BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya on Sunday took a jibe at the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) after the party fielded Shatrughan Sinha for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Asansol seat. Sharing a rape scene from the actor-turned-politicians old movie, Malviya said the TMC was "full of rapists, both in real (likes of Shahjahan Sheikh) and reel life".

Notably, arrested TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh was accused of sexual harassment by several women of Sandeshkhali.

Sharing a video of Sinha's old film in which he was seen forcing himself on a woman, Malviya wrote, "Meet @ShatruganSinha, TMC’s candidate from Asansol. TMC rank is full of rapists, both in real (likes of Shahjahan Sheikh) and reel life. Surprised Mamata Banerjee didn’t ask Shatrughan Sinha to join her on the eve of International Women’s Day for the sham women empowerment march."
