#Kolkata: A few days ago, the Union Home Ministry issued guidelines to increase the power of BSF in West Bengal, Assam and Punjab. Bengali actress and director Aparna Sen (Aparna Sen on BSF | BJP) was vocal against this directive of Modi government. The BJP has warned to file a case against Aparna Sen for this. BJP leader Anirban Ganguly’s lawyer (Aparna Sen on BSF | BJP) sent a letter to Aparna Sen on Thursday demanding an unconditional apology. He has been warned that a case will be filed against him if he does not apologize. (Aparna Sen on BSF | BJP)
Aparna Sen raised the question of increasing the power of BSF in Bengal at a program at Kolkata Press Club last Monday. Allegedly, he also raised questions about the work of BSF. BJP leader Anirban alleged that Aparna had insulted the BSF as a murderer and rapist. A letter was sent to Aparna Sen on Thursday in the wake of his remarks. The letter, addressed to BJP leader Anirban Gangopadhyay’s lawyer Prithvijay Das, said legal action would be taken against Aparna Sen if he did not seek an unconditional apology within the next seven days for his comments on the BSF.
What exactly did Aparna say on Monday? He alleged that the center was trying to impose military rule. The army is being given more power than it is supposed to. Aparna Sen complained, “The power of the military is being increased a lot. In this situation, when I think of the residents of the enclave, I get nervous. ‘ Aparna further complained, “If the BSF’s area is increased now, then their condition will become more miserable. The state government has to look after the people in the border areas so that they can trade, cultivate and eat.
