Mamata Banerjee didn't need to react adversely to 'Jai Shree Ram' slogans: CK Bose

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's grandnephew and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Chandra Kumar Bose condemned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's behaviour after she refused to speak when 'Jai Shree Ram' slogans were raised during the celebrations of 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at Victoria Memorial in Kolkata on January 23.

He said, "Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose stood for unity.

He had people of all communities in Azad Hind Fauj.

Whether you say 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Sri Ram', I don't find difference.

'Jai Sri Ram' isn't a statement where one should react in allergic manner.

So, I think the honourable Chief Minister (Mamata Banerjee) need not have reacted adversely to a slogan whether it's 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Shree Ram'.

This is not the day to do any politics.

It is a day to celebrate, it is a day to pay homage to the soldiers and martyrs of Indian National Army."

WB polls: Kolkata sweet shop comes out with political 'Sandesh'

Ahead of the Assembly polls, the elections fever swinging in high altitude in West Bengal. An iconic sweet shop in Kolkata has launched 'sandesh' sweets etched with logos and slogans of various political parties. Kolkata's iconic sweet shop Balaram Mullick and Radharaman Mullick has etched political slogans and party symbols on 'Sandesh', a Bengali sweet dish made of milk, sugar and other ingredients. The slogans "Khela Hobe" (The game is on) and "Jai Shree Ram" are most commonly visible, with the shop seeing a minimum of 150 orders each day since February 27. Along with this, the shop is also displaying 'Sandesh' of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and WB CM Mamata Banerjee, with carved images of the two leaders. The 'Sandesh'-weighing 250 grams-that with political symbol and images of leaders costs Rs 170 per piece, while that of smaller size with slogans carved on it costs Rs 70. While speaking to ANI, the shop owner, Sudip Mullick said, "We always make these thematic sweets based on current trends, even during cricket or football World Cups. The election is the biggest festival of democracy and we wanted to highlight this." "We make new items as per season. Customers are liking the election-themed 'Sandesh' and buying as per preference," he added. A customer named Molly added, "The shop is known for such variety and this is going to attract a lot of eyeballs. I am sure that like me, several people will come to buy these sweets." Carvings of occasions such as "Bhaiphota" (Bhaiduj) on sweets have been a tradition in Bengal.
