Political drama in Bengal becomes meme gold, inspires hilarious Internet jokes
Highlights

As West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee sat on a dharna along with some of the top cops to ‘save’ police commissioner Rajiv Kumar, netizens got busy with their jokes

Mumbai: While Kolkata police was busy ‘battling’ the Central Bureau of Investigation earlier this week and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sat on a dharna along with some of the top cops to ‘save’ police commissioner Rajiv Kumar from being arrested in connection with the Sarada chit fund scam, netizens started having a ball and flooded the internet with hilarious memes. Amid the ongoing political drama where Mamata Banerjee has declared to fight Modi government's atrocities, funny memes, sarcastic poems, cartoons and trolls are going viral on social media.

For the uninitiated, Jadavpur University Professor Ambikesh Mahapatra was arrested in 2012 for allegedly sharing a cartoon ridiculing the CM. Six years later, social media is flooding with cartoons, memes and trolls which are expected to make the chief minister uncomfortable. In the present scenario, how many can the government take action against?

One meme captured a footage of CM Mamata Banerjee walking restlessly inside the Dharna camp with Gabbar Singh’s dialogue from SholayKitney aadmi they’ playing in the background, while another shows her in the avatar of Saurabh Shukla’s character from the movie Raid, where she is seen asking CBI officer (Ajay Devgn), “Andar toh aa gaye, bahar kaise jaoge?” Another meme featuring photos of Rajiv Kumar and the CM, reads “Kan taanley matha ashey” in Bengali, which translates to “If you pull the ear, you will also be able to access the head.”

Here are some of the memes and trolls which are flooding social media:
