TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee sparks controversy after relating Hathras horror to Hindu deities

A 19-year-old Dalit girl was gang-raped and was subjected to brutality before she died in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras district. The police brutality in this case also garnered attention. TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee has now stoked a row. The MP was speaking at a public meeting in Barackpore in West Bengal, where he made this controversial remark. Kalyan Banerjee was talking about the deteriorating situation of law and order in the BJP ruled states. Kalyan Banerjee has compared the Hathras rape case to Hindu deities Ram and Sita. Bhartiya Janata Party has responded to this analogy and said that the Hindu sentiments have been hurt. TMC, however, has not responded back on this response. Watch!
