West Bengal: BJP victory procession turns violent, workers say police were accompanied by TMC goons who triggered the attack

Unnerved by the BJP spell which was seen intensifying in these Lok Sabha elections in Mamata's home turf, the West Bengal CM had recently announced the ban on victory processions of the BJP in Bengal

Though the Lok Sabha election 2019 is done and dusted, Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress (TMC) in West Bengal is yet to recover from the jolt they faced at the hands of the Bharatiya Janata Party. The BJP workers have been on the receiving end since the time election preparations were in full swing and are still facing the ire.

In the latest, clashes broke out at Buniyadpur and Gangarampur in Bengal’s South Dinajpur district on Saturday afternoon when the police authorities broke into two victory processions led by Bharatiya Janata Party state unit president and Midnapore MP Dilip Ghosh.

Dilip Ghosh, who was rushed to a safe place by BJP workers as tension rose and more police were deployed to tackle the situation, alleged that the police were accompanied by Trinamool Congress workers who triggered the clash by attacking his men first.

Several BJP workers were also injured in the baton charge by the police. Police also lobbed teargas shells to disperse the crowd. BJP workers also retaliated by showering brickbats on the police force and chasing the men in uniform with sticks.

Police vehicles were damaged while Sub-inspector Ribhu Bhattacharya sustained head injuries and a woman civic volunteer’s leg was broken in the onslaught.

The unrest prevailed for almost three hours. The situation came under control after 2 pm Around 20 BJP workers were rounded up.

The Bharatiya Janata Party had taken out the processions irrespective of the recent ban imposed by West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee.

Earlier too a BJP victory procession was disrupted by TMC goons who hurled bombs at a ‘Vijay Rally’ of the BJP in Birbhum district on May 28.

Probably, unnerved by the BJP spell which was seen intensifying in these Lok Sabha elections in Mamata’s home turf, the West Bengal CM had recently announced the ban on victory processions of the BJP, claiming it would ‘trigger violence’ across Bengal.

Mamata Banerjee had issued a diktat to the police ordering them to take strong action against BJP leaders if they create any trouble by holding victory rallies in the state. Mamata Banerjee has dictated that there should not be any more victory march in the state as over 2 weeks have passed since the announcement of the Lok Sabha election results.

Meanwhile, Banerjee foreseeing what her future in stores, had turned hostile towards BJP much prior to the Lok Sabha elections. She had banned BJP’s Rath Yatra campaign last year, citing ‘law and order’ issues. Her government had also stopped many BJP leaders from holding rallies in the state by refusing permission for landing choppers. Innumerable BJP karyakarta’s were attacked in Bengal.

Amidst these acts of violence, Mamata Banerjee has also shown her opposition to Hindus raising religious slogans of “Jai Shri Ram”. Recently West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee got irked by these slogans and was also seen lashing out at the people and threatening to take action against the people chanting Jai Shri Ram.

Later, she had also unleashed her state police force to arrest few people for chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans in the state.
