BJP youth activist arrested for Met Gala-themed meme of Mamata Banerjee

TMC leaders said that that sharing the CM’s photoshopped pictures was a grave crime and it was insulting the CM of the state.

West Bengal Chief Minister, and Trinamool Congress head, Mamata Banerjee expressed her intolerance and disapproval for dissenting opinions. Priyanka Sharma, BJP youth leader has been arrested for posting a meme mocking Banerjee on her Facebook Timeline on May 9, reports DNA.

A complaint was made by TMC leader Vibhas Hazra, against the convenor of BJYM, Priyanka Sharma for allegedly sharing a morphed picture of Mamata Banerjee in Howrah. The MET Gala 2019 themed meme superimposed Mamata’s face on Priyanka Chopra’s body. She was arrested and produced in Howrah Court.

The copy of the complaint read that this act broke the community guidelines and it was being viewed as an issue of violence. “She not just tries to insult our Hon’ble Chief Minister, but she trying to insult the culture of our Bengal by her post on Facebook and which is Cyber Crime”, read the complaint.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actor, Priyanka Chopra’s whacky look on Met-Gala 2019, with this year’s theme – Camp: Notes on Fashion, had also become the hot topic for memesters who had a field day poking fun at the celebrity.

However, TMC leaders said that that sharing the CM’s photoshopped pictures was a grave crime and it was insulting the CM of the state.

This is not the first instance where Mamata Banerjee has been seen stifling dissenting voices and conflicting opinions. On March 27, Tina Biswas, an author of novel critical of WB CM Mamata Banerjee had alleged harassment during her book launch at Kolkata.

Recently, a Bengali movie, Bhobishyoter Bhoot (Ghost of the Future), directed by Anik Dutta, which took a dig at Mamata Banerjee’s style of functioning, was pulled off theatres. It was only after a public outcry that theatres in Kolkata have started screening the film again.

Similarly, a revising committee of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had refused to clear movie named Kangal Malsat for screening, after claiming it “insulted” Mamata Banerjee. Likewise, Teen Kanya’s screening was stopped by Mamata since it resembled the Park Street rape case of 2012.

Last year a man hailing from Tripura’s Dhalai district was arrested for allegedly making derogatory remarks against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in a social media post.

As per reports, one Arunachal Dutta Choudhary, an employee of West Bengal Health Service was suspended over a Facebook post, which described the adverse condition in his hospital which has been facing a wave of dengue patients in the year 2017 as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee holds the health portfolio in the state government.

Mamata had also banned books by 1981 batch IPS officer Nazrul Islam which were critical of Mamata government not delivering what was promised.

The list of bans is long but perhaps the most absurd was the incident where Mamata’s police arrested a businessman for ranting about traffic conditions on Facebook and not apologizing about it.
