Mamata calls student a Maoist for grilling her on law and order
Next time you get a chance to ask a question to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee or criticise any of her move, think twice as you could be labelled as a Maoist sympathiser or a CPM cadre.
Taniya Bhardwaj, a student of political science at the premier Presidency College, dared to do that on a popular television news channel show on Friday at the Town Hall. She had asked a simple question about the conduct of senior state ministers and officials over crimes against women.
A furious chief minister labelled Taniya as a Maoist and a CPM cadre and asked the police to do a background check on those asking awkward questions. Taniya is now quite apprehensive about the consequence as the Kolkata Police has already started looking for information about the students who were present on the show and had asked Banerjee a few uncomfortable questions.
