West Bengal Bhartiya Janata Party Chief Dilip Ghosh on Monday replied back to the fatwa issued against him for his drag by hair remarks against Mamata Banerjee and said that this was not Pakistan and Fatwa doesn’t work here. Earlier today, the Imam of the Tipu Sultan Mosque had issued a fatwa against Joshi for his derogatory remarks made against the West Bengal Chief Minister. Joshi had earlier said that Mamata Banerjee could have been pulled and dragged by ‘his police’, had the BJP wanted to do so. He had further said that Mamata was crying only because she had lost thousands of crores due to the demonetisation drive. He added, “…we had thought that she will ultimately jump in the Ganges… this person (Banerjee) has lost her mind and we are not ready to see her insanity… the state’s people have realised their mistake of bringing in the change in West Bengal.”
Dilip’s derogatory remark against Mamata drew a quick reaction from opposition. Senior TMC leader Derek O’Brien said that politics has touched a new low and this is third class politics. He said that these threats are dangerous and personal. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal too reacted to Dilip Ghosh’s comment and through his Twitter handle highlighted that Dilip Ghosh was claiming that Delhi Police is controlled by BJP.
Mamta has been leading opposition march against PM Narendra Modi’s demonetisation drive. Mamata, along with Delhi chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress VP Rahul Gandhi has been the staunchest opposers of the demonetisation drive. So far, the West Bengal CM has visited New Delhi twice, she had also gone to Bihar to protest against the currency ban.
