West Bengal assembly by-poll: BJP candidate manhandled and thrashed in Karimpur allegedly by Trinamool workers

A delegation led by Mukul Roy met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and demanded the immediate removal and arrest of the District Magistrate the Superintendent of Police of Nadia for dereliction of their duty.

The law and order situation in West Bengal shows no signs of improving. Today the Vice President of Bengal BJP and candidate for the party in the by-poll in Karimpur Assembly Constituency, Joy Prakash Majumdar was manhandled and assaulted, allegedly by Trinamool workers while voting was underway in the constituency.

Shishir Bajoria, the state executive member of the BJP, said on Twitter that a delegation led by Mukul Roy met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and demanded the immediate removal and arrest of the District Magistrate the Superintendent of Police of Nadia for dereliction of their duty.

In Karimpur, Majumdar is up against Trinamool candidate Bimalendu Singha Roy and CPI(M)-Congress candidate Gholam Rabbi. The by-poll was necessitated after the sitting MLA Mahua Moitra was elected to the Parliament from the Krishnanagar Lok Sabha Constituency.

BJP-Trinamool clashes have been occurring with remarkable frequency ever since the saffron party emerged as threat to Mamata Banerjee’s political power. Only yesterday, three were injured in clashes between the two parties in Khragapur. Political murders have also been occurring with a troubling frequency. Numerous workers of the BJP have been murdered, however, the state machinery appears utterly incapable of putting an end to the cycle of violence.
