Kolkata: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Suvendu Adhikari on Thursday visited the headquarters of the Border Security Force (BSF)’s South Bengal Frontier in Kolkata along with other 65 BJP MLAs, on Thursday. He apologised to the security force officers for the alleged derogatory language used by Trinamool Congress MLAs against the personnel.


‘Some TMC MLAs used abusive languages for BSF in the Assembly. So we have come here to apologize to BSF officers and thank them for their national service. The notification issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs on October 11 to extend the BSF jurisdiction is good news for West Bengal. The BSF always do sacrifices for the nation and protect the people’, Suvendu Adhikari was quoted by ANI. ‘We have also requested the IG to work more for the welfare of the people on the border’, he added.
