BJP MLA Surendra Singh has compared Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with a demon "Lankini" and called her "chief" of demons.
He alleged that Ms Banerjee is protecting terrorists who killed thousands of Hindus.
"In a democratic society, Mamata Banerjee has traits of a demon. She has no human values and no women characteristics. She is giving protection to those who killed thousands of Hindus. That's why we can call her demon and not a human. She is like the Lankini of Sri Lanka," Mr Singh told news agency ANI referring to the Trinamool Congress protest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Kolkata visit and the amended Citizenship law.
"In Bengal, Mamata Banerjee is not a leader but a Lankini. BJP won 18 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal, now the party will sweep assembly polls in Bengal. India is a party of God. And SP, BSP, TMC are parties of demons. Giving protection to terrorists means protecting demons. We can call her chief of demons," the BJP legislator from Ballia added.
