NEW DELHI: Sharply reacting to the claims of the Trinamool Congress that there was an attempt of “coup” against the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, the BJP on Friday stated that she had begun “hallucinating” after the November 8 decision on demonetization turned “illegally acquired wealth” worthless.

The BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh, who is also party’s co-incharge of West Bengal, termed the allegations of the TMC “lowest of the low”. Singh stated that “no politician with a sane mind could level such allegations against the Armed forces”.     

"The decision on demonetization has unnerved and rattled Banerjee. She has lost crores of unaccounted money amassed through chit fund companies and illegal activities of syndicates patronized by her party,” said Singh in a statement issued on a day when the TMC MPs paralyzed both the Houses of Parliament.

The BJP leader rued that the Army had to clarify on its already scheduled exercise in the eastern parts of the country with the cooperation of the police in the states. "BJP condemns the accusation of the TMC of army planning a coup in West Bengal. If Banerjee wishes to be the cheerleader of the anti-demonetisation campaign, holding street protests and theatrics we have no issues. However, it will be highly deplorable if she drags Army into her theatrics,” said Singh.
