Is Amit Shah God That None Can Protest Against Him, Asks Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah, asking if he were a god that no one can protest against him.
Ms Banerjee said this after supporters of the BJP and her Trinamool Congress (TMC) fought pitched battles on the streets of Kolkata during a roadshow by Mr Shah.

A college named after Iswarchandra Vidyasagar, a key figure in the Bengal renaissance, was ransacked and a bust of the 19th century social reformer shattered allegedly by BJP workers during the clashes.

“What does Amit Shah think of himself? Is he above everything? Is he God that no one can protest against him?” Ms Banerjee told reporters after visiting the Vidyasagar College in north Kolkata.

“They are so uncultured that they have broken the bust of Vidyasagar. They are all outsiders. They BJP had brought them to be used on the day of polls,” she said.
