Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday came out to support Mamata Banerjee saying that the central government is targeting her because she “dared” to speak against demonetisation.
Urging Mamata Banerjee to continue with the fight, Kejriwal asserted that the entire nation was with her and the centre was only intimidating her because of her views on demonestion.

This comes even after the army furnished all the documents that went on to refute Mamata’s Banerjee’s claims and prove that the army did inform the West Bengal police and the state government before carrying out the routine exercises.
Just a day after claiming a threat to her life, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday alleged that the Central government had deployed army on toll plazas in the state without the permission of the state government.
Terming it as a very “sensitive” matter, Mamata Banerjee asked the centre if it was “military coup”. West Bengal’s Didi also went on to stay at the secretariat overnight claiming to “guard” the state’s “democracy”. She also refused to leave the office till the army moves across the state.
Even after the army claimed that it was just a routine exercise, the West Bengal Chief Minister, however, lashed out at the army saying that they are “misleading” facts.
