Glaring rise in disorder under Mamata regime: Rights panel chief

Kolkata, Aug 22 : In yet another scathing attack on West Bengal's Mamata Banerjee government, state human rights panel chief Asok Kumar Ganguly Thursday contended there was "glaring increase in disorder" under the regime.

"There is a change in the regime but we cannot see any change in people's life. The only glaring change is the rise in disorder," Ganguly, a former Supreme Court judge, said at an event here.

He also said there has been increase in instances where police have actually "shielded culprits instead of preventing crimes".

Observing that crime against women has been rising, Ganguly said the only way to fight the menace was to raise the voice of protest.

"Wherever there are atrocities against women, people will have to raise their voice. May we have a Kamduni in every nook and corner," said Ganguly referring to the hitherto nondescript village in North 24 Parganas district where people rose in unison demanding death penalty for the perpetrators of a brutal gangrape and murder of a teen.

Ganguly, who as the commission chief, passed several orders against the Banerjee government, Monday too had derided the new regime.

"There has been no change in governance in the real sense. Political ineffectiveness, nepotism, corruption, police inaction and use of muscle power in elections the change is only in the dress," Ganguly had said.

Irked by the rights panel's several orders against it, the Banerjee government earlier had sought clarifications about Ganguly trip to Pakistan in June earlier this year.
