Alleging that the Union government was using central agencies to interfering into state affairs, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said that the BJP-led dispensation was bulldozing the federal structure of the country.

She stated that central agencies should be given autonomy” to protect democracy.

"The BJP-led central government is using the central agencies to interfere in the state’s affairs. It is bulldozing the federal structure of the country. There is Tughlaqi rule in force,” she said.
