The Rajasthan CM further said, “declaration to disrespect the High Court order is judicial contempt, which is extremely reprehensible and unfortunate. It proves that she has no respect for the dignity of democracy and the dignity of law. For her, only Muslim appeasement is paramount.”

Overall, it is clear that for Mamata Banerjee, appeasing the Muslim vote bank and furthering the agenda of the Muslim League are her top priorities,” he said.
