Trinamool serves erotic dance on its foundation day
In a major embarrassment for the West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, some of its party workers were caught throwing money on hired women dancers during the party’s foundation day function on Tuesday.
Reports, Wednesday, said that party’s foundation day function was organised by district level leaders of Trinamool Congress in Bhangore, near Kolkata.
Trinamool zila parishad member Meer Taheer Ali is widely believed to have ranged the women dancers for the celebrations that took place right opposite the local police station.
Though the function in Bhangore triggered a controversy, the party had organized several commemorative programmes across the state to mark Trinamool Congress’ 15th foundation day.
The recording of the programme was also aird on the local television channels.
The controversy comes at a time when the entire nation witnessed muted New year celebrations as a mark of respect for the 23-year-old Delhi student who died 13 days after she was brutally gang-raped and tortured by six men in a moving bus.
The controversy is likely to embarrass the state’s Chief minister particularly at a time when security of women is high on the government’s agenda and clamour for stringent laws to deal with crimes against women is growing louder.
