Maharashtra BJP leader Prateek Karpe tweeted, ‘Isn’t this an insult to the national anthem? When CM Mamata Banerjee sat down and started the national anthem, what were the alleged intellectuals present there doing. He alleged that the CM had suddenly stopped in the middle.

The Trinamool Congress supremo on Wednesday targeted the Congress in gestures after meeting NCP chief Sharad Pawar. Talking to reporters after the meeting, he said, “A strong choice has to be made, as no one is fighting against the ongoing fascism.” Sharad ji is the senior most leader and I have come here to discuss about political parties. I agree with whatever Sharad ji said. There is no UPA here.” On Tuesday, Banerjee had met Shiv Sena leaders Sanjay Raut and Aaditya Thackeray.
