“Since they listen to her and unfailingly vote for her, West Bengal Chief Minister & Home-Police Minister Mamata Banerjee should be able to identify and arrest these rioters and pelters who vandalised and set fire to the BJP office in Howrah rural dist this afternoon. Why is she silent?” Anirban Ganguly tweeted.
