Mamata Banerjee chose to do nothing
Amit also wrote that the crime “should have ‘broken’ Mamata Banerjee’s heart and she, instead of merely outraging, could have acted, since she is also the Home Minister of Bengal…”. He continued and said that Mamata Banerjee chose to do nothing. He mentioned how she did not even “condemn the barbarity or express pain and anguish because it would have exposed her own failing as a Chief Minister.” Meanwhile, reports suggest that the women were beaten on suspicion of theft.
