West Bengal: BJP District President’s house, car vandalised, alleges TMC goons also beat up party workers when they tried to intervene

On November 25, during the by-polls in Karimpur constituency of West Bengal, the BJP candidate Jayprakash Majumdar was manhandled, thrashed and thrown in a bush outside the Ghiyagat Islampur School booth. He too had accused the ruling party of the assault.

West Bengal elections have always been marred with violence. Today, when the state’s by-poll results were declared, BJP District President Falguni Patra was attacked and her house and car was vandalised. Patra has accused ruling party TMC for this incidence of hooliganism and alleged that the TMC goons also beat up her party workers when they tried to intervene.

Pathak, whose residence is in Barrackpore Constituency Naihati was quoted by ANI as saying: “TMC workers vandalised my house and cars, today. When stopped by our party workers, they even beat them up.”

The images shared by the news agency shows smashed windshields of her car and broken window panes.

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

BJP-Trinamool clashes have been occurring with remarkable frequency ever since the saffron party emerged as a threat to Mamata Banerjee’s political power. Only yesterday, three were injured in clashes between the two parties in Kharagpur. 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.
