CPM, BJP slam Mamata Banerjee for Namaz advertisement
Kolkata After sparking off a political row with her remarks on the killing of Naxal leader Azad, Railways Minister Mamata Banerjee now finds herself in the middle of another controversy.

This time, it's a railway advertisement with her picture offering Namaz in the backdrop of Islamic motifs - a crescent moon, a star and the outlines of a mosque.

What's raising eyebrows is the use of a railway advertisement for catching Muslim votes.

Both the CPM and BJP are accusing Mamata of using public money to exploit religious sentiments for political gain.
