Kolkata. Recently, Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have targeted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for mispronouncing the names of two eminent spiritual leaders of the Matua community in a public meeting. Union Minister, BJP MP, and Matua community leader Shantanu Thakur (BJP MP Shantanu Thakur) attacked CM Mamta Banerjee. Raising the question, he said that Mamta Banerjee herself is Sarvan. Is that why the names of SC leaders were made fun of. Although Mamta Banerjee had apologized for taking the wrong word in the meeting of Bolpur on Wednesday.
CM Mamata Banerjee had wrongly named ‘Harichand Thakur and Guruchand Thakur’ of the Matua community’s God in Malda’s meeting on 31 January. He had called ‘Raghunath Thakur and Goruchand Thakur’. At the same time, the Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Legislative Assembly, Shubhendu Adhikari (Suvendu Adhikari) also strongly criticized CM Mamta Banerjee. Shubhendu Adhikari tweeted on Twitter, “The Chief Minister has insulted the entire Matua community by mispronouncing the names of the most respected spiritual leaders.”
পরম পূজনীয় পূর্ণব্রহ্ম পূর্ণাবতার শ্রীশ্রী হরিচাঁদ ঠাকুর ও শ্রীশ্রী গুরুচাঁদ ঠাকুরের নাম বিকৃত করে মতুয়া ও নমঃশূদ্র সমাজকে অপমানিত করেছেন মাননীয়া। সারাজীবন মতুয়া সমাজকে ভোট ব্যাঙ্ক ভেবেছেন, মন থেকে যে সম্মান করেন নি তা আপনার এই অজ্ঞতা থেকে প্রমাণ পায়। তীব্র নিন্দা জানাই। pic.twitter.com/06Gkc4TO6D

While detailing the development works done by his government for the welfare of the community, the CM mentioned the names of two eminent Matua spiritual leaders in the public meeting, but mispronounced their names. This public meeting was organized on January 31 at Gazole in Malda district. Shubhendu Adhikari tweeted that he has considered the Matua community as a vote bank throughout his life. His ignorance proved that he never respected the people of the community from the heart. I strongly condemn it.
Shubhendu Adhikari shared the video
In the post, Shubhendu Adhikari also shared a video of the public meeting, in which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee can be heard mispronouncing the names of two spiritual leaders. Although TMC is still keeping silence on this incident. Let us tell you that Matuas are refugees from Bangladesh coming from Scheduled Caste background and make a significant contribution as voters in parts of North 24 Parganas, Nadia and Malda districts.
