Scribes face Mamata's ire

Panagarh (WB), Feb 10, 2013, PTI:
After drawing flak for suggesting that security personnel should be whipped, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee again lost her cool, threatening to slap photo-journalists.

The latest tongue lashing from the leader came while inaugurating a festival in Burdwan district on Saturday. “I will slap you, you uncivilised people. Don’t you see it’s cooking here?”(sic) she snapped at photographers who were jostling for space while taking her photo at the “Mati Utsav” (Earth Festival), when she was going round the venue.

The footage went viral on TV channels on Sunday. Mamata had been criticised for shouting at security personnel in the Kolkata Book Fair on February 6 and saying she would ‘whip’ them for making her wait for her car.
