Maverick Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today again threatened to slap photographers after getting worked up by their frenzied desire to get snaps of her.

After drawing flak for suggesting that security personnel should be whipped, West Bengal CM Mamata today again lost her cool, threatening to slap photographers.

The latest tongue lashing from the leader came while inaugurating a festival in Burdwan district

"I will slap you, you uncivilised people. Don't you see it's cooking here" she snapped at photographers jostling for space while photographing her at the 'Mati Utsav' (Earth Festival) here yesterday, when she was going round the venue.

The footage went viral on TV channels here today.

Mamata had been criticsed for shouting at security personnel in the Kolkata Book Fair on February 6 and saying she would 'whip' them for making her wait for her car.
