Actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Sunday tweeted his support for Mamata Banerjee, who has been facing controversy over her reaction to slogans of “Jai Shri Ram”. The Chief Minister, who got off her car several times to reprimand the sloganeers, has been criticized and ridiculed – not only by the BJP, but also the Congress and the Left. In a series of messages directed at the Mamata Banerjee-baiters, Shatrughan Sinha on Sunday said “enough is enough”.
“Politicizing in the name of religion is not advisable nor acceptable, as people want growth, development & progress. The entire nation is watching this disrespect to a lady of substance, in the true sense especially after the alleged malpractices by the machines & results during the just concluded elections,” his tweet read.
Mr Sinha, who changed camp from the BJP to the Congress ahead of the elections, had earlier expressed his regard for Ms Banerjee when she held a huge rally in Kolkata to unite the opposition against the BJP. This time, he hailed her as a “great tigress”.
