BJP keen on protecting cows not women: Jaya Bachchan

Mamata Banerjee Not Allowing BJP To Celebrate Hanuman Jayanti In West Bengal: Rijiju Mamata meets prime minister Modi, seeks funds due to Bengal

BJP distanced itself from the statement fearing that it will bring a bad name to the party.

A local resident lodged a police complaint in West Bengal's Bolpur, the same area where a cane charge on a crowd on Hanuman Jayanti allegedly infuriated Yogesh Varshney - the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leader - to make the announcement.

Referring to Mamata as a "demon" in a video for "not allowing Durga or Saraswati puja in Bengal", Varshney said demons should not be allowed to live on earth. Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan said in the Rajya Sabha, where several opposition parties demanded the government's response on the BJP youth leader's comment.

"I condemn this type of statement".

"These are the black sheep of politics". Varshney further accused the Bengal CM of "targeting Hindus".

She said in a democracy the EC can not be immune to the demand of the majority of political parties. "I won't tolerate such hoodlums of BJP-RSS", Barkati said to Catch.

Raising the issue soon after the House assembled to take up the day's business, TMC member Saugata Roy said "Mamata Banerjee is not only an elected Chief Minister but a former member of this House too".

"Statements like these are against the political culture of the country. It is a shameful act", Chowdhury said while talking to DNA.

"We have seen the violent politics of the 70s, we have been through 34 years of CPI-M's violent rule".

"Strong action should be taken against him".

There is only one way to deal with such leaders going rogue: Strip them of the offices they occupy and sack them from the party. The government also condemned the statement saying the state government was "free to take legal action" against Varshney.

While in Delhi, apart from meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leader L K Advani, Banerjee held closed-door talks with Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ahmed Patel.

A police case was also filed against West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh for spearheading a Ram Navami rally in his constituency Kharagpur of West Midnapore district.

Countering Varshey's statement, the Imam of Kolkata's Tipu Sultan Mosque Nur-ur Rehaman-Barkati issued a fatwa on 12 April with an award of Rs 22 lakh for Varshney's head.
