BJP keen on protecting cows but not women: Jaya Bachchan

"We are a disciplined party and we condemn such acts".

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was in Delhi over the weekend when Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina came calling, wanted to meet Sonia Gandhi during the trip but couldn't.

Raising this issue during Zero Hour in the Upper House, Trinamool member Sukhendu Sekhar Roy said the BJP youth activist publicly described West Bengal CM as a "demon" and announced the bounty.

On Sunday, the Suri Police told the organizers of Bir Hanuman Jayanti that it would not allow holding of any rally or meeting on Tuesday. This is not the first time Sangh Parivar leaders have handed out violent threats. Whatever conspiracy they do, there will be no effect on our party. "Her only aim is to torture and threaten her political opponents", Rijiju, who is on a two-day visit to the state, said. The strength of these affiliates is not important.

While the senior BJP leadership, both at the national and state levels, were unequivocal in condemning the Uttar Pradesh leader's remark, nearly every leader of Mamata's party demanded his arrest. "Such fatwas are issued by ISIS and Taliban". RSS leaders maintain that they have been working on a "long term Bengal project". I pray to almighty to forgive them, for they know not what they are saying.

After nearly a month of facing an aggressive onslaught from the BJP-RSS camp since the Uttar Pradesh poll victory, Trinamul leaders today grabbed the opportunity to embarrass the Sangh parivar. Rewind to last December.

Yogesh blamed that Mamta Banerjee does not allow Saraswati to be worshiped in West Bengal and neither gives permission to perform Ramanavami fair.

Mohammad Salim CPI (M) leader said, "We condemn the statement made by Varshey".

Coming under fire from opposition leaders, Ghosh, predictably, apologised for this remark.

Trinamool Congress supporter has doubled the value for the head of the leader of the BJYM, who has kept an 11 lakh prize on the head of Trinamool Congress leader Mamta Banerjee.

"We do not agree with such remarks. Here in Bengal, lakhs of Mamata supporters are present to defend her life", Dr Chatterjee said. Such statements not only propagate violence but also create an atmosphere of polarisation. "Our party workers have been conducting peaceful processions on Ram Navami". People will decide what they want to eat or what they wear.
