Krishnagar/Ranaghat (WB):  West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today accused Narendra Modi of inciting violence in Assam and demanded his arrest for allegedly trying to instigate caste-based violence in West Bengal.

"He wants to cause caste-based violence. We are telling the Election Commission that he should be arrested and should not be allowed to campaign in the state," Banerjee said at an election rally here in Krishnagar.

"We will keep everyone close to our hearts - Hindus, Muslims, Bengalis and non-Bengalis. Let him touch a single one of them. We will rock Delhi," she said while accusing the BJP of trying to spread the seeds of communalism.

Without naming Modi, she said "Those who cause riots cannot become the leader of the nation. It is because of their comments that innocent minorities are being butchered in Assam. Those who will lead the country if they themselves ignite riots, then what will happen to the nation".

In a Facebook post also, the TMC supremo said certain comments of some political parties including the aspirant of the high office (PM post) are adding fuel.

The West Bengal said she had never seen politics at such a low, while addressing a poll rally in Nadia district, where election would be held in the last phase on April 12.

"If a party can go to this extent without being in power, it will definitely burn the country if it comes to power," she said alluding to the BJP.

At a rally in Serampore recently, Modi had threatened to deport Bangladeshi immigrants if NDA came to power, saying they were being welcomed in West Bengal with red carpets for vote bank politics. .
