TMC warns Idris Ali after MP claims PM Modi has links with Pathankot terrorists

Trinamool Congress leader Idris Ali is once again in the news for making a controversial statement. Just a few days after being pulled up for stating that Bengal will burn if Mamata Banerjee was arrested by the CBI in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam, Ali, a member of Parliament, has gone a step further.

He has now alleged that the attack on the Air Force base in Pathankot occurred because Prime Minister Narendra Modi has connections with terrorists.

“I feel that PM Modi has links with terrorists which is why Pathankot attack took place. Why did the Pathankot attack happen right after PM's visit to Pakistan? This is my personal opinion,” ANI quoted him as saying.

TMC wasted no time in distancing themselves from Ali’s statements. IBN Live reported that the party issued a statement saying, "Seen the footage of Idris Ali's comments. They are crass and unhealthy. The party doesn't endorse such views. He has been asked to explain in writing."

TMC spokesperson Derek O’Brien insisted to ANI that Ali’s comments are “certainly not the view of the party.” He also added that once Ali replies to their request to explain himself, the party will consider taking action against him.

Meanwhile, Times Now reported that Ali has refused to apologise for his remarks.
