Speaking further, the TMC leader claimed the BJP-led Central government “fears a future India which is comfortable in its own skin, which is comfortable with conflicting realities”
“You are not content with just our vote, you want to get inside our heads, inside our homes, to tell us what to eat, what to wear, who to love. But your fear alone cannot keep the future at bay,” she added.
She said the President’s address is an assessment of the state of the country today, and asked, “What is the kind of Republic we want, what is the idea of India we want to stand up for, fight for, get jailed for? Ours is a living Constitution. Would Netaji have approved of Dharma Sansad?”

“Am speaking this evening in Lok Sabha on President’s Address. Just wanted to give early heads up to BJP to get the heckler team ready and read up on imaginary points of order. Drink some gaumutra shots too,” TMC MP had tweeted.
