Midnapore: West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shyamapada Mondal waded into controversy by calling Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee a 'eunuch' and accused her of practicing politics of appeasement.

"Today, you cannot understand whether Mamata Banerjee is a male or female. I'd say she has become a 'hijra' (eunuch)," he said. This statement has triggered demand for action against him.

Also, earlier this month, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader courted massive controversy by announcing a reward of Rs.11 lakh for West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's head, following a lathi charge at Birbhum district to disperse a rally raising slogans of 'Jai Sri Ram' on Hanuman Jayanti.

"Mamata Banerjee never allows Saraswati Puja, fairs during Ram Navami. During the Hanuman Jayanti procession, people were lathi charged and brutally beaten up. She organizes Iftar party and always supports Muslims," BJYM leader Yogesh Varshney said.

In West Bengal's Birbhum, Suri police on Sunday had already warned the Bir Hanuman Jayanti organizers that it would not allow holding of any rally or meeting at Suri on Tuesday.

The organizers requested and assured the police that they would not carry arms. However, the police did not move from its stand and charged on.
