Singh told reporters, "There is defect in the DNA of Mamata Banerjee, and she hails from a demoness culture (Mamata Banerjee ke DNA mein dosh hai, woh raakshashi sanskriti ki hai). No demon can love Lord Ram. Mamata Banerjee is a dishonest and evil (shaitan) person. Her hatred for Lord Ram is natural".
Singh added that the violence and murder unleashed allegedly by members of the TMC in West Bengal provide further proof of their "evil" act.
