In case you haven’t tuned in to news channels in the past few hours, West Bengal is in a state of chaos. And naturally, the chaos has shifted to social media.
Recently, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee sat on a “Save India” dharna in front of Metro Cinema in the heart of Kolkata on Sunday night insisting that the latest CBI action was tantamount to stifling the spirit of “Constitution and federalism” in the country.
The showdown started after the federal probe agency’s officers showed up near the residence of Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar, who has been under the scanner in connection with the CBI probe into the ponzi scheme scam case. Kolkata police officials then came and took away the CBI personnel.
The chief minister further claimed she was asked not to get involved in the case by Kumar and other senior officers of state police but refused as she has never compromised with wrongdoing. Accusing the Centre of trying to stage a “coup” against everyone who speaks against them using the agencies at their disposal, Banerjee claimed that under the current regime, talking against the BJP has become synonymous with going to jail.
While many took to social media to express their views on the situation, there were others who were quick to convert the ongoing in a meme fest.

Mamata also said those who are claiming that there is no law and order in Bengal should come to the state during festivities and carnivals where thousands of people from across the country come together to celebrate without any problems. Several opposition leaders, including Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, DMK’s Kanimozhi, RJD’s Tejaswhi Yadav, have supported Banerjee’s protest.
