Many people took the opportunity to attack Ms. Banerjee on the Park Street rape case. Last week, the court had declared three accused guilty of gang raping Suzette Jordan – an incident Ms. Banerjee had called “sajano ghotona” or fabricated incident.
The tweet that perhaps tried to explain the harsh reaction was this:
@MamataOfficial@ArvindKejriwal “chorchormauserabhai”. If you support Laloo how can anyone trust you that you are honest.
