Bagga to send 1 lakh “Jai Shri Ram” postcards to Mamata
Taking a dig at West Bengal’s chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who often feels targeted with Jai Shri Ram's slogan, Bhartiya Janata Party’s leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has decided to send 1 lakh postcards to CM Mamata with Jai Shri Ram written on it.
Mamata Banerjee on Saturday refused to address at the Kolkata’s Victoria memorial where the center’s Parakram Divas celebrations, marking Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s 125th birth anniversary were held.
She hadn’t even started speaking when she, by a section of the crowd, was greeted with the chants of Jai Shri Ram. She was visibly angry and alleged that it is a matter of “humiliation”.
“I feel that a government program should have dignity. This is not a political program, this is a government program. I am grateful to the Prime Minister and Cultural ministry for holding this program here in Kolkata. It doesn't suit you to insult someone after inviting them. As a protest, I won't speak anything. Jail Hind. Jai Bangla," said Banerjee before walking away.
Several BJP leaders have targeted her over her this behavior. BJP Bengal unit head, Kailash Vijayvargiya said, “She felt insulted when some people welcomed her with Jai Shri Ram slogans. What kind of politics is this?”
Anil Vij, Haryana’s home minister opined that Jai Shri Ram slogans to Mamata Banerjee work a red rag to a bull.
Prime minister Narendra Modi, who was also present there, didn’t comment on the row started and ended his speech which was liberally laced with Bengali sentences and ‘Jai Hind’.
