‘Don’t invite & insult’: Mamata declines to speak amid ‘Jai Shree Ram’ chants

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee declined to speak at an event where ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans were raised in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The event was organized to celebrate Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's 125th birth anniversary in Kolkata.

Slogans were raised after it was announced that Banerjee would address the programme.

“I think a government programme should have some dignity.

This is a government programme and not a political party's programme.

I am grateful to the Prime Minister, Culture Ministry for organizing an event in Kolkata.

But it is not right to invite someone and insult them.

In protest, I won’t speak.

Jai Hind, Jai Bangla,” wrapped up Mamata.

BJP leader and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grandnephew condemned Mamata’s behavior at the event.

He said, “Jai Shree Ram isn't a statement where one should react in a very allergic manner.

So, I think the honourable Chief Minister (Mamata Banerjee), with due respect to her, need not have reacted adversely to a slogan whether it's Jai Hind or Jai Shree Ram.” Watch the full video for more.

Can you tolerate 'Har Har Mahadev'?: PM Modi to CM Mamata on 'contesting from Varanasi'

With yet another jibe, Prime Minister in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas asked how Chief Minister Mamata is going to tolerate 'Har Har Mahadev' slogans in Varansi, where she is "planning to contest elections", when 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans irk her. "Didi's party says that she will contest from Varanasi, which makes two things clear -- that she has accepted her defeat in Bengal and that Didi has started a search for her space outside Bengal," said PM Narendra Modi in Sonarpur. He added, "People of Varanasi are as kind-hearted as people of Bengal. But you (Mamata Banerjee) will meet so many people with vermillion and 'choti'. 'Jai Shri Ram' slogan irritates you, but you will have to hear 'Har Har Mahadev' every 2 minutes. What will you do then?"

‘Congress raised doubts over vaccines’: Harsh Vardhan replies to Manmohan Singh

Hitting back at senior Congress leader Manmohan Singh for his critique of the government's COVID-19 management, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Monday alleged the second wave of the pandemic was instead fuelled by Congress ruled states as they were busy raising doubts about vaccines rather than vaccinating people. Responding to Singh's letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vardhan also said that the letter drafters of the senior Congress leader have done a great disservice to his standing. Tweeting the letter to Singh, the health minister said, "History shall be kinder to you Dr Manmohan Singh ji if your offer of 'constructive cooperation' and valuable advice was followed by your @INCIndia leaders as well in such extraordinary times !" Singh on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Modi suggesting five measures to battle the COVID-19 crisis, including ramping up vaccination and boosting supply of medicines.
