Mamata Banerjee says “sorry” over filthy remark against President Murmu

Trinamool Supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee seeks apology for her minister Akhi Giri’s filthy remark question the looks of President Draupadi Murmu. Finally, Trinamool has officially says sorry for the shameful remark that ashamed not only the party but also entire country as President is also the Supreme Commander of the armed forces. Such remark actually insults India.

Speaking from Nabanna (West Bengal Secretariat), “We all respect the President and she is a highly respected lady. It was not right for Giri to make comments against her. We don’t support his opinion and he has been warned against repeating such things. If it happens in the future, the party will take action.”. Banerjee added, “I personally respect her (Murmu) very much. I believe beauty doesn’t depend on colour or appearance. It lies inside. She is a very sweet lady. I like her very much. Giri has done wrong. I condemn what the MLA has said”.

This incident has once again raised a big question on regular usage of filthy remarks or hate speech among politicians.

However, the man in the centre of controversy, Akhil Giri has already apologized. He said, “I didn’t mean to disrespect the honourable President. I was replying to what BJP leaders said while verbally attacking me. Every day I am verbally attacked for my looks. If someone thinks I have disrespected the President, then it is wrong. I apologise for making such a remark. I have immense respect for the President of our country”.

Disgrace on Trinamool! Aunt-nephew silent on Akhil Giri’s sexiest remark on President Murmu, BJP takes the matter to NCW

Cat-fights or brick-bating is nothing new between political parties especially opposition hurling allegations at the ruling party and ruling party in return would counter the allegations. Blame game too has been the cult in politics but off-late things are really turning scary. Some in the opposition make filthy passes and gestures even at the highest offices. In a recent incident has been reported from West Bengal where Trinamool state fisheries minister Akhil Giri has churned fresh controversy by making passes at President Draupadi Murmu.

On Friday, Giri during a rally in Nandigram, made a filthy pass at President Draupadi Murmu. He while attacking Leader of Opposition Subhendu Adhikary, suddenly attacked President Murmu and questioned her looks. This Trinamool leader did not stop here but waited for the crowd to laugh on his filthy remarks. Worst of all, two senior Trinamool leaders – Shashi Panja (also a cabinet minister and spokesperson of the party) and party spokesperson Kunal Ghosh were present when Giri was making the pass. On a popular television news channel in the evening Panja on one hand said it’s not party’s opinion but immediately tried to shield the filthy Trinamool leader by saying nobody shouts when Prime Minister Narendra Modi calls mamata Banerjee “Didi … O Didi…” However, she totally forgot Banerjee insulting the chair of Prime Minister during the Assembly campaigning. She had even said when PM Modi comes to Bengal she would give him stone chips to eat.

Taking the issue seriously, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded an explanation from Giri and Trinamool. The party condemned Akhil Giri’s derogatory comments. Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda also demanded that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tender a public apology for Giri’s comments and clarify that at whose behest he made such “unfortunate” and “indecent” remarks.

Munda, a tribal leader like Murmu, said Giri had insulted the country and claimed that his statement exposed the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress which has been “exploiting” the tribal population.

The issue has been raised with the National Commission for Women (NCW). However, not a single word was heard from Trinamool Supremo Mamata Banerjee and West Bengal Chief Minister. Is this also a “choto ghotona” (petty incident), “sajano ghotona” (concocted incident), and “bohiragoto der kaaj” (outsider’s work) ? The three cult expressions of her and her party members.
