Mamata Banerjee tries to scuttle Freedom of Press, sends notice to Republic over Kolkata showdown coverage

Republic TV has alleged that the Mamata Banerjee led West Bengal has now threatened them with a notice after they had reported on the recent CBI vs Kolkata police fiasco

The West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who had sat on dharna claiming to protect the constitutional values of the country has now ironically sent a notice to English news channel Republic TV and its Hindi sister channel Republic Bharat over their relentless coverage of Kolkata showdown. Banerjee had sat on a dharna after the CBI officials reached the Kolkata Police Commissioner’s residence to probe the Saradha Chit Fund scam. Pushing her weight behind the Kolkata police chief, Mamata, along with various police officers sat on a dharna.

According to Republic TV, the media group alleged that the Mamata Banerjee led West Bengal Government has now threatened them with a notice after they had reported on the recent CBI vs Kolkata police fiasco where eight CBI officers were arrested by the Kolkata police on the orders of the Mamata Banerjee. The CBI officials had visited Kolkata to interrogate the Kolkata Police chief Rajeev Kumar to obtain crucial information regarding the massive Saradha scam, which allegedly involves senior functionaries of ruling Trinamool Congress.

However, Arnab Goswami, the Editor-in-Chief of the Republic TV has said that he was ready to be arrested by the Mamata Banerjee government for their reportage on the incident. The media organisation has also stated that they stand by their reportage and will not be threatened by such intimidations by the West Bengal government.
