‘Mamata Banerjee & PM Modi practicing same politics of communalism’: Owaisi

After West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee said she hailed from the 'Shandilya' lineage, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said political parties have always vying to prove who among them is the bigger Hindu and this is not good for a secular and democratic India. Owaisi said: "Throughout her election campaigning, Mamata Banerjee has been reciting Chandi Path and Durga Paths. Now she said that her Gotra is Shandliya and she is a Hindu Brahmin. If she is saying that she belongs to the upper caste in a state where 27 per cent are Muslims and 22 per cent are Dalits. Where should Muslims and Dalits of West Bengal go, who are not part of the 'varna' system? She's practicing PM Modi & BJP's politics of communalism. They are made for each other."
