TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee triggered a massive political controversy with his remarks against Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharmana, in which he equated her to "Kaali Nagin (Venomous snake)". Addressing a gathering in West Bengal's Bankura on Saturday, the Trinamool Congress MP had said that people were dying because of the finance minister in the same way they die due to the bite of 'Kala Nagin'.

Banerjee also termed Sitharaman "the worst finance minister" and demanded her resignation over the poor state of India's economy.

"The way people die due to bite of 'Kaali Nagini'(venomous snake), same way, people are dying due to Nirmala Sitharaman. She has destroyed the economy. She should be ashamed and resign from her post. She is the worst Finance Minister," the TMC MP said.

The BJP has condemned Banerjee's remarks against the finance minister and termed them misogynistic. Speaking to news agency ANI, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that the remarks were made in a state where Goddess Kali is worshiped and that they were not only racist but also misogynistic.
