Union Minister Giriraj Singh: Mamata Banerjee is not Jhansi ki Rani, but North Korean leader Kim Jong-un
On Friday, Union Minister Giriraj Singh compared West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-up, a day after All India Trinammol party called her as a new age “Jhansi ki Rani”.
TMC leader Dinesh Trivedi drew a parallel line between the central government and the pre independence British regime and called Banerjee today’s Jhansi ki Rani, in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.
Singh stated that “it is an abusive comment towards ‘Jhansi ki Rani’ as she can be a demon who has destroyed the West Bengal or she can become Kim Jong-up who kill those who speaks against her”.
“But she doesn’t have the power to become Jhansi ki Rani or Padmavaat. She can only support illegal migrates of Rohingyas and talk about disturbing India. Jhansi ki Rani fought to save the country but she is fighting to divide the country”.
On Sunday night, a CBI team moved to arrest Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with the Saradha Chit Fund Scam. The face-off between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the Centre erupted. The central investigating agency officials were denied entry to top cop’s and detained briefly too.
On Sunday night, Banerjee started the ‘Save the Constitution’ dharna to protest for TMC coup against Prime Minister Narendra Modi led NDA government at the centre.
On Tuesday, Banerjee called off the protest saying that she would take the protest to Central Government in Delhi, next week.
The Supreme Court has asked Kumar to appear before the CBI in connection with saradha scam. The bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that no action taken against Kumar, who will appear before the CBI in Shillong, Meghalaya.
The further hearing of the case is on 2oth February, which also issued a contempt notice to West Bengal Chief Secretary, the DGP and Kolkata Police Commissioner on a plea stated that the CBI team was detained when it went to raised question against Kumar on Sunday.
