#SupremeCourt to hear an application by state of West Bengal contending that UPSC has neither jurisdiction nor the expertise to consider and appoint the director-general of police (DGP) of a state as the same is not in line with the federal System of governance @MamataOfficial

You can reach #Kolkata #International #Airport or #Bagdogra international airport in #Bengal.
Kolkata being a much bigger one, communication wise it's easier.
Kolkata Bagdogra flights R regular.
At Bagdogra airport,U hire an innova or Ertiga from #Government of #WestBengal (1/n)
It's cheaper and secure.
Ask the driver to go through #Pankhabari road,not through #hillcart road or #Rohini.

I spoke to a young girl today, who was gang raped by TMC workers. She says she was targeted because she was a Hindu woman and because she worked for BJP. She is still being hounded and threatened to take her complaint back #WestBengal #PostPollViolence +
After a 1.5 hour conversation with her, I was left numb and nauseous. There are several like her who aren’t speaking up. Brutalised by TMC workers. She is a brave girl because she says she won’t take her complaint back even if it means death for her +
I will be uploading some snippets of our conversation today, and her entire story tomorrow. She was gang-raped with her father watching on gun point. She is fighting for justice, bravely, against all odds. She has a message for PM Modi too.

Bench says NHRC was asked to submit report and should confine to it.

"You (NHRC) should not tell how to go forward based in report. That is for petitioner and State to argue."
