 Left Front chairman and veteran CPM leader Biman Bose on Wednesday said his party and the Left Front support chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s stand against the increase of the BSF’s ambit in Bengal.

Bose spoke on the issue at Dhanyasara village of Bolpur on Wednesday evening where he came to meet the family members of Manasa Hansda, the party’s district committee secretary who died recently.

“There will be a crisis in people’s livelihoods in bordering areas if the BSF’s jurisdiction is increased from 15km to 50km (inside Indian territory). Mamata is right in this matter. We supported her...,” said Bose.

“At present, those living within the (existing) 15km jurisdiction of the BSF face several troubles. They need to take permission to cultivate their own land. If the jurisdiction goes up to 50km, the district headquarters of Nadia, Krishnagar, will come under its control. This can’t be accepted,” he added.

Mamata met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday and demanded the decision to increase the BSF’s jurisdiction be withdrawn.

“There are many places on the border where there is no barbed fencing. What will happen by increasing the area of jurisdiction of BSF?” said Bose.

But the CPM veteran lashed out at the Trinamul chief for another reason. “The more Mamata attempts to pulverise  the Left, she ends up helping Modi. On this issue, she gets the full support of Modi,” said Bose.
