This is not the first time a BJP leader was attacked in West Bengal. BJP Chief JP Nadda’s convoy was attacked in December where bricks and stones were thrown directed at his vehicle. February witnessed serious attacks on BJP leaders like Firoze Kamal Gazi and Shibaji Singha Roy as well.
The Election Commission has already sent 125 companies of CAPF to the state of West Bengal.
Meanwhile Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently addressing a rally at Purulia’s Bhangra Nabakunj ground where he promises to work towards the existing water crisis, forced migration and infiltration issues.
