Wear Bermudas: Bengal BJP Chief’s Jibe At Mamata Sparks Outrage, TMC Slams ‘Distasteful Comment’

- Advertisement -

Kolkata: Making a controversial remark, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday drew the ire of the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) and a large number of netizens by suggesting that its arch-rival party supremo and state’s chief minister Mamata Banerjee should wear Bermuda instead of saree so that people can clearly see her injured left leg.

A video of BJP state president Dilip Ghosh apparently suggesting this triggered controversy with the ruling TMC slamming it as a “distasteful comment” and women expressing outrage over the remark in social media.

However, no one was named in the purported speech by Ghosh, but known for his controversial comments in the past, most commentators took the comments to be directed at Mamata.

Ghosh, while addressing a rally in Purulia district, said, “Her plaster was replaced with crepe bandage. But she is still showing her leg to everyone. She is wearing her saree in such a way that one leg is visible while the other is not. I have never seen anyone wearing a saree like this. If she has to show her leg then she can wear Bermudas so that people can see clearly.”

Slamming the comment, the TMC tweeted a 14-second video clip in which Ghosh could be heard making the statement.

“Such a distasteful remark is expected of Dilip Babu and nobody else. A remark against a woman chief minister proves that the BJP does not respect women. The mothers and sisters of Bengal will give a befitting reply on May 2,” tweeted the TMC

Amidst all the chaos, Ghosh is still silent and has made no statement on this throughout the day.

For the unversed, the TMC supremo, in almost all her election speeches, has alleged that women are not safe in BJP-ruled states. She has also alleged that women in the BJP are not safe either.

The TMC has focussed on women in its campaign. The main slogan of the ruling party says Bengal wants only its daughter. The BJP, too, focussed on women in its election manifesto released on March 21.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Can I just say what a comfort to find someone who actually
    knows what they’re discussing over the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people need to look at this and understand this side of the
    story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
