The Trinamool Congress has once again come under fire after a senior party leader said that CPI-M women wing leaders have often torn their blouses and accused others of molestation.
"We say that a police officer arrests his own son for a promotion. Similarly, we know many women's wing leaders of CPI-M who used to tear their own blouse and accuse others of molestation," NDTV quoted TMC leader Debnath as saying at a rally in West Bengal's Burdwan district.
He claimed that the Communist Party (Marxist) frame TMC leaders even if they are assaulted by their husbands.
"If they have a fight with their husband at home and are attacked, they will frame a Trinamool person for it," Debnath added.
Demanding explanation from West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Left said that her party is defending the culprits instead of arresting them.
"This shows the depth to which the Trinamool has fallen. Instead of arresting the culprits, they defend them. This is what he trains people in his party to do. Why is the Chief Minister silent?," CPM policy making committee's member Brinda Karat said.
