During a public meeting at West Bengal's Purba Bardhaman, BJP chief JP Nadda pointed at CM Mamata Banerjeee for not commenting on 'anti-Dalit' statement by a TMC leader. "Today is Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar's 130th birth anniversary... Just now, a TMC leader used an offending word for Dalit brothers that I can't say here. I am sad by seeing that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has not yet condemned it. This is TMC's anti-Dalit face and we should understand this," said JP Nadda. TMC leader Sujata Mondal Khan made controversial remarks against Dalits as she equated them with beggars.
After West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee said she hailed from the 'Shandilya' lineage, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said political parties have always vying to prove who among them is the bigger Hindu and this is not good for a secular and democratic India. Owaisi said: "Throughout her election campaigning, Mamata Banerjee has been reciting Chandi Path and Durga Paths. Now she said that her Gotra is Shandliya and she is a Hindu Brahmin. If she is saying that she belongs to the upper caste in a state where 27 per cent are Muslims and 22 per cent are Dalits. Where should Muslims and Dalits of West Bengal go, who are not part of the 'varna' system? She's practicing PM Modi & BJP's politics of communalism. They are made for each other."
