Union Minister and BJP MP Babul Supriyo was denied entry into parts of his own Asansol constituency in West Bengal, which have been marred by communal violence since the attack on a Ram Navami procession on Monday.

The situation has remained tense since then, with reports claiming that two people died in the violence on Thursday. This took the total deaths in the state owing to Ram Navami clashes to five. The state administration amongst it actions, imposed section 144 in Asansol and also suspended the internet services in the area.

As per reports, Supriyo, while trying to enter Railpar region, faced opposition from a group of people who demanded that he leave the area immediately. Supriyo had initially visited some of his constituents, a section of which then egged him to visit the areas affected by the violence.

He also alleged that he was abused by TMC workers, who also threatened the victims of the communal violence:

Earlier during the initial days of the communal violence, which included senior police officers being attacked with bombed, Supriyo had put the blame on the ‘minority community’ for the said violence and also alleged that they were being given a safe haven to escape following their attack.
