New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her government of misusing the state machinery to intimidate BJP leaders and workers.

Expressing concern over the increasing political violence in the state, Singh said in a series of tweets:
