Mamata lied: TMC student leader who was injured by ‘BJP workers’ admits he was actually injured earlier

Saha has admitted that he was actually injured a few days ago

BJP President Amit Shah’s rally was attacked by Trinamool goons in Kolkata on Tuesday. In the clashes that ensued, a statue of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar was vandalized by miscreants in Vidyasagar College in Kolkata. Ever since the incident, Mamata Banerjee has been accusing the BJP of causing violence although it appears it was Trinamool who started it.

A rather interesting incident transpired in the aftermath of the violence. While Mamata was addressing the press, a certain individual appeared by her side with his hand wrapped up in bandages. It was Tirtha Pratim Saha, a student leader of the Trinamool Chhatra Parishad. The West Bengal CM claimed, in front of the press, that BJP Karyakartas had injured his arm.

However, BJP leaders had claimed that Saha had in fact been injured a few days prior to Amit Shah’s rally in a separate incident. It was further claimed that Mamata was only creating was using an unrelated incident to peddle her preferred narrative. Some people say that he was injured in a bike accident four days ago.

TMC worker Tirtha Pratim Saha

Now, according to a report on Zee News, Saha has admitted that he was actually injured a few days ago. He made the admission while talking to Zee 24 Ghanata, a Bengali news channel of the Zee group. When asked why was the BJP being dragged into the matter, he said he had reached the venue of violence after receiving news about the chaos that was unleashed. Then, he claims, BJP workers attacked him despite seeing his injured hand.

The TMC has been using Tuesday’s violence to peddle regional chauvinism to counter BJP’s rise in the state. It is being claimed that ‘outsiders’ from North Indian states were brought in to unleash violence attack local people. In this particular instance, a fake victim was created to peddle the premeditated narrative. It remains to be seen whether Trinamool achieves any success through it.
