News Desk: A leader of Mumbai BJP has filed a police complaint against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for “showing utter disrespect to national anthem” by allegedly singing it while in a sitting position and then “abruptly stopping after 4 or 5 verses”, during her visit to the city on Wednesday.
While singing the National Anthem during a press conference in Mumbai, Mamata Banerjee did not complete the anthem and sat down midway.
The West Bengal unit of BJP was quick to react. They took to social media to slam her for the act.
Maharashtra BJP leader Pratik Karpe tweeted, “Isn’t this demeaning National Anthem? What were the so called intellectuals present doing when CM @MamataOfficial started National Anthem in a sitting position. Not only that, then she went ahead and abruptly stopped it in between”
