West Bengal police baton-charges BJP workers to stop them from taking out Vijay Sankalp bike rally

Several BJP workers were injured in attack by West Bengal police

The West Bengal lathi-charged and baton-charged BJP workers on Sunday to stop them from carrying out Vijay Sankalp bike rally which was kick-started by BJP President Amit Shah. The BJP workers were prevented from carrying out the bike rally in different parts of the State on the ground of ongoing board exams.

According to reports, the BJP workers went ahead with the bike rally despite being denied permission by the administration. This led to violent clashes between the police and the BJP workers at Durgapur and Asansol in Wets Burdwan district, Midnapore town and Goaltore in West Midnapore and Balurghat in South Dinajpur where the rallies were taken out. The police said that they stopped the BJP workers from taking out the rallies as there is a ban in the State on taking out public rallies due to ongoing board exams.

BJP State President Dilip Ghosh tweeted the pictures of the BJP workers who were injured due to attack by police using batons.

Ghosh said that the bike rallies will continue despite the police action. “Hundreds of Sankalp yatras are being held in the country and in Bengal also. It will be held even if police arrest us,” said Ghosh. Bike rallies are a part of the pre-poll campaign of BJP to establish contact with the people.
