Mamata Banerjee Zindabad: TMC workers attack professor and students for not chanting pro-Mamata slogans

Some female postgraduate students were being forced by the TMCP members to chant "Mamata Banerjee Zindabad". When they objected, they were assaulted and professor Chattopadhyay, who had gone to defend the female students, was allegedly attacked too.

In a horrific incident, a college professor has been allegedly beaten up by Trinamool Congress party workers yesterday by union members of Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) in West Bengal’s Hooghly district after he tried to save students, who were being forced by TMC workers to raise “Mamata Banerjee Zindabad” and “Trinamool Zindabad”.

According to the reports, Subrata Chattopadhyay, the associate professor at Nabagram Hiralal Paul College in Hooghly, was brutally attacked on the campus after he questioned the Trinamool Party workers on why they had kept the college gate closed.

The shocking incident took place on a day the Trinamool rallied support behind a section of activists for writing an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging intolerance across the country.

At around 1 pm, a group of female students was clicking photos in a room after their MA (Bengali) fourth-semester examination. Suddenly some female members of the student union went there and misbehaved with them, said, Professor Chattopadhyay.

A quarrel broke out and professor Chattopadhyay tried to sort out the dispute. The Trinamool supporters then asked the students asked to chant “Mamata Banerjee Zindabad, Trinamul Zindabad”. When they simply objected to it, one of the supporters slapped the students, Professor Chattopadhyay said.

The visuals where alleged members of TMC students wing are beating up students have gone viral on social media.

Reportedly, the Trinamool party workers pushed around the professor and roughed him up. Footage aired by a local TV channel reportedly showed Professor sitting on the ground in front of the college entrance holding his head. “I have sustained injuries on my face and head. Presently, I am lodging a police complaint (at Uttarpara police station). The student union members always behave in an unruly manner but I can’t name them. If I do so I will not be able to step in the campus,” Subrata Chattopadhyay, Professor of Hiralal Paul College in Konnagar said.

Earlier, several HoDs and Deas in the Rabindra Bharti University had also resigned after the alleged harassment of a female tribal staff member by TMC student wing members.

Since Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress lost a huge number of seats in the Lok Sabha elections, there has been an increase in political violence in the state. The lawlessness began with Trinamool party workers unleashing violence against people who chanted Hindu religious slogan “Jai Shri Ram”.

Mamata Banerjee was also agitated several times before by the chants of Jai Shree Ram. She had recently said that she will continue to oppose ‘Jai Shree Ram’ to save the secular character of the country. Mamata Banerjee had also got 10 people arrested for chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ at her.
