"Mamata Banerjee should publicly apologise, or at least do it in Facebook, for opposing an NIA probe into the blast. She should apologise before the people of Bengal since opposing NIA investigation has delayed the matter," Sinha said.

He also lashed out at the erstwhile CPI(M) regime for going slow on anti-India activities in Bengal.
