WB)". He also doubted that some kind of emergency is going to be proclaimed in the state. "But this act clearly violates our jurisdiction", she said.

"The salaried class people are not getting their own money from banks for their livelihood", she said.

Past 2 a.m., Banerjee - holding her third media conference since evening - stuck to her decision to spend the night there, arguing that the army may return. The home secretary has written to the Centre to withdraw the Army from the districts. They will definitely come back.

Talking to reporters outside Parliament, the Information and Broadcasting minister said, "This is nothing but a cheap political stunt to defame the government and dragging the Army into an unnecessary controversy where none exists. He must realize that we are also ready for war", Mamata Di said angrily.

"Why is it been done in Bengal?" She asked the government "Has Emergency been imposed in the country without declaration?" "This is not a matter of concern for one state government or one party, but for the entire country", he said, seeking a clarification from the government, and also a statement on the issue from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Soon after Banerjee's allegations, the spokesman said the routine exercise was being carried out in all states of the eastern region.
