TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee on Sunday made controversial remarks while criticising Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's handling of the economic crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Equating the Finance Minister with a 'naagin', Banerjee said that just like poisonous snakes kill people, her policies are killing the country's economy. The Lok Sabha MP made the comments while addressing a rally in West Bengal's Bankura organised to protest against fuel hike. The BJP has reacted very sharply to Banerjee's comments and plans to file a complaint. While Bengal BJP President Dilip Ghosh claimed Mamata Banerjee had lost her hold over the party leaders, national spokeserson Sambit Patra called Kalyan Banerjee's comment misogynistic.
