Following are the reports from news agencies:

"With no Trinamool Congress member present in the Lok Sabha, Acharia turned the debate into a Mamata-bashing exercise finding fault in her various actions since she came to power last year.

Initiating a discussion on effective steps to curb rising incidents of violation of human rights in the country, the CPM leader hit out at the West Bengal chief minister, without naming her, for arresting a farmer for questioning her at a public rally on rise in fertiliser prices.

Acharia said the chief minister dubbed the farmer as a Maoist and immediately got him arrested.

He pointed out that the Press Council of India chairman Markandeya Katju had described the chief minister as “dictatorial, intolerant and whimsical”.

Maintaining that the right to expression was a fundamental right, Acharia said this was a violation of human rights.

He also recounted the incident where in a Jadavpur University professor was arrested for circulating a cartoon.

Acharia said when the professor was manhandled by “TMC hoodlums”, the police picked him up and not the miscreant.

He pointed out that the State Human Rights Commission had made certain observations against the incident."
