As per reports, violence was reported from districts like Birbhum, Murshidabad, Hooghly and Bankura on Tuesday. BJP district general secretary Kalosona Mondal alleged that he was attacked with a knife by TMC workers when he and other party workers were coming out of DM’s office after submitting a deputation against the ruling party.

BJP leader Surajit Ghosh alleged that they were attacked in presence of the police and questioned as to how could TMC workers bring sharp weapons in a government building.

Incidentally, the Congress too has accused the TMC of not letting opposition candidates file their nomination papers. As per West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the dates of the rural polls were announced suddenly, so that opposition parties could not file their nominations. Chowdhury has also alleged that the election has been reduced to a farce.

Another senior Congress leader of Bengal claimed that they won’t be able to field candidates in all the seats for polls, both in the Gram Panchayat and Zila Panchayat elections.
