West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the present day condemned and apologised for her minister’s feedback on President Droupadi Murmu. Saying it’s not in her celebration’s tradition to make private feedback, she added the MLA has been cautioned over his feedback and her celebration has additionally apologised.
“We respect the President loads. She is a really candy girl, I apologise for the feedback,” Ms Banerjee stated, including that “Akhil (Giri) has performed one thing mistaken; I condemn the feedback and I apologise.
“Magnificence shouldn’t be about the way you look, it’s about how you’re from the within,” she added.
West Bengal BJP MLAs marched to the Raj Bhavan this afternoon in protest in opposition to the distasteful feedback by Trinamool minister Akhil Giri on the President of India. The BJP MLAs have been heard singing songs and have been led by Chief of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari.
After the video clip of his feedback went viral, Mr Giri had apologised for making such a comment.
In a 17-second video clip, Mr Giri was heard commenting on the “seems to be of the President”.
“They (BJP) stated that I’m not handsome. We do not decide anybody by their look. We respect the workplace of the President (of India). However how does our President look?” Mr Giri, the minister of state for Correctional Properties, was heard saying at a rally in a village in Nandigram late on Friday night.
Calling the feedback “irresponsible”, the celebration had distanced itself from Mr Giri’s remarks. “That is an irresponsible remark & does NOT characterize the views of @AITCofficial. We’re extraordinarily happy with the President of India & maintain her & her workplace within the highest regard,” TMC spokesperson Saket Gokhale had tweeted earlier.
