Kolkata, July 8 (IANS): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday claimed “indecent comments” were made against her and Trinamool Congress MPs, and alleged that an attacker pulled at Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar’s saree when they were protesting the “injustice” done to Bengal in the Railway Budget.
“Indecent language was used against me. Bad language was used against my women MPs. My women MPs faced misbehaviour,” she told media persons at Chanditala in Hooghly district.
A visibly angry Banerjee said “dirty abuses” were hurled against her party MPs.
“Whatever happened is very dirty. They (Trinamool MPs) are all shocked. I will speak to my party,” she said.
Banerjee said some of her MPs have been elected for the first time and are very young. “If they get such a jolt at the very outset of their parliamentary career, that’s not good. Everybody can seek justice in parliament.”
“I have the right to seek justice for Bengal. Similarly, MPs from Bihar and Punjab can seek justice for their respective states. This is a democratic right.”
“But that doesn’t mean they will be beaten up, and their clothes will be torn, and they will be called…This is not fair,” she added.
