Describing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah as highly communal and terrible in his demeanour and manner of speech, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Sunday strongly objected to his saying that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee looked aged post demonetisation.

“What else can we expect from him? He is highly communal, absolutely terrible and he is making these comments because they (BJP) have looted this country and they are the most corrupt, and now, they are pretending as if they are the angels. They is no way they can fight Mamata Banerjee politically, so they have to indulge in this personal commentary. It shows the kind of low level the BJP stoops to ,” TMC leader Derek O’Brien told ANI.

In a rally conducted yesterday in Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur district, Shah said, “Those who have black money are presently most worried by demonetisation. Have you looked at Mamata Banerjee and Mayawati? They seem aged and seem to have lost their charm. In a single day, their age increased by ten years.”
