Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], February 20 (HBTV): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying that the party thinks that every person wearing a turban is a "Khalistani". 



This outburst came after a confrontation between protesting BJP workers and the police at Dhamakhali, during which a senior police official lost his cool when some protesters allegedly called him "Khalistani." 



‘Today, the BJP's divisive politics has shamelessly overstepped constitutional boundaries. As per BJP every person wearing a turban is a Khalistani,’ the chief minister stated in a post on X. 



The chief minister also attached a video of the verbal spat showing the police officer sternly protesting the BJP workers’ remarks and for labeling him "Khalistani" for wearing a turban.    



Condemning the incident, Banerjee said, "I vehemently condemn this audacious attempt to undermine the reputation of our Sikh brothers and sisters, revered for their sacrifices and unwavering determination to our nation. We stand firm in protecting Bengal's social harmony and will take stern lawful measures to prevent any attempts to disrupt it."
