Mamata Banerjee gets off car twice after people chant Jai Shri Ram


May 30, 2019

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday in North 24 Parganas had to get off her car and confront people who chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram’.

Mamata Banerjee’s motorcade was passing through the troubled Bhatpara area of North 24 Parganas district.

Mamata Banerjee said that the people chanting the Jai Shri Ram slogans were Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) people and “outsiders”.

“These are all outsiders and BJP people. They are criminals and were abusing me. They are not from Bengal,” Mamata Banerjee told ANI.

Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee was on her way to Naihati to participate in a sit-in against violence on her party workers after the Lok Sabha poll results.

In a video, which has gone viral on the social media, some men are seen chanting Jai Shri Ram as Banerjee’s motorcade was passing through the Bhatpara area, a scene of violence between the BJP and the TMC since the declaration of the poll results.

The area is the stronghold of the newly-elected BJP MP Arjun Singh, who had defected to the saffron party from the TMC weeks before the Lok Sabha election. Singh defeated TMC’s Dinesh Trivedi in the polls.

An infuriated Mamata Banerjee came out of her car and asked her security officials to note down the names of the men.

“What do you think of yourself? You will come from other states, stay here and abuse us? I will not tolerate this. How dare you all abuse me? All of your names and details will be noted down,”Mamata Banerjee was heard saying.

After the chief minister got into her car, the men chanted Jai Shri Ram again, prompting her to disembark from the vehicle once more.

Later, addressing the protest programme at Naihati, Mamata Banerjee said some BJP workers came in front of her car and abused her verbally.

“Is this democracy?,” Mamata Naerjee asked.

The incident brought back memories of a similar one earlier this month near Chandrakona in West Midnapore district. A video had surfaced during the Lok Sabha poll campaign, showing Mamata Banerjee losing her temper as some men chanted Jai Shri Ram when her motorcade was passing through the area.

In that video, which too had gone viral on the social media, Mamata Banerjee was seen angrily coming out of her car and saying that the men were mouthing abuses.

” People of India have the right to freedom of speech and practicing religion of their choice. The Mamata Govt has been ruthless to Hindus and is terming them criminals. No ruling party has the right to stop people from practicing their faith. These circumstances are indicating that the ruling party is a monarchy and the government elected by the people is not working for the people. “– Editor , Vedic Upasana Peeth
