This is not the first time that Mamta got angry with the slogan of Jai Shri Ram. Earlier, on January 23 last year, on the occasion of the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Mamta was infuriated in front of everyone for raising slogans of Jai Shri Ram in a program organized by the Union Ministry of Culture at the Victoria Memorial in Kolkata. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also present in that program. Mamta had expressed a lot of displeasure about this in front of the PM and said that it is not right to insult someone in this way by calling them in a government program. Despite the death of his mother, PM Modi on Friday inaugurated various railway projects in Bengal through video conferencing. The PM gifted various railway projects worth more than Rs 7,600 crore to the state, including flagging off Bengal's first Vande Bharat train running between Howrah to Jalpaiguri.
