Death anniversary of Shyama Prasad Mookerjee observed

first_imgKolkata: For the first time, the Mamata Banerjee government has decided to observe the death anniversary of Bharatiya Jana Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerjee on Saturday. Ministers Firhad Hakim and Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay would attend the programme before Mookerjee’s bust at South Kolkata’s Keoratala crematorium, according to the formal invite issued by the Information and Cultural Affairs Department. Chattopadhyay said Mookerjee would never have approved the BJP’s communal agenda for the sake of getting political mileage. “The way BJP is bringing religion into the political arena, and indulging in the politics of polarisation to create an atmosphere of hatred, and gain political mileage, I don’t think Shyama Prasad would have approved all this,” he said.last_img
