As political tension between Trinamool Congress and BJP reaches the crowning point in West Bengal, Haryana Health Minister, Anil Vij took to Twitter to call out on Mamata Banerjee’ unworthy attitude towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party.
Calling the West Bengal Chief Minister, ‘mentally unstable’ he questioned the President of India whether such mentally unsound people were fit to enjoy the position of the Chief Minister of any state?
जिस प्रकार से #ममता_बनर्जी प्रधान मंत्री जी के खिलाफ निम्न स्तर के शब्दों का इस्तेमाल कर रही है उससे लगता है वह अपना मानसिक संतुलन खो चुकी है । आदरणीय राष्ट्रपति जी को संज्ञान लेना चाहिए कि क्या ऐसे अनियंत्रित दिमाग वाले व्यक्ति को मुख्यमंत्री जैसे महत्वपूर्ण पद पर रखा जा सकता है

Unnerved by the winds of West Bengal changing in favour of BJP, Mamata Banerjee has been lately resorting to all kinds of tactics to keep her position intact. From castigating the Prime Minister to violence, booth capturing and rigging or unleashing atrocities at BJP workers at ground level, Mamata and her goons have been all-inclusive this election season.
However, such nefariousness is not new for Bengal which has experienced similar situations on multiple occasions. In February, West Bengal was encompassed in a similar anarchic situation after the Kolkata police had forcefully detained eight CBI officials who had gone to question police commissioner Rajeev Kumar to obtain crucial information regarding the Saradha scam.
Haryana’s Health Minister, Anil Vij had then too, blamed Mamata for the chaos in West Bengal and compared her to the mythological character of ‘Tadaka’, a princess-turned-demoness in the epic Ramayana saying she creates problem pertaining to every issue.
Citing the villain of the epic Ramayana, Anil Vij said, “I used to watch Ram-Leela when I was young and in a scene the demon ‘Tadaka’ used to disturb the ‘Yagyas’ conducted by the Rishis. Mamata Banerjee is also indulging in a similar act.”
Interestingly, it is widely believed that senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy also allegedly refers former Congress president Sonia Gandhi by the same name ‘Tadaka’ along with other names like ‘Vishakanya’.
Moreover, in another controversial statement, Vij had compared Congress President Rahul Gandhi to the deadly Nipah Virus. After much outrage, Vij later had to withdraw this comment.
Anil Vij had stirred yet another political storm, when days after Prime Minister Modi and other BJP leaders and supporters prefixed ‘Chowkidar’ to their Twitter handles as part of ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar‘ campaign, Haryana Minister Anil Vij advised Congress supporters to add ‘Pappu’ to their names.
