The BJP also slammed Banerjee for maligning Hindus and arrested the matter should be investigated as it is an act to divide people on religious lines. 

Banerjee on March 31 had posted a tweet showing a man allegedly from the VHP’s Ramnavami Shobha Yatra in Howrah brandishing a country-made gun. In the tweet TMC MP had mentioned that it is BJP’s “dangabaji formula” to provoke and instigate communities against each other.

The video was also shared by other TMC MPs, including Mahua Moitra.
