KOLKATA -- A complaint was lodged against West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shyamapada Mondal on Monday for calling Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee a 'eunuch' during a party program at Chandrakona Road on Sunday midnight.

The complaint was filed by Gobind Sai, resident of Dhol village under Chandrakona Road police beat house.

"Today you cannot understand whether Mamata Banerjee is a female or a male. Those who have been eunuchs in trains and buses, I will say our didi (as Banerjee is called) has become an eunuch," he said, while lambasting the Chief Minister for "appeasing" Muslims.

Mondal then described the Trinamool Congress supremo as one with an "unsound mind".

"I will says didi is of unsound mind. May be, after some time, didi will have to be taken to Ranchi (known for its mental asylum)," he said.

The street corner meeting was held at the end of a BJP rally in West Midnapore district's Chanadrakona Road demanding arrest of the Trinamool leaders involved in Saradha chit fund scam and Narada sting footage video, in which around a dozen Trinamool leaders were purportedly seen accepting bundles of notes in lieu of a promise to help a fictitious company.

Trinamool Congress Secretary General Partha Chatterjee said the language used does not gel with Bengal's political culture.

Theatre personality Manoj Mitra wondered why in today's politics, detestable and obscene comments were being made so frequently. "Use of such ugly words have almost become a routine part of speeches," Mitra regretted.

Thespian Rudraprasad Sengupta condemned the comments and asked Prime Minister Narandra Modi why he was not taking action against such BJP leaders who were resorting to such comments so frequently.

Educationist Nrisinghaprasad Bhaduri said: "This is not the language of politics. This sort of language is only used by good-for-nothing people."
