Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has written a letter to Mamata Banerjee, and expressed his pain by the Chief Minister's allegations on the army's presence at toll booths in Bengal and said that he didn't expect it from "someone of your standing and experience".

"Your allegations run the risk of adversely impacting the moral of the country's armed forces and the same were not expected from a person of your standing and experience in public life," Mr Parrikar wrote in his letter.

"If only you had inquired with the concerned agencies of the state government, you would have come to know of the extensive correspondence between the army and the state agencies including the joint inspection of the sites carried out by them."

Parrikar said, "Political parties and the politicians may have the luxury of making wild and unsubstantiated allegations against each other, but one needs to be extremely careful while referring to armed forces."

TMC leader Sukhendu Shekhar said, "We have all respect for Indian Army. We have also submitted the detail on how Army was depolyed. What the Defense Minister has written is totally rubbish."
