During her election campaign in Dengaga, a Muslim-dominated area of Basirhat Lok Sabha constituency, she said, ‘keep your eyes open, your A dangerous virus-like BJP is roaming around. Do you know what is more dangerous than Corona? It is the BJP. Because they do not understand our culture, humanity. This party discriminates between religions and organizes man-to-man riots. If the BJP comes to power, the countdown of Muslims will begin.
Defending the party, the BJP IT Cell head Amit Malviya tweeted that ‘politics in West Bengal is at its worst, they even haven’t spared vaccines out of it. First, Mamta Banerjee’s Cabinet Minister Siddhikula Chaudhary stopped the truck carrying the vaccine.
