Mamata Banerjee has picked up her pen to combat ‘saffron terror’ : TMC mouthpiece

Mamata Banerjee has become one of the prominent faces of the united opposition that has come together to defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Continuing her attack on the BJP, the chief minister of West Bengal has written a poem in her party’s mouthpiece “Jaggo Bangla” with the headline that suggests the chief minister has ‘picked up her pen to combat saffron terror.’

The weekly publication promotes the ideas of the TMC wherein last few of their weekly issues have focused entirely on the BJP and equating them with a religious pariah. TMC mouthpiece’s ire seems to have gone up since considerable surge of vote share in favour of the BJP in the recently concluded panchayat elections, which were clouded with violence.

In the latest issue, Mamata has penned two poems. One is titled ‘Identity’ and the other one is titled ‘Untouchable’ both are directed towards the recent National Register of Citizens (NRC) uproar. The idea of saffron terror and its propagators have all been debunked over time and their theories clinically dissected and proven to be falsehoods. Mamata Banerjee, however, seems to disagree.

The second poem that the chief minister has penned down raises several questions especially since it’s been printed on the party mouthpiece.

The entire poem penned by Mamata is reproduced below.

“Do you want to go to China?
No Comments please.
Political Diplomacy cancelled it.
Want to visit Chicago?
To commemorate 125 years of
Swami Vivekananda’s address?
Religious monopoly shut down the door.
Accepted the invitation of St. Stephen’s College?
Not allowed friend.
See the class struggle.
Want to protest for Indian citizens in Assam?
Yor are anti-national.
Fortunately you were born in West Bengal,
Otherwise you would have been called
Intruders.
Fair enough, friends,
Fine touch,
You are untouchable.”

“Fortunately you were born in West Bengal, Otherwise you would have been called Intruders. Fair enough, friends, Fine touch, You are untouchable.”

If one notices the insinuation here, it seems that Mamata is hinting at and subversively equating “illegal” with “untouchables”. And the phrase ”fortunately you were born in Bengal” seems to suggest that the only people who are born in Bengal are sensible and lucky enough to understand and embrace inclusivity.

The NRC issue has seen a split in the political spectrum. While the BJP has supported the NRC wholeheartedly, Congress and its allies have not. Owing to their rhetoric on NRC, 2 TMC politicians from Assam had also quit the party.
