A Trinamool Congress minister in West Bengal sparked a controversy today, after one of his security guards was caught on tape tying his shoe laces. Rachpal Singh, the Minister for Planning and Development in Mamata Banerji government, was at the state secretariat for a tribute to artist Ramkinkar Baij, when his personal guard was seen tying his laces.
“Such a thing is unthinkable in the 21st century. This is reflective of the political bankruptcy of the Trinamool Congress and its leaders,” CPI-M leader and former Kolkata mayor Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya told the media.
Social activist Miratun Nahar and theatre personality Kaushik Sen too condemned the incident.
