KolkaChief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday dared Kamtapuri Liberation Organisation to “kill her” and warned the separatist group to stop violence against innocent people in the state.

Condemning the death of six persons in a bomb blast, allegedly the handiwork of KLO, in Jalpaiguri in December last year, Banerjee said “I don’t know what do they get by killing innocent people. If they want to kill me, they can do it hundred times.

“I would like to tell them that they can’t usher in violent activities on the basis of language and some demands. You won’t achieve anything by violent means. This path had been taken to extort money,” the Chief Minister said.

“There are some people who don’t follow rules and regulations and the Constitution. They think everything can be achieved through violence. It is a wrong path. Our state has taken various measures for the development of the state, specially North Bengal,” Banerjee said while addressing the inauguration of a mini-secretariat ‘Uttar Kanya’ in North Bengal.

The Chief Minister Monday distributed cheques and job letters to the family members of the blast victims.
