Make Marwaris open "business" only in Rajasthan. 75% of India's problems solved. Give Gujaratis contracts & tenders only in Gujarat. 100% of India's problems solved.”

Among those who were furious with the xenophobic rant was Kumar Vishwas who asked Mamata to take immediate action.

He wrote: “Immediate action is required against this person for insulting the citizens of Bihar-UP and for poisoning against the federal nature of the country @MamataOfficial @WBPolice Otherwise it will be understood that this is your political experiment against the unity of the country . Report @TwitterIndia to suspend this account.”

His Twitter bio reads: “Brain scientist. Columnist. Bangla Pokkho. Bengali Nationalist. Harvard PhD. Professor. Federalist. Sometimes I give back as good as I get.”
