: BJP youth wing convenor Priyanka Sharma on Wednesday said she was illegally kept in jail for five days despite being granted bail by the Supreme Court of India for posting a Mamata Banerjee meme. Launching a scathing attack on West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, the BJYM leader said the state government doesn’t allow freedom of speech which is a clear violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the country.

Priyanka Sharma was released from Alipore jail after the Supreme Court on Wednesday pulled up the West Bengal government for not releasing her immediately despite its order on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court granted her bail.

However, Priyanka refused to apologise to Mamata Banerjee for putting an objectionable picture of the CM on social media.
