Union Home Minister Amit Shah has sought a report from the West Bengal government over the incident of violence between BJP and TMC workers at North 24 Pargana district on Saturday in which reportedly six people lost their lives, included five BJP workers and one TMC worker.
Union Home Minister has asked for a report from the state government and I am sure Centre will take this up seriously. There is a lot of anger among the people over the incident, said BJP leader Mukul Roy.
He alleged that four workers of the BJP were shot dead by members of the TMC in Basirhat’s Sandeshkhali.
The removal of party flags had triggered the fight, claimed a BJP supporter.
Roy added, “TMC goons attacked BJP workers and four of our workers were shot dead in Sandeshkhali, Basirhat. Their leader and Chief Minister is indulging in a reign of terror, we have sent a message to Home Minister Amit Shah ji, Kailash Vijayvargiya ji, and our state leaders.”
Earlier, widespread violence involving the BJP and the TMC was witnessed during Lok Sabha elections in West Bengal, with both parties trading blame over the issue.
