TMC Slams Giriraj Singh’s ‘Thumka’ Remark On Mamata Banerjee

| Updated: December 7, 2023 14:48

BJP MP Giriraj Singh has invited sharp criticism from TMC leaders for his remarks targeting Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee. Several leaders of the TMC slammed the rural development minister for his comments on Mamata Banerjee dancing with Bollywood stars at the inauguration of the Kolkata Film Festival.

Singh, however, has denied the allegations by the TMC and said that he didn’t use the word “thumka” and that TMC was exaggerating it to confuse people.

Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra said Giriraj Singh’s words against the only woman chief minister of India are shocking. “Mr Singh, the reason we ‘manao jashn’ in Bengal is because we don’t have to put up with the likes of you, the misogyny and patriarchy that is practised by you and the BJP every single day. You will tell Mamata Banerjee what is appropriate and what is not? Let me tell you it’s not appropriate to deprive lakhs and crores of people of Bengal of their MNREGA dues that you and your ministry have withheld,” Mahua Moitra said.

In a video, Giriraj Singh was seen saying that Mamata Banerjee doing ‘thumka’ is not appropriate.

“After PM @narendramodi’s “didi o didi” catcall, Union Minister @girirajsinghbjp now joins the list of @BJP4India leaders who made degrading comments about Smt @MamataOfficial. It’s evident that the BJP leaders find it incredibly hard to fathom a woman in power challenging their authority. Their archaic mindset, steeped in gender biases, is blatantly on display,” the party added.

“Mamata Banerjee is Maa Kali personified. She is the only lady CM in India and people of Bengal have elected her not once, not twice, but thrice,” Mahua Moitra said.

‘Leave it’: Mamata reacts to ‘thumka’ jibe

Mamata Banerjee dismissed Giriraj Singh’s jibe and said her gesture to respect the Bollywood personalities who invited her to dance on the stage. “I don’t know how to dance. Sometimes I dance with tribals to support them. On that day, Anil Kapoor ji took my hand to the stage. We respect Bollywood. Mine was a gesture of respect, nothing else,” Mamata said without giving any importance to Giriraj Singh’s comment.
