Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met the families of eight people killed in violence in Birbhum district this week and announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh each. She announced an additional ₹50,000 for families who lost children - two of the eight who died were children - and said an additional ₹2 lakh would be given to each household to rebuild the houses that were burnt in the incident. He said that one member of each family would also get a job.
The chief minister - facing targets from opposition BJP and Congress and demands for resignation - also said that strict action would be taken against senior police officers in the area. "There is a big conspiracy. The police will conduct a fair investigation. Take strict action," he said.
He also announced a special statewide drive to recover illegal arms and ammunition.


The Bengal government is also installing CCTV cameras in the area as per the order of the Calcutta High Court on March 23, news agency ANI reported.


Eight people were killed when several houses caught fire in Rampurhat in the early hours of Tuesday. This happened after the killing of Bhadu Sheikh, a resident of Bogtui village, and a local Trinamool leader. Residents said the violence was possibly a result of an old rivalry between two factions of the Trinamool Congress.
The police have arrested 23 people so far; One of those arrested was in connection with the bomb attack in which Sheikh was killed, while the rest were arrested in connection with the fire and death. Police said two cases have been registered and a special team is investigating.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his condolences to the deceased and assured the state's support from the Centre. However, the prime minister's tweet was a spectacle in the constant war of words between the BJP and the Trinamool; He said he hoped that 'stern action against the guilty... (and) those encouraging such criminals should also not be forgiven'.
Violence and deaths have sparked a political blame game in the state, with the opposition BJP demanding the chief minister's resignation and imposition of President's rule. Hitting back at a government program in the capital yesterday, Banerjee said, "We are running the government. Why do we want murder, bloodshed and bomb blasts? Such things are not in power to harass the government and defame us."
He also indicated the hand of an opposition party behind the gruesome incidents.
"I will go there tomorrow (March 24). I planned to go there today (March 23). I was ready. But some political parties are going there and eating sweets. I don't want to go there when they (opposition parties) ) ) there. I don't want to fight with them unnecessarily," she said.
A delegation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by the Leader of the Opposition (and once a confidant of Mamata Banerjee) Suvendu Adhikari visited the area yesterday. He has demanded a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation or the National Investigation Agency.
Congress state president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has written a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind demanding imposition of President's rule. The state unit of BJP has also made a similar demand.
