Following clashes at BJP President Amit Shah’s roadshow in West Bengal, actor Vivek Oberoi criticised state CM Mamata Banerjee saying that he can’t understand why is she behaving like former Iraq President Saddam Hussein.
Bollywood actor and ostensibly a BJP supporter Vivek Oberoi on Wednesday tweeted wondering aloud why Mamata Banerjee is acting like Saddam Hussein in West Bengal.
He took pot shots at the West Bengal Chief Minister saying, “Ironically, democracy is under threat and in danger by Dictator Didi herself.” Further condemning actions against BJP leaders, he said, “Yeh Didigiri nahi chalegi.”
Vivek Oberoi referred to the episode of BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga allegedly detained by the Kolkata police on Tuesday, hours after clashes erupted between BJP and Trinamool workers at Amit Shah‘s roadshow.
Vivek Oberoi, whose movie ‘PM Narendra Modi’, a biopic on the incumbent Prime Minister, is slated to release on May 24.
