PANJI, Oct 27: Several hoardings carrying pictures of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee were defaced in Goa ahead of her visit to the coastal state, following which the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday condemned the act and claimed it reflects the BJP's "intolerance".

Banerjee is scheduled to visit Goa on Friday, ahead of the state Assembly polls due next year.

The TMC has already announced its decision to contest the state Assembly elections.

The BJP on Sunday claimed the Goa unit of the Trinamool Congress posted a cartoon on Twitter that showed party supremo Mamata Banerjee trying to crush Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant under her foot.

A statement by Goa CM Pramod Sawant's office claimed the tweet by the Banerjee-led party was deleted immediately.

The CMO had circulated the screenshot of the purported tweet. Later, a number of posters and hoardings, put up by the TMC, carrying pictures of Banerjee were vandalised in the coastal state.
