Mamata Banerjee hands over land documents to Amartya Sen, says unauthorised occupation claim baseless
The CM also announced that the Nobel laureate would be accorded ‘Z+ category’ security in future.
“Allegations of land grabbing against him (Amartya Sen) are baseless. It is an attempt to malign his reputation. No one has the right to insult him. We won’t tolerate it,” Banerjee said as the economist sat next to her.
“I respect Visva-Bharati, but condemn the attempts being made to saffronise the hallowed institution,” she said.
Visva-Bharati, in a missive last week, asked Sen to immediately hand over parts of a plot he was allegedly occupying in an “unauthorised manner” at Santiniketan.
