Without naming Union minister Anurag Thakur or his ‘gaddaron ko goli maro saalo ko” remark, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, questioned how a central minister continues in a constitutional post despite speaking unconstitutionally.
Banerjee who was speaking at a convention of TMC workers on Wednesday (February 5) also described BJP as a party of “fekus” (those who bluff) who threaten people with guns and bullets to divide the country on the basis of religion.
The TMC supremo also slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his “goli vs boli” comment.
She said, “BJP is a feku party. It is only interested in giving out fake news. It is trying to divide the country on the basis of religion and are threatening people with guns and bullets”.
“I was born in Hindustan, not in a nation governed by BJP who attack people with guns and bullets,” she added.
The TMC supremo also criticised the BJP-led government at the Centre for destroying the harmony in the country by forcibly trying to implement the CAA, the NPR and the NRC.
Union minister Anurag Thakur on January 27, egged on a crowd to chant “shoot the traitors” at an election rally in the national capital.
Thakur’s remark was condemned by the Election Commission in the form of a campaign ban.
