As Trinamool Congress is facing a serious challenge from the Bharatiya Janata Party in West Bengal, the Trinamool party leaders have begun to express their frustration out in public either through vandalism or by making slanderous statements against people who question them.

The violence and intimidation are not limited to opposition party cadres alone but also against journalists, who are questioning Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress for unchecked violence in the state during the Lok Sabha elections.

Actor-turned-politician Moon Moon Sen who had advertised her insensitivity and arrogance by saying that she was unaware of the violence as she got up very late because she got her bed tea late, targetted TV9 Bharatvarsh journalist Ajit Anjum for seeking answers for vandalism that TMC had inflicted during the fourth phase of elections in West Bengal.

Moon Moon Sen after taking allegations personally, lost her cool and started threatening the TV Anchor saying she would file a defamation case against the channel and sue the anchor.

She ran away from the interview and began abusing the reporter present at the spot. She was also heard accusing the TV anchor of being a BJP supporter while making a cheap comment “let him lick BJP ass”.

The arrogance of TMC leaders is not just limited to Moon Moon Sen. Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha leader and close aide of Mamata Banerjee has a history of abusing and intimidating journalists and social media users. Soon after 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he had called a journalist as “a** licker right-wing” journalist.

Mahua Moitra, a TMC MLA had shown journalist Arnab Goswami her middle finger when she was questioned after TMC workers had beat up the 25-year-old for slapping Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

Like TMC leaders, the cadres of the TMC are notoriously known for vandalism and political violence against opposition party workers and journalists. It has also been widely reported in the media on how workers allegedly belonging to TMC were hurling bombs and indulging in proxy voting at polling booths during the Lok Sabha elections.

The TMC workers did not limit their attack to their opponents but also targetted journalists and reporters who were covering their electoral malpractices. Shantashree, a journalist from Republic TV who was reporting from Asansol along with their video journalist were travelling when TMC goons allegedly attacked the car with lathis and broke the window.

India Today’s crew was also allegedly attacked by TMC goons and their journalist Manogya Loiwal manhandled.

West Bengal under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee has been one of the most intolerant states in the country in the last five years. It continues to remain one of the most violent states when it comes to poll violence under Mamata Banerjee led TMC government.

With TMC’s hegemony taking a huge hit a with the entry of BJP in the state, Mamata Banerjee led TMC will try asserting more power in the state by indulging in furthermore direct violent attacks not only on the opposition camp, especially the BJP but also on others who attempt to hold Mamata Banerjee responsible for actions.
