TIMES NOW EXCLUSIVE: West Bengal: 10 people have been arrested for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans at WB CM @MamataOfficial‘s convoy yesterday.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been on the edge after BJP has made successful inroads in West Bengal securing 18 seats in the recent Lok Sabha elections. Banerjee who is known to be hypersensitive even when it comes to humour or constructive criticism has in recent times been displaying similar volatility to the name of Lord Ram.
It so seems that the frustration of gradually crumbling has left didi (Mamata as referred widely) completely delirious.
Yesterday, Mamata had raised strong objections to the people who were chanting the slogan of Jai Shree Ram as she passed through the area. Visibly irked Mamata was spotted getting down of her car at least twice and losing her cool at the onlookers. She was also heard using defamatory language, calling the people chanting the slogan ‘outsiders’.
Accusing the BJP of pitting non-Bengalis against Bengalis, Mamata had asked the police to immediately take down names of those chanting the slogans so that stern action could be initiated against them. Mamata in the video, which was doing rounds on social media, was heard threatening the crowd of strict repercussions.
Mamata Banerjee also alleged that people chanting Jai Shree Ram were criminals and they were attacking and abusing her.
This is not the first time that Mamata has reacted like this to the chants of Jai Shree Ram. A video of hers had gone viral earlier this month in which she was seen confronting people Jai Shree Ram in a similar way.
Incidentally, as BJP surge in Bengal gets bigger, Mamata’s wrath also seems to magnify. Innumerable BJP karyakartas have lost their lives as Trinamool Congress goons under Mamata Banerjee’s realm have carried out targeted killings of the ground-level workers. Dozens of BJP workers and leaders have been brutally attacked or killed before and during the election seasons in Bengal.
