Row Over ‘Jai Shri Ram’ Continues, BJP MP Compares Mamata With Bull


New Delhi: With ‘Jai Shri Ram’ controversy raging in West Bengal, BJP MP from Uttarakhand’s Nainital-Udhamsingh Nagar Loksabha constituency Ajay Bhatt has now attacked WB CM Mamata Banerjee by calling her a ‘bull’.

“Mamata Banerjee gets angry when someone chants ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in front of her in the same way a bull gets agitated after seeing a piece of red cloth,” ANI quoted Bhatt on Wednesday.

“In Bengal, people have shaken Mamata Didi by chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. I don’t know what happens to her when she hears Ram’s name. She gets angry when someone chants ‘Jai Shri Ram which reminds one of how a bull gets agitated after seeing a piece of red cloth,” Bhatt added.

The first-time MP had some advice in store too for her. “Banerjee should keep patience. In a democracy, everyone has the right to shout slogans,” said Bhatt who defeated former Uttarakhand chief minister and veteran Congress leader Harish Rawat.

“I don’t know why Banerjee has an aversion to Ram Chandra. I watched a video in which she behaved like someone touched a beehive when people chanted Jai Shri Ram. Lord Ram is adorable. Some people say ‘Jai Shri Ram instead of saying ‘Hello.’ What is the problem with this,” he asked.

Banerjee has recently lost her cool on multiple occasions when people shouted “Jai Shri Ram” as her cavalcade passed through their regions, a move she says is conspired by BJP.
