Singer-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari on Thursday attacked West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and said she has "disgraced" the democracy.

"It is good that she decided not to attend PM Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony. After killing 54 BJP workers with which face she will attend the celebration. She has disgraced the democracy," said Manoj Tiwari when he was asked to comment on West Bengal CM not attending the PM's swearing-in ceremony. 

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday announced that she will not attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing-in on Thursday, alleging the BJP was using the ceremony "to score political points".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to take oath with a new council of ministers on Thursday for a second term. A multi-layered security arrangement is in place in the national capital Delhi. There is deployment of around 10,000 security personnel from Delhi Police and paramilitary forces on account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony which will be attended by foreign dignitaries and chief ministers and governors of several states among others.

Quick Response Teams will be deployed at several crucial spots. Snipers will also be deployed atop several important buildings as Modi will visit Rajghat, Sadaiv Atal Samadhi and National War Memorial on Thursday to pay homage, a senior police official said.

"Over 10,000 security personnel from Delhi Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed on account of the swearing-in-ceremony," the official said, reported PTI.
