Medinipore: While bitter war of words between BJP leaders and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is not unusual, a BJP leader has taken the ugly game of words to another level.
BJP leader Shyamapada Mondal on Monday said that he cannot understand whether Banerjee is a man or a woman.
In a video posted by ANI, Mondal is seen perched on a stage amid a swarm of party workers and supporters. His comments were welcomed with applause by the supporters.

The ludicrous comment comes days after the BJP intensified its campaign to reach out the grassroots in West Bengal Trinamool Congress is yet to react to the scathing comments.
BJP national president Amit Shah, with an aim to strengthen party presence in West Bengal, made a three-day visit to the state recently.
Shah’s visit triggered a barrage of comments from Trinamool leaders.
