The era of intolerance is on: Mamata Banerjee
In her address, Mamta Banerjee said that the era of political intolerance is going on in the country, which is unfortunate. According to the constitution, the representatives of the people should work for the welfare of the people. There should be no discrimination on the basis of religion, community or caste and polarization. But, what are we experiencing? On the contrary, we are seeing people’s rights being snatched away.
