Mahua Moitra appeared fixated on the ‘Chaddi army’ whereas attempting to place up a fallible defence for doubtful fact-checker Mohammed Zubair.
“Mystery of 1 follower Twitter a/c on which Delhi police took suo moto action against @zoo_bear solved. @thewire_in reports 757 Twitter accounts linked to Tek Fogg App, BJYM Guj leader did coordinated attacks against AltNews. Delhi Police just another arm of Chaddi Army,” she wrote.

It is notable right here that Tek Fogg was an imaginary app that the far Left web site The Wire has claimed offers superpowers to the BJP to focus on dissenting voices. The Tek Fogg was a figment of The Wire’s creativeness. It by no means existed. The Wire’s articles declaring the superpowers of the Tek Fogg app now stand withdrawn.
Mahua Moitra and Gaumutra jibes
The TMC chief has been notorious for scoring political brownies on the expense of the Hindu neighborhood. The dehumanising language utilized by her for Hindu nationalists and RSS staff is a sworn statement to it.
Despite being properly conscious that ‘cow piss drinkers’ was utilized by terrorist Adil Ahmad Dar earlier than the Pulwama suicide bombing assault, Mahua Moitra was seen casually invoking the Hinduphobic time period.
In February 2022, she made the ‘Gau Mutra’ jibe to mock the Modi authorities. The TMC MP had tweeted, “Am speaking this evening in Lok Sabha on President’s Address.”
Am talking this night in Lok Sabha on President’s Address.
Just needed to provide early heads as much as @BJP to get heckler workforce prepared & learn up on imaginary factors of order. Drink some gaumutra photographs too.

“Just wanted to give early heads up to @BJP to get the heckler team ready & read up on imaginary points of order. Drink some gau mutra shots too,” Mahua Moitra remarked.
In May 2021, she stirred controversy by calling India the ‘Susu Potty Republic’. Then too, she had used the cow urine jibe to assault the central authorities.
Screengrab of the tweet by Mahua Moitra
Until now, Mahua Moitra had a free run when it got here to abusing, belittling and dehumanising the Hindu neighborhood. But Indian political historical past is replete with examples whereby politicians, who took Hindus for a journey, noticed a untimely finish to their political ambitions.
Mahua Moitra has typically discovered her at loggerheads with the TMC supremo, Mamata Banerjee. She occurs to be one of many few TMC heavyweights, who confronted the wrath of the West Bengal CM in full public glare.
Moitra is usually in information, not for performing her duties as an elected consultant from West Bengal, however for her foul mouth jibes and noisy theatrics in Delhi. Though the political frustration may be defined, the rationale for her unhealthy obsession with male underwear of a selected color will not be recognized.
