Mamata Banerjee’s response to ‘belligerent’ slogans of Jai Shree Ram: Directs TMC workers to greet callers with ‘Jai Bangla Jai Hind’

Mamata Banerjee had thrice confronted groups of people chanting "Jai Shri Ram' at her convoy

Facing flak from several quarters for confronting groups of people chanting “Jai Shri Ram”, the West Bengal chief minister has now come up with new demand, directing TMC workers across the state to greet phone calls not by “Hello” but by “Jai Bangla Jai Hind”.

The TMC workers across the state have been strictly instructed to greet people on phone by “Jai Bangla, Jai hind” instead of “Hello” only after which they can continue their conversation. In a public meeting, Mamata Banerjee said, “I will say Jai Hind not once but thousand times. I have no problem in chanting Jai Hind as it was a slogan chanted by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It is not related to a particular community. You all should chant Jai Hind. Bengal’s culture is not so cheap that it can be adulterated by outsiders with their belligerent slogans.”

The dictum comes at a time when 7 people were detained by the West Bengal police, allegedly on the directions of CM Mamata Banerjee for chanting slogans of “Jai Shri Ram” at her motorcade while it was passing through the Bhatpara area. A furious Mamata came out of her vehicle and confronted the sloganeers at least thrice while she was on her way to the destination. The video of which has gone viral on the Social Media in which an enraged Mamata Banerjee can be seen admonishing people who were chanting “Jai Shri Ram” and called them ‘BJP people’ who have come to the state from outside.

Threatening the people who chanted “Jai Shri Ram”, Mamata Banerjee said, “What do you think, you can come to my state, stay here and abuse me? How dare you do this? I will not put up with this kind of behaviour. all your names and details will be noted down.”
