A new video of TMC’s Asansol candidate Moon Moon Sen has surfaced in social media wherein she is threatening a journalist for mentioning Babul Supriyo. Supriyo is the Union Minister and BJP candidate for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections from Asansol.
In a shocking video, Sen is seen verbally abusing and threatening to break the camera of ABP News journalist for asking about Supriyo. She was also insensitive in her remarks about victims of poll violence. She said that the journalist should capture photographs of people dying due to violence in West Bengal instead.
“Do not take his name else you have no idea what I will do with the camera. People are dying, go take photographs of them,” Sen remarked angrily.
Reporter- Babul Supriyo ke oopar…

Sen had embroiled herself in a massive controversy just yesterday for advertising her insensitivity and arrogance. She had responded ignorantly to a question by casually saying she was unaware of the violence as her bed tea was delivered late and so she woke up late. West Bengal is among the three states where the elections are spread over all seven phases, wide-scale violence and rigging have been observed in four phases that have concluded so far.
She had also targetted Ajit Anjum, a journalist with TV9 Bharatvarsh for seeking answers on vandalism caused by TMC workers during the elections in her home state West Bengal. Sen took the allegations personally and lost her cool. That’s when she started threatening the TV anchor and said she would file a defamation case against the channel and sue the anchor.
She skipped the interview midway and started abusing the reporter present on the spot. She was also heard accusing the TV anchor of being a BJP supporter. She did not end at that and continued her onslaught by passing a derogatory comment “let him lick BJP ass.”
TMC is notorious for its poll violence. We had reported a few days ago about how the party cadre had indulged in polling malpractices. BJP has alleged that their agents were threatened the previous night and their homes were attacked. A BJP camp office was attacked as well.
