Mamata Banerjee has been dealt with a crude shock in the 2019 general elections. Her fortress of West Bengal has been breached and with her rampant appeasement and TMC’s political violence exposed, she is struggling to find issues. Instead of development and prosperity, she has been trying to play the ‘communalism card’, that is, attempting to prove herself as ‘secular’ by trying to paint BJP as ‘communal’.
Mamata’s violent reactions to the chants of Jai Shriram has been viral on social media, prompting wide speculations on her mental state. Known for her Muslim appeasement policies, Mamata, on the occasion of Eid, has again taken to religious preaching, with a ‘secularism’ overdose.
Addressing a gathering in Kolkata today, Mamata donned the role of a ‘secular’ preacher. She first branded each of India’s prevalent religions by a single word. Tyaag(renunciation) for Hindus, Imaan(honesty) for Muslims, Love for Christians and Balidan(sacrifice) for Sikhs. She then said ‘Jo hamse takrayega, choor choor ho jayega'(our enemies will be destroyed) is her slogan.
Mamata then assured the gathering of Muslims that there is nothing to be scared of. She resorted to an Urdu ‘Sher’ proclaiming that only God’s will prevails and not the ill-thoughts of enemies. She then scored the ultimate self-goal. Mamata claimed, “The faster they capture the EVMs, the quicker they will go away”.
WB CM: There is nothing to be scared. Muddai Lakh bura chahe to kya hota hai, wahi hota hai jo manzoor-e-khuda hota hai. Sometimes when the sun rises, its rays are very harsh but later it fades away. Don’t be scared, the faster they captured EVMs, the quicker they will go away. pic.twitter.com/vRtKHUZRQX

Even the staunchest Modi-haters and anti-BJP political voices have stopped blaming the EVMs after being thoroughly proven wrong time and again. However, Mamata Banerjee is perhaps yet to realise that. Twitter users also questioned her choice of tag words for each religion.
Pishi, Why should Hindu & Sikhs be synonymous with TYAAG & BALIDAAN? TYAAG & BALIDAAN for whom? Why should we be the sacrificial lambs always? What did the other communities give us in return? Why cant Hindus & Sikhs be synonymous with DHARMA & COURAGE?

Mamata and her cadre seem really rattled by the BJP’s rise in the state. The violent reactions, even arrests of people who chant ‘Jai Shriram’ in the state, the loss of 18 seats and the subsequent switch of many TMC leaders to BJP all might spell doom for the TMC government in the 2021 assembly elections.
