Section of political parties, groups spreading hatred: Mamata Banerjee
Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on February 20 said a section of political parties and groups were indulging in rumour mongering and spreading hatred with their “dangerous statements”.
“One section of political parties/groups along with people holding constitutional positions (are) indulging in rumour mongering, spreading hatred with dangerous statements,” she said in a tweet.
“Even journalists not spared. This is shameless politics. What levels of polluted politics have we descended to?” she said.
She also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of fomenting communal tension in the wake of the terror assault at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir. She said, “Only they are nationalists and rest of us are anti-nationals? We have always maintained that we are all united.”
