KEJRIWAL DETENTION UNACCEPTABLE: MAMATA

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday termed as "unacceptable" the detention of her Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal for trying to meet the family of a retired soldier who committed suicide. "What's happening? Unprecedented. A CM is detained in his own state. He cannot move about freely. Unacceptable," she tweeted.

The Trinamool Congress leader had earlier described as "unfortunate" the police decision to stop Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. "They should be allowed. Our representative is on his way to Delhi," she said.

She termed the suicide of ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal over the OROP scheme as "sad". Trinamool's Rajya Sabha MP and chief national spokesperson Derek O'Brien is to meet the deceased's family. "They should have allowed them. On Mamata Banerjee's instructions, and on behalf of the Trinamool, I am going to meet them to extend our solidarity and respect," O'Brien said.
