As TMC MP Mahua Moitra has courted controversy with her 'Kali' remark inviting cases against her and her own party has distanced itself from the matter. Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy said speaking in the matter said that the party has not taken any decision regarding taking disciplinary action.

"The party's still considering and will make a decision at an appropriate time," he said.

"We have not taken any decision regarding taking disciplinary action. The party's still considering and will make a decision at an appropriate time," Saugata Roy was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Meanwhile, party supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee commenting on the matter said 'people make mistakes but they can be rectified'.

"We make mistakes while working but they can be rectified. Some people don't see all the good work and suddenly start shouting... Negativity affects our brain cells so let's think positively," said Mamata while addressing a students' credit cards distribution event in Kolkata.

TMC distanced itself and said in a tweet that the comments made by Moitra and her views expressed on Goddess Kali have been made in her personal capacity "and are NOT ENDORSED BY THE PARTY in ANY MANNER OR FORM. All India Trinamool Congress strongly condemns such comments."

On Wednesday, Moitra dared the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to prove that whatever she said is wrong.

An FIR has been registered in Bhopal against Moitra under section 295A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for hurting religious sentiments. She had called Kali "meat-eating" and "alcohol-accepting"
