Violence against political rivals is on a rise under the Mamata government in West Bengal. Recently a TMC MLA  Sovan Chatterjee and his friend Baishakhi Chatterjee was confined to a bungalow as there were speculations of him and his friend joining the BJP. His friend Baishakhi Chatterjee was also given rape threats.

Last year in the month of May, a 6-month pregnant woman who was relative of a BJP candidate in Panchayat Elections in West Bengal, was allegedly raped by TMC activists in Nadia district.

Last year TMC had won 20,000 seats uncontested in West Bengal Panchayat elections amidst the allegations that the party which fielded its candidates on all rural seats, had prevented filing of nominations by resorting to violence. The BJP had moved the Supreme Court to interfere in the matter of its party workers not being allowed to file nominations for the Panchayat elections.
