Mamata Banerjee insults National Anthem, Mumbai BJP files Complaint

Mumbai: A Mumbai BJP leader filed a complaint against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, for insulting Indian national anthem, on Wednesday. Singing national anthem while being seated and stopping midway is demeaning as per BJP leader Pratik Karpe.

Mamata Banerjee during her visit in Mumbai, was seen singing the national anthem while in a sitting position and then abruptly stopping after 4 or 5 verses.

Maharashtra BJP leader Pratik Karpe tweeted, “Isn’t this demeaning National Anthem? What were the so called intellectuals present doing when CM @MamataOfficial started National Anthem in a sitting position. Not only that, then she went ahead and abruptly stopped it in between.”

The West Bengal BJP unit also slammed CM Mamata Banerjee for allegedly insulting the national anthem by singing the incomplete anthem followed with series of slams by the West Bengal BJP unit for Mamata’s disrespect to the national anthem.

The BJP West Bengal unit tweeted on twitter saying “Mamata Banerjee was sitting down at first then stood up and stopped singing halfway the national anthem of India. Today, as a Chief Minister, she has insulted the culture of Bengal, the national anthem and the country, and Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore!”

Minutes after the conference, several political leaders slammed Banerjee for this gesture of hers.

BJP leader Amit Malviya tweeted, “Our national anthem is one of the most powerful manifestations of our national identity. The least people holding public office can do is not demean it. Here is a mutilated version of our national anthem sung by Bengal CM. Is India’s opposition so bereft of pride and patriotism?”

BJP West Bengal President Dr Sukanta Majumdar also tweeted, “Bengal CM @MamataOfficialsitting at a constitution post insults National Anthem at a gathering in Mumbai. Doesn’t she know proper National Anthem etiquette or is she insulting knowingly?”

National President of BJP Yuva Morcha, Tejasvi Surya tweeted, “Here we have a Chief Minister, who fails to respect our National Anthem. Expecting the opposition parties to respect Bharat and its values is a lot to ask for these days. This deplorable behaviour from a Constitutional Authority is extremely shameful and condemnable.”
