"West Bengal is in a state of Emergency" - Hemanta Sarma after BJP's worker Priyanka Sharma's arrest

Hemanta Biswas Sarma has strongly condemned the arrest of BJP's worker Priyanka Sharma. Hemanta said "In India, a person can give critical views about PM, but this is for the first time that for sharing a post against the CM, a young girl has been put in jail. Is it a crime? People will presume that West Bengal is in a state of emergency if these things happen. Even Indira Gandhi wouldn't put anybody behind the bars for writing against her on social media." For sharing a transformed picture of West Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee, Priyanka Sharma was arrested on Friday and sent to 14-days police custody.
