Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan slammed BJP MP Tejasvi Surya after he called the Mamata Banerjee government “autocratic, dictatorial and fascist”.

Nusrat Jahan tweeted, “Mr Tejasvi Surya, instead of making ridiculous statements, run to a mirror right now to figure out who the real fascists are. It’s your bosses at BJP who have destroyed this country with their autocracy and politics of hate since 2014.”


Mr Surya, at a press conference on Monday (November 9), said that he has given a privilege notice to the Lok Sabha Speaker against the top brass of the state administration, following violence at a BJP rally in Howrah.

Tejasvi Surya said, “We will ensure that this autocratic, dictatorship and fascist government of Mamata Banerjee will exit in this election. I ask conscientious Indians who respect and value the Indian Constitution to raise voices against fascism in West Bengal, stand for the rule of law.”

The BJP has intensified its political activities in Bengal ahead of next year’s assembly election.
