New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh accused West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and her govt of misusing the state machinery to intimidate BJP leaders and workers. The reaction came a day after the Kolkata Police registered a FIR against BJP President Amit Shah in connection with the violence during his roadshow on Tuesday.
