KOLKATA: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday broke her silence on the Tablighi Jamaat front, while trying to set the record straight following the dissemination of “misinformation” targeting a community.
“An epidemic is an epidemic. It doesn’t make any difference between caste, creed and religion. There is no point finding out if the affected is a Hindu or a Muslim,” Banerjee said. She took a dig at those trying to point a finger at the Bengal government. “The MEA and MHA keep track of foreigners coming to India, not the states,” she said.
