BJP MLA Triggered Fresh Row By Calling Mamata ‘Rakshasi’


Lucknow: There seems to be no end to the war of words between the Trinamool Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and it has in fact spilled over outside West Bengal as well. A BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh, Surendra Singh, has triggered a fresh row by calling West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee a ‘rakshasi’ (demoness).

Expressing his anger with a mythological analogy, the BJP MLA said that Mamata Banerjee has been stalling the path of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party just like a demoness stopped the path of lord Hanuman when he visited Lanka.

Referring to Prime Minister Modi as lord Ram and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as Hanuman, the BJP MLA said, “Now the country has a Hanuman in the form of Yogi ji and no one has the capability to stop him. Now the demoness will be defeated and an era of Vibhishan will begin.”
