Violence continues in West Bengal: TMC goons assault BJP leaders, attack house and car

A week ago, the TMC goons had also attacked the cavalcade of BJP leaders Himanta Biswa Sharma and Dilip Ghosh in Kanthi Lok Sabha constituency.

BJP leader Arvind Menon and some district leaders were attacked by TMC goons last night. As per a report in Times Now, Menon was holding a meeting with the district BJP leaders in Barasat at the residence of one of the leaders when TMC goons allegedly barged into the house.

As per reports, Menon’s meeting with the district BJP leaders was scheduled to be held at a hotel. But after reports that TMC goons are roaming around the hotel and they might create a problem, the meeting was shifted to the residence of one of the leaders.

As the meeting was underway, TMC goons allegedly barged into the house and confronted the BJP leaders claiming that they are hoarding money for distribution before the elections. Barasat will vote in the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections, on 19 May.

Reports state that TMC workers had ransacked the house of the BJP leader Tuhin Mondal. They also vandalised Arvind Menon’s car. Both Mondal and Menon were also allegedly manhandled and assaulted by the TMC goons.

As per the report, the TMC goons created a ruckus inside the BJP leader’s house and it became so chaotic that the police had to intervene. The report states that Arvind Menon had to be rescued from the TMC goons. The police, however, took Meon to the police station.

Outside the police station, there was again altercations between TMC goons and the BJP workers who had assembled to inquire why their party leader has been taken to the police station. Barasat’s TMC MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar too reportedly reached the station and levelled the same allegations on Menon.

The drama at the police station reportedly continued till late night and Menon was allowed to leave the station only after BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya reached there.

Political violence has been rampant in West Bengal during and even before the general elections. Recently, a BJP booth president in Jhargram, Raman Singh was beaten to death by TMC goons.

Yesterday, Mamata Banerjee’s government had denied permission to BJP President Amit Shah from landing his chopper and holding a rally in Jadavpur. Even polling malpractice, proxy voting and violent clashes have been a regular occurrence in the state. Mamata Banerjee herself has been showing very hostile behaviour towards BJP leaders and even PM Modi. Mamata’s government has even declined the Prime Minister’s request to hold a review meeting to discuss relief and reconstruction works after Cyclone Fani.

A week ago, the TMC goons had also attacked the cavalcade of BJP leaders Himanta Biswa Sharma and Dilip Ghosh in Kanthi Lok Sabha constituency. A large group of TMC goons had blocked the road, smashed the windscreens and had damaged over 20 motorbikes in the cavalcade while West Bengal police watched as mute spectators.
