The Congress on Monday took strong exception to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s remarks about Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and demanded an apology from her. Mamata made the remark at a rally at Canning in South 24-Parganas district.
“The Centre is not giving us the financial package that we have been demanding for so long. We have told the PM several times about it. What shall we do now? Marbo naki? (shall we beat him up?)” Mamata said.
“How can she use such filthy language with respect to the Prime Minister? She is the CM. It is the language of hooligans. She must apologise,” WBPCC chief Pradip Bhattacharya told The Indian Express.
