Kolkata: BJP leader Giriraj Singh on Monday launched a blistering attack on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, equating her to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
“West Bengal is the only state in the country where there is no place for democracy. Mamata Banerjee is playing the role of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Bengal. Like Kim, she kills everyone who raises voice against her,” Singh was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
He made the statement soon after the BJP filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the order by Calcutta High Court’s division bench which barred the party from holding its ‘Save Democracy Yatra’ in the state.
Singh said that in the democracy, anybody can organise rallies in any part of the country. “Nobody can stop us, we will win the case in the Supreme Court,” he added.
Last week, the single bench of the High Court had allowed the BJP to proceed with its yatra in the state and directed that the administration should ensure there is no breach of law and order. However, the order was challenged by Mamata Banerjee-led government in the division bench of the High Court.
