NEW DELHI: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday hit out at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, asking her "to fight the brazen growth of Hindutva" in the state.

"Mamata Banerjee may have pressure to appeal to majoritarianism these days & that's why this fixation on me. BUT please do your job & fight the brazen growth of Hindutva in Bengal. False equivalence between mobs & those resisting them, isn't helping anyone," Owaisi tweeted citing a media report of the incident.
