After a brief silence over the Teen Kanya issue, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has finally decided to comment on social-networking site Facebook. Her latest post blames a section of the media along with the Opposition and CPM and former ally Congress for making these "non-issues" into issues to "malign the present government with disinformation, misinformation and concocted stories".
"I will give you an example of how such concocted stories, in which the government has no role to play, are being spread with ulterior motive. It has been reported that government has banned one particular film from public viewing. That the government has never interfered in this issue was clearly indicated by the State Home Secretary. You all are, perhaps, aware that the same film is being shown in many places in Kolkata and throughout the state like Priya, Prachi, Darpana, Purabi, Jaya, Ashoka, Malancha, Mahua, Inox (City Centre, Swabhumi), Cinemax (Manisquare) and Fame (South City, Hiland Park) in Kolkata; and elsewhere ....If the government is determined to ban the film, how is it possible that it is being shown at all these places? Obviously, the answer is that it is a well-designed campaign against the government to embarrass and humiliate it," she said. She appealed to the public "not to trust and believe any such disinformation and misinformation campaign against the government, without knowing its full details".
