The West Bengal Police has reportedly arrested 10 people for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ at state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s convoy on Thursday (30 May).
According to the reports, ten people were picked up by the police from West Bengal’s Barrackpore under the bailable sections of Indian Penal Code.
Earlier on Thursday (30 May), West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee suffered a virtual meltdown after locals in Bhatpara began chanting Jai Shri Ram. A video of the same went viral on social media.
The video begins with Mamata purportedly threatening to flay the skins of locals and demanded that the authorities conduct a house to house search to identify locals who dared to chant Jai Shri Ram slogans and allegedly also attacked her car.
After Mamata got back inside her convoy the locals again began chanting Jai Shri Ram, which prompted Mamata to get down from her car and suffered a virtual meltdown.
She can be heard demanding that the sloganeers face her and proceeded to abuse and call them criminals. She also dismissed the people as “outsiders” and not natives of Bengal and vowed to “take action”.
