Mamata Banerjee on Saturday warned the Bharatiya Janata Party and its affiliate organisations such as RSS, Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad over playing dirty politics during Durga Puja, asking them "not to play with fire".

Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday said the immersion of Durga's idol should be done from 3:00pm to 8:00pm on the day of Bijoya Dashami, the last day of Durga Puja, the largest religious festival of the Hindu community, reports BSS.

Speaking to ANI, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue Rakesh Sinha said that with the direction Mamata is heading it is an end to her political career.
