Mamata condemns raids on Dainik Bhaskar Group of Newspapers

Kolkata : West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday condemned the raids on the Dainik Bhaskar group of newspapers at multiple locations in the country by the IT department and said it was an attempt to stifle democracy.

Reports said the Income Tax department was carrying out raids on the group at multiple locations, including in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Gujarat.

” The attack on journalists & media houses is yet another brutal attempt to stifle democracy. Dainik Bhaskar bravely reported the way @narendramodi ji mishandled the entire COVID crisis and led the country to its most horrifying days amid a raging pandemic,” Ms Banerjee, who is also the chairperson of All India Trinamool Congress said in her twitter handle.

” I strongly condemn this vindictive act that aims to suppress voices that bring out the TRUTH. It’s a grave violation that undermines the very principles of democracy. Urging everyone in the Media to stay strong. Together we shall never let the autocratic forces succeed,” chief minister added.
