Banerjee also took a swipe at Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy for tweeting that he was "inclined to agree" to the appeal made by retired colonel of Indian Army to "boycott everything that is Kashmiri". Referring to a Kashmiri doctor in Kolkata, who was threatened by a group of people to leave the city a day after the Pulwama attack, Banerjee said her government has taken strong action against the offenders and provided adequate security to the Kashmiris residing here.
"In Kolkata only one incident happened. But we have taken strong action. We have provided all the security. The Kashmiris are all safe here. They are happy to stay here because it is a peaceful place," she said. She also revealed that the city police has been asked to take stringent action against the "BJP hooligans" who attacked city-based civil activists for taking out an anti-war rally on Wednesday.
