After the suspension of Trinamool Congress leader Shahjahan Shiekh for 6 years by the TMC, Union Minister Giriraj Singh launched a scathing attack on West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, saying that she has set a standard for appeasement.

He said that Mamata Banerjee is saving people like Shahjahan and allowing such people to play with the dignity of Hindu women.

"Mamata Banerjee saved Shahjahan in such a manner that no sections of women harassment have been registered against him. You have set a standard of appeasement. You took a long time to arrest him. For votes and appeasement, you are saving people like Shahjahan and allowing such people to play with the dignity of Hindu women," said Union Minister Giriraj Singh.

Earlier also, Singh lashed at Mamata Banerjee and said that he had never seen such a 'ruthless' Chief Minister and alleged that accused Shahjahan was safeguarded by the state government.

"I have never seen such a ruthless CM like Mamata Banerjee. A man who is a rapist, a man who exploited women, was safeguarded by the TMC government just to secure minority votes," Singh said while speaking to ANI.

Close to two months after Sheikh Shahjahan was reported untraceable in the wake of the attack on an ED team, which was on its way to raid his residence in the North 24 Parganas in connection with the alleged ration scam, the TMC strongman, who is also alleged by the women of Sandeshkhali to have perpetrated grave atrocities along with his henchmen, was arrested by West Bengal police on Thursday morning.

His close aide, Aamir Ali Gazi, was also arrested by West Bengal Police from Jharkhand.

West Bengal's Basirhat Court remanded Trinamool Congress (TMC) Sheikh Shahjahan to 10-day police custody on Thursday and on the same day, Trinamool Congress suspended him from the party for six years.

TMC leader Derek O'Brien held a press conference here today and said that by the time West Bengal Police was given freedom, it took two days to arrest the culprit. (ANI)
