Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) chairperson Mamata Banerjee on Monday protested against the recent attacks on the Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in a railway recruitment scam and said all central investigating bodies should be made autonomous bodies. .
“Central agencies should be given complete autonomy so that they can act impartially. The government should only pay them salaries. This should be the goal of neo-India. This autonomy alone can save India from catastrophe, ”the West Bengal Chief Minister told the media after the cabinet meeting.
Banerjee, who directed his attacks on the Center’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said that no probe agency should be in the office of the prime minister, Union home minister or any chief minister.
“The BJP has bulldozed the country’s coalition structure,” said Banerjee, who resumed his efforts to bring regional parties into a common anti-BJP platform before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
“I’m sorry to say this but Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini didn’t do it,” he joked.
Alleging that the CBI attack on the former chief minister of Bihar and the president of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) was politically motivated, Banerjee said, “As we have seen in the Lalu Prasad Yadav case, the central government is forcibly directing agencies. What’s in a hurry? Is the next election due? How many BJP leaders have been arrested?
A year after the Lok Sabha elections, the next assembly elections will be held in Bihar in 2025.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has recently filed a new case against former Bihar Chief Minister and his family members over allegations of land grabbing by persons applying for jobs in railways when Lalu Prasad Yadav was a minister during the Prime Minister-led UPA-1 government.

Shyam Rajak, National Secretary General of RJD, welcomed Banerjee’s statement. “She said the right thing,” Rajak told HT.
When Banerjee made the statement, the top leaders of the BJP in Bengaluru were not contacted as they were engaged in an internal meeting.
