A T-shirt that reads ‘India’s Biggest Pappu’ with a cartoon figure resembling Union Home minister Amit Shah is turning out to be a head-turner.

The T-shirt campaign has been launched by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) as part of a scathing attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) — ruling party at the Centre. And it is catching up.

The drive took a new turn with Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’ Brien donning it as he travelled from Kolkata to Delhi. A photo of O’ Brien sporting the T-shirt near the Parliament has gone viral on social media.


O’ Brein said, “He (Amit Shah) has earned the title because the administration, the police, law and order are under him and he has failed. He has instead become a puppeteer for the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Respected institutions like the CRPF and the BSF are not doing well under him.”

He added, “He (Shah) is Modi’s most incompetent minister. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) too is going only to states where there are non-BJP parties. He hurts the poor and protects the corrupt. What to talk about Har Ghar Tiranga; he can’t even do Apna Ghar Tiranga as he can’t convince his son to be a flag-bearer. The maximum number of corruption complaints were registered against the home ministry last year.”

Addressing the media outside the ED office in Salt Lake, TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee said, “India’s biggest pappu is Amit Shah – he doesn’t want any Opposition but wants to score a goal in an empty field. He ensures that the ED and the CBI is unleashed upon all non-BJP ruled states. We will not back down.”

He said this after being questioned for eight hours on the cattle smuggling case recently.

“I will request the media friends to stop calling it cattle smuggling scam, coal scam rather call it a ‘Home Minister scam’. If someone is to be held responsible for this, it is only the Home Minister…”.

The T-shirts are being sported by many prominent political figures of TMC. And the rage is raging.
