Shame on us: Aparna Sen tweets ‘Madam CM’

Kolkata: The murder of a schoolteacher, his pregnant wife and six-year-old son in Bengal’s Murshidabad, which has taken a political turn in the state, drew an impassioned tweet from filmmaker Aparna Sen this morning. “Shame on us,” she said in the post addressed to “Madam CM” or Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Aparna Sen, along with other celebrities who wrote an open letter recently to PM Modi on mob killings, has been accused by critics, including BJP supporters, of “selective outrage”.
