Mamata Banerjee attends iftar as Jai Shri Ram row rages in West Bengal.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended an iftar hosted by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation on Monday. This comes amidst the row over the chanting of Jai Shri Ram by those Mamata Banerjee has termed criminals in her state.
In the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, the BJP won a whopping 18 seats, touching an impressive double figure in Bengal for the first time.
In this charged atmosphere, Mamata Banerjee's breaking fast with Muslims during Ramzan sends a clear political signal. Both TMC and BJP are digging in for a long, bruising fight.
