Even after Lok Sabha Polls of 2019 , West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee continues to be in confrontationist mood.
In the latest incident , peeved by belligerent cries of “Jai Shri Ram’ saw her step off her vehicle thrice in Bengal and admonish the chanters who stood their ground and resumed the chant as she resumed her journey.
Mamata later told her supporters to chant “Jai Hind’.
“On the roads, say ‘Jai Hind’. I will say ‘Jai Hind, Joy Bangla”. Let people be happy with their own cultures. Cultures should not be imposed on people.”
Vowing to “never let Bangla become (violent like) Gujarat’, Mamata added: “I repeat, I will never let Bengalis and non-Bengalis to be turned against each other. I love those non-Bengalis who have made Bangla their home. Come forward to fight these criminals who are committing atrocities. Don’t sell your self-respect to the BJP.”
