Howrah/New Delhi: A police complaint was filed against Priyanka Sharma, BJYM worker, for posting a photoshopped image of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on her Facebook account. The Mamata government has always accused the BJP government at the Centre of being intolerant but has played by its own rules within Bengal.

The image that was shared on Facebook was that of Mamata's face superimposed over Priyanka Chopra's recent Met Gala attire. A complaint was immediately filed against Sharma, whose Facebook profile describes her as 'Howrah district club cell convenor at Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha-BJYM'.

A tolerance vs intolerance debate erupted on social media and people were quick to point out that this move by the Mamata Banerjee led TMC government was cowardly. Priyanka was taken into police custody following the complaint.

#IsupportPriyankaSharma started trending on social media and many people took to social media to call out the Mamata led TMC government.

Calling out Mamata's hypocrisy, BJP's nominee for South Bangalore, Tejasvi Surya, expressed his displeasure in a tweet and compared the situation to when a Congress worker has posted a morphed image of Narendra Modi with a Hitler moustache.
