Mamata Banerjee livid with party workers over Vande Mataram? False claim, old video

*पश्चिम बंगाल की मुख्यमंत्री ममता बनर्जी अपने पार्टी कार्यकर्ताओं के साथ बैठक कर रही थीं और उन्होंने वंदेमातरम् का जिक्र नहीं करने का निर्देश दिया, लेकिन पार्टी ने उनकी सलाह का गुस्से से विरोध किया और वंदेमातरम् का जाप करना शुरू कर दिया और पूरे कार्यालय को नष्ट कर दिया। अंततः राष्ट्र के लिए बंगाली हिन्दू भी जाग रहा है।*

*कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता कि कितनी शिद्दत से अन्य राजनीतिक दल और उनके नेता भारत को विभाजित करने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं, भारतीयों को यह भी धीरे धीरे समझ आ ही जाएगा..इस संदेश को आगे बढ़ाएं ताकि पूरे भारत को इस देशद्रोही, मुख्यमंत्री की सच्चाई का पता चले ।*

Translation: WB CM Mamata Banerjee was meeting party workers, and she directed them not to mention Vande Mataram, but the party angrily opposed her, started chanting Vande Mataram and destroyed the entire office. The Bengali Hindu is now rising. 

It doesnt matter how passionately different political parties and their leaders are trying to divide the country, Indians will gradually understand. Spread this message further so that the entire country knows the truth of this anti-national Chief Minister. 

A video of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has gone viral on social media and messaging platforms, along with the above message. The video shows a livid Mamata Banerjee yelling at those standing around her. This is followed by visuals of people ransacking the place. It has been claimed that Banerjee had called a meeting of party workers, where a row over Vande Mataram broke out, and the party workers, in defiance of their supremo, ransacked the party office and raised Vande Mataram slogans.

Several individual users have uploaded the video on Facebook with an identical message.

The video has been shared in droves on WhatsApp as well. Some users had requested Alt News for verification of the video and the accompanying claim.

Video was shot in 2006

The claim circulating along with the video clip is absolutely false. The video in question was shot in 2006. The place is the West Bengal assembly. It may be recalled that protests had taken place in West Bengal that year over the proposal by Tata Motors to set up a manufacturing plant in Singur for the Tata Nano car. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) led by Mamata Banerjee, which was then in the opposition, had been at the forefront of the agitation. TMC workers had ransacked the West Bengal assembly building as part of the protest.

The same had been broadcast by NDTV in a video report of December 1, 2006. A screenshot of the same is posted below.

Alt News found that the same video has also been shared with the false claim that it portrays an angry Mamata Banerjee, following demonetization which took place in November 2016.

It may be reiterated that the video in question was shot in 2006 and pertains to the protest over the Singur controversy. It has nothing to do with Vande Mataram. The claim circulating on messaging and social media platforms is false.
