There has been an outbreak of violence in West Bengal following TMC’s victory over the BJP. Avijit Sarkar was lynched to death allegedly by a TMC mob. Within hours of winning elections, TMC gheraoed the party office of BJP in Hastings, burnt down party office in Arambagh and attacked BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari who defeated Mamata Banerjee.
