BJP-backed goons rough up TMC workers at Nandagram
Kolkata: Many Trinamool Congress activists received injuries after they were attacked allegedly by a group of BJP-backed miscreants. Some of the injured persons have been undergoing treatment in a nearby hospital.
The incident, which took place at Nandagram village of East Burdwan district on Monday morning, has triggered tension among the local residents. Incidentally, it may be mentioned that elections were conducted at Burdwan East Lok Sabha constituency on the same day.
The district Trinamool Congress leaders have alleged that some BJP-backed goons tried to influence the voters at Nandagram village on Monday morning, when the Trinamool Congress workers intervened.
As they tried to dissuade the miscreants, it led to a heated altercation between the TMC workers and the BJP assisted goons. The miscreants soon overpowered the Trinamool Congress workers and beat them up. They fled immediately after the incident, before the local residents could reach the spot.
The injured victims were rescued and rushed to a nearby hospital by the local people. Senior TMC leaders later visited the hospital to see the injured workers, who are stated to be in a stable condition now.
In another incident, a party office of Trinamool Congress at Joynagar in South 24-Parganas was set on fire by some miscreants. The district party leaders of TMC have accused BJP of setting the party office on fire, which was badly damaged in the incident. The BJP leaders from the district have, however, denied the allegations.
