Kolkata, Nov 19: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee while addressing a rally in Cooch Behar in West Bengal on Monday came up with a controversial statement lashing out at All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi.

The news agency ANI quoted Mamata's statement, as she said, "Extremism is coming out among the minorities, just as there are extremists among the Hindus. There is a political party and they are taking money from the BJP, they are from Hyderabad, not from West Bengal."

Countering the Bengal CM Owaisi on Tuesday took on to Twitter and wrote, "if Didi is worried about a bunch of us from Hyderabad then she should tell us how BJP won 18/42 LS seats from Bengal."

The AIMIM chief also wrote that it's not religious extremism to say that Bengal's Muslims have one of the worst human development indicators of any minority.

On Tuesday the AIMIM official Twitter page tweeted, "Power has made Mamta Banerjee and her party TMC arrogant. Despite Muslims voting for the TMC, BJP won 18 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal. So, which extremism won? Perhaps, she should do an introspection."

"What is extremism? Extremism is when you don't empower the Muslims, give them their rightful share, education and reservations, don't allow a political leadership to emerge. Mamta Banerjee is practicing this extremism," AIMIM tweeted.

BJP succeeded to win good numbers of seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The BJP won 18 seats out of the 42 West Bengal parliamentary seats.
