In response to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's warning of not doing politics in the name of festivals, Rashtriya Samajsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar on Sunday said that the former, herself, was politicising festivals to create a rift between the Hindu and the Muslim communities by giving such an advice, and added that her statement was "laughable, uniformed, and full of violence."
"Her statement is laughable, uniformed, and full of violence," said the RSS leader, and added that Mamata has become a "ridiculous joke".
"Her advice is her political ploy. She herself is doing the biggest politics to create a rift between both communities," Singh further added.
Stating that communal violence may occur on Muharram day as it coincides with the day following Vijayadashmi when idol immersions are usually carried out, the West Bengal Chief Minister has barred idol immersion after 6:00 p.m.
Mamata also warned that violence will not be tolerated during festivities.
