Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was slammed on Twitter after she announced that family members of Uri martyrs will get compensation of Rs. 2 Lakhs from the state.


Twitterati’s were enraged that while Banerjee had announced compensation of Rs 10 lakh for a pilgrim who lost his life in the Mecca, she is giving a sum of ‘meagre’ Rs. 2 lakh to the families of Uri martyrs.


Following her announcement, many started tweeting with hashtag  so as to express their anger on her apathy and question Banerjee about her ‘discrimination’.


Since the militant attack in Uri on September 18, many states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar have announced compensation for the families of Uri martyrs who belonged to their state.

While Uttar Pradesh CM announced a sum of Rs 20 lakh each to the martyr’s family, Bihar CM had announced sum of Rs. 5 lakh which was later revised to Rs.11 lakh.
