People blasted at mamata for her”ashamed of being born in India” comment

Expressing anguish after being called names by a BJP leader, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said she “feels ashamed of being born in India.”

“I feel ashamed of being born in India….all states can be silenced but Bengal will not be silenced, no matter how much fear you create Delhi,” Mamata said in reference to the BJP-ruled Centre.

She was reacting to untoward remarks made against her by a BJP leader last month.

But her comment on being born in India has invited sharp remarks from the opposition and social media.
