BJP alleges attack by TMC cadre ahead of PM Modi’s West Bengal rally, say Modi posters replaced with Mamata posters

A scuffle broke out between Trinamool Congress (TMC) cadres and BJP workers when the former pulled down hoardings and banners announcing PM Modi’s rally in the state. The BJP workers have complained that TMC workers on Friday had attacked them and replaced PM Modi’s posters with Mamata Banerjee’s posters.

The brawl comes ahead of PM Modi’s rally in West Bengal’s Durgapur which is scheduled to take place later today at 2 pm. Many BJP posters welcoming PM Modi were also smeared with dirt. BJP Minister Babul Supriyo expressed his shock on Twitter by claiming the vandalism carried out by TMC workers as “heights of indecency”.

Tensions have soared in the area since then. BJP workers have accused TMC workers of indulging in violence against them for protesting the removal of PM Modi’s posters.

Prime Minister Modi is in West Bengal to launch a nearly 300 km-long electrified stretch of the Railways, comprising the Andal-Sainthia-Pakur-Malda and the Khana-Sainthia sections. He will also be inaugurating the 20 km-long Hijli-Narayangarh third line.

This is not the first time Mamata Banerjee led TMC has attempted to impede rallies conducted by the BJP. Earlier, Mamata Banerjee used legal machinery to persistently disallow the Rath-yatras to be conducted by the BJP under the pretext of it giving rise to communal tensions in the state. Amit Shah had then alleged that the Mamata Banerjee led TMC government in the West Bengal has resorted to undemocratic measures to obstruct BJP from conducting rallies in the state.
