Kolkata: After the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, we now have the Goddess of People’s Welfare – yes West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee will now stand tall as Maa Durga at some pandals this Pujo.

And on expected lines, Banerjee has drawn flak from the main opposition party BJP. “This deification of Mamata Banerjee, who has blood of innocent Bengalis on her hand, following the gruesome post poll violence in Bengal, is nauseating. This is an insult to goddess Durga. Mamata Banerjee must stop this. She is hurting the sensibilities of Hindus of Bengal,” tweeted the party’s co-in charge of West Bengal Amit Malviya.

State BJP chief, Dilip Ghosh added, “I believe offering prayers to Maa Durga, who is Bengal’s pride, in some other form is not right. Calling herself secular while repeatedly hurting the sentiments of people of Bengal is not appropriate.”

The Nazrul Park Unnayan Samity, Baguihati has joined hands with Crowdnxt Mediia Art to create an idol of Maa Durga on the lines of the TMC supremo’s face – costing more than Rs 2 lakh. Artist Mintu Pal is busy giving final touches to the idol which will be attired in a white saree like what Didi does.

For sure, Malviya wouldn’t be the only one, more sarcastic comments would follow and we are waiting with bated breath!
