Taking a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister over her reaction to ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans, Union Minister Babul Supriyo said that “something was definitely not well with Didi and that the “BJP will send ‘Get Well Soon’ cards to her”.
Mamata Banerjee has quite a few times lost her cool claiming that the BJP workers were deliberately raising Lord Ram slogans to create political unrest in the state.
Reacting to her behaviour, Babul Supriyo said the CM is an experienced politician but her behaviour was “abnormal and bizarre”.
“She should keep in mind the dignity of the post she holds. She should take a break for a few days. She is rattled by BJP’s presence in Bengal,” he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
The BJP leader further accused her to be the cause for so many memes on social media adding that it was not good for anyone.
“From my constituency Asansol, we will send ‘Get Well Soon’ cards to Mamata Banerjee. Something is definitely not well with Didi, and she needs to answer that,” he said.
Days after losing her cool on BJP activists chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and front-ranking leaders of her Trinamool Congress changed their display picture on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to ‘Jay Hind, Jay Bangla on Sunday night.
Last week, Mamata lost her cool again and chased a group of youth shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in front of her convoy on way to Naihati in the North 24 Parganas district.
Banerjee, on her way to address a protest meeting against the alleged “capture” of the Naihati municipality by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was about to get into her vehicle after talking to a group of policemen when some youths started shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’.
A furious Banerjee rushed out of her vehicle twice to confront the youth, while issuing a verbal warning to them. “Come here you BJP criminals. If you have guts come in front of me,” she said.
A similar incident had occurred on May 4 at Chandrakona in the West Midnapore district when the Trinamool Congress chief stepped out from her vehicle to confront people who were raising Lord Ram slogan in front of her convoy.
Earlier on Saturday, the West Bengal Police resorted to baton charge to disperse a group of BJP supporters staging a demonstration and shouting Lord Ram slogans, ahead of a TMC party meeting at Kanchrapara in North 24 Parganas district.
Singer-turned-politician and former Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises in the last NDA government, Babul Supriyo, was sworn-in as a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi new government on Thursday.
