Kolkata: The relationship between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the BJP is worsening by the day, touching a nadir on Sunday when she visited a BJP office and painted “AITC” (that stands for All India Trinamool Congress) on its outer wall. The video that catches the chief minister in the act went viral on Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp yesterday, reducing Banerjee to an object of ridicule.

In Bengal, the ruling Trinamool and the opposition led by the BJP are accusing each other of occupying their offices, sabotage and violence. One such case emerged in Naihati of the North 24 Parganas district. On 30 May, Banerjee allegedly occupied a BJP office after removing the electoral symbol of the BJP, lotus, and painting the name and symbol of the Trinamool on the walls of that office.

Union Minister Babul Supriyo has said that he would send ‘Get Well Soon’ greeting cards to the chief minister.

On Monday, Asansol MP Supriyo said, “Mamata is an experienced leader, but for some time there has been an unusual and strange change in her behaviour. She should keep in mind the dignity of her post. She should take rest for a few days. She is frustrated with the presence of the BJP in Bengal. We will send Didi ‘get well soon’ cards on behalf of the Asansol Lok Sabha constituency.”

BJP president in Bengal Dilip Ghosh said that Mamata Banerjee had lost her mental balance.

After omitting all signs of BJP from their Naihati office, Mamata said the office actually belonged to the Trinamool! She alleged that BJP MP Arjun Singh and his supporters, who had won the Lok Sabha seat of Barrackpore, had captured it.”

Before that, as Mamata’s convoy approached the BJP office, the crowd on the road greeted her with slogans of “Jai Sri Ram”. The chief minister once again got worked up, descended from her car and threatened the crowd of strict action against them. This once again triggered a series of jokes on Twitter.

On Sunday, Mamata had accused the BJP of misusing the ‘Jai Sri Ram’ chant by mixing religion and politics.
