Dilip Ghosh’s ‘Wear Bermudas’ remark for Mamata sparks outrage
West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh mocked Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for highlighting her leg injury and said that she should wear bermudas if she wanted to display her legs.
Dilip Ghosh said, “She is wearing saree with one leg covered but kept another kept open for viewing. Haven’t seen anyone draping a saree in such a way. If she has to display her leg for viewing, she can very well wear bermuda shorts. That will help to have a better view.”
The TMC vehemently slammed Dilip Ghosh comments with one of its leaders calling him a "pervert".
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) said in a Twitter post in Bengali, “We can expect such distasteful comments only from Dilip Ghosh. His deplorable comments about a woman chief minister prove Bengal BJP leaders don’t know how to show respect to women”.
Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar said in a tweet, “It now appears that the role of @BJP4Bengal State President has been merely reduced to that of venom-spitting”.
TMC MP Mahua Moitra’s tweet on Dilip Ghosh’s remark said “@BJP WB Pres asks in public meeting why Mamatadi is wearing a saree, she should be wearing Bermuda shorts to display her leg better. And these perverted... (people) think they are going to win Bengal?”
Earlier, the BJP claimed that Mamata Banerjee was faking an injury to get public sympathy in a losing battle.
